From Wikipedia

Nintendo Co., Ltd. (任天堂株式会社, Nintendō Kabushiki gaisha?) is a multinational corporation located in Kyoto, Japan. Founded on September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it produced handmade hanafuda cards. By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as a cab company and a love hotel.

Nintendo soon developed into a video game company, becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan's third most valuable listed company, with a market value of over US$85 billion.

Besides video games, Nintendo is also the majority owner of the Seattle Mariners, a Major League Baseball team in Seattle, Washington.

According to Nintendo's Touch! Generations website, the name "Nintendo" translated from Japanese to English means "Leave luck to Heaven". As of October 2, 2008, Nintendo has sold over 470 million hardware units and 2.7 billion software units.

Trivia:

  • In Vol. 77 of Nintendo Power magazine, published in October 1995, Nintendo offered one lucky winner a spot as an extra in the sequel to The Mask. Production on the movie was halted indefinitely after Jim Carrey declined to reprise his role, which also meant that whoever won the contest had their prize in jeopardy. The Nintendo Power editorial staff did eventually deliver a public apology... in the final issue. Nathan Ryan Runk from Arbutus, MD was the winner and when it was clear that the movie wasn't happening, product marketing manager John Ardell of THQ sent a letter on November 4, 1996 along with a crew jacket, box of games, and $5,000 as compensation.
