From humble beginnings producing play cards, Nintendo have been amongst leaders in the video game industry ever since the 1970s. Their earliest consoles include the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Game Boy, which evolved into the Super NES (SNES) and Game Boy Color. As video games became more and more popular around the turn of the century, they released the Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advance and GameCube. Next came the DS and the Wii, paving the way for the 3DS, 2DS and Wii U. After much speculation, in 2017 the Nintendo Switch was released, a hybrid console that can be used both as a handheld device and as a home console, plugging into a TV.
Part of their success, particularly that of the Nintendo Switch, lies in their continued development of nostalgia-inducing characters and franchises. Household names include Donkey Kong, Kirby, Zelda, Mario and Pokémon. Recent big hitting titles that were released with the Nintendo Switch are Pokémon: Let’s Go, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
