Nintendo is a Japanese multinational video game company widely known for its range of gaming platforms. It is considered one of the biggest video game companies in the world with top-selling and well-known video game franchises including Mario and The Legend of Zelda. Initially founded as a playing card company in 1889, it eventually ventured into the video gaming industry in 1985. With an idea to produce a handheld video game, Nintendo released the Game & Watch series and later the popular Game Boy handheld game console which gained major success.
Nintendo has also introduced more home video game consoles such as the Wii, featuring a motion controller and movement detection handheld device. Its latest release is the Nintendo Switch, a ‘hybrid’ console designed to be played on the go or at home by transforming from a home console to a portable system. It features the Joy‑Con™ controller that provides total gameplay flexibility to switch between handheld-style play or traditional-style controller.
