Founded in the year 1889, Nintendo used to initially produce handmade playing cards. After trying their hands in different business ventures, which also includes a franchise of ‘love hotels’, the company finally decided to change its gears completely to video games in 1970. After the successful display of their arcade games such as Donkey Kong, Nintendo introduced their first handheld gaming devices in the form of the Game & Watch series in 1980.
