The right section was eventually rebuilt (pictured below), and nintendo left section was reportedly demolished in 2004. Nintendo was founded as Nintendo Karuta [d] on 23 September 1889 [7] by craftsman Fusajiro Yamauchi in Shimogyō-ku, Kyoto, Japan, to produce and distribute hanafuda ( 花札, "flower cards"), [1] [4] nintendo a type of traditional Japanese playing card. [9] The name "Nintendo" is commonly assumed to mean "leave luck to heaven", [10] [8] but the assumption lacks historical validation; it can alternatively be translated as "the temple of free hanafuda".

[11] Nintendo cards had become popular after Japan banned most forms of gambling in 1882, though tolerated hanafuda. Sales of hanafuda cards were popular with the yakuza-ran gaming parlors in Kyoto. Other card manufacturers had opted to leave the market not wanting to be associated with criminal ties, but Yamauchi persisted without such fears to become nintendo primary producer of hanafuda within a few years.

[12] With the increase of the cards' popularity, Nintendo hired assistants to mass-produce to satisfy the demand. nintendo Even with a favorable start, the company faced financial struggle due to operating in a niche market, nintendo slow and expensive manufacturing process, high product price, alongside long durability of the cards, which impacted sales due to the low replacement rate.

[14] As a solution, Nintendo produced a cheaper and lower-quality line of playing cards, Tengu, while also conducting product offerings in other cities such as Osaka, where card game profits were high. In addition, local merchants were interested in the prospect of a continuous renewal of decks, thus avoiding the suspicions that reusing cards would generate. [15] According to data from Nintendo, the company's first western-style card deck was put on the market in 1902, [3] although other documents postpone the date to 1907, shortly after the Russo-Japanese War.

[16] The war created considerable difficulties for companies in the leisure sector, which were subject to new levies such as the Karuta Zei ("playing cards tax"). [17] Nintendo subsisted and, in 1907, entered into an agreement with Nihon Senbai—later known as nintendo Japan Tobacco—to market its cards to various cigarette stores throughout the country. [18] A promotional calendar distributed by Nintendo from the Taishō era dated to 1915 was found, indicating that the company was named Yamauchi Nintendo, and used the Marufuku Nintendo Co.

brand for its playing cards. [19] Japanese culture stipulated that for Nintendo Koppai to continue as a family business after Yamauchi's retirement, Yamauchi had to adopt his son-in-law so that he could take over the business. As a result, Sekiryo Kaneda adopted the Yamauchi surname in 1907 and became the second president of Nintendo Koppai in 1929. By that time, Nintendo Koppai was the largest card game company in Japan. [20] 1929–1968: Expansion and diversification In 1933, Sekiryo Kaneda established the company as a general partnership titled Yamauchi Nintendo & Co., Ltd., [3] investing in the construction of a new corporate headquarters located next to the original building, [21] near the Toba-kaidō train nintendo.

[22] Because Sekiryo's marriage to Yamauchi's nintendo produced no male heirs, he planned to adopt his son-in-law Shikanojo Inaba, an artist in the company's employ and the father of his grandson Hiroshi, born in 1927. However, Inaba abandoned his family and the company, so Hiroshi was made Sekiryo's eventual successor. [23] World War II negatively impacted the company as Japanese authorities prohibited the diffusion of foreign card games, and as the priorities of Japanese society shifted, its interest in recreational activities waned.

During this time, Nintendo was partly supported by a financial injection from Hiroshi's wife Michiko Inaba, who came from a wealthy family.

[24] In 1947, Sekiryo founded the distribution company Marufuku Co. Ltd. [3] A 1949 New Year Nintendo staff commemoration, the former headquarters of Nintendo Playing Card Co., and the headquarters' information plate In 1950, due to Sekiryo's deteriorating nintendo, [25] Hiroshi assumed the presidency of Nintendo.

His first actions involved several important changes in the operation of the company: in 1951, he changed the company name to Nintendo Playing Card Co., Ltd., [3] and the Marufuku Company adopted the name Nintendo Karuta Co., Ltd. [26] In 1952, he centralized the production of cards in the Kyoto factories, [3] which led to the expansion of nintendo offices. [27] The company's new line of plastic cards enjoyed considerable success in Japan. [3] Some of nintendo company's employees, accustomed to a more cautious and conservative leadership, viewed the nintendo measures with concern, and the rising tension led to nintendo call for a strike.

However, the measure had no major impact, as Hiroshi resorted to the dismissal of several dissatisfied workers. [28] In 1959, Nintendo contracted with Walt Disney to incorporate his company's animated characters into the cards. [26] Nintendo also developed a distribution system that allowed it to offer its products in toy stores.

[21] By 1961, the company had sold more than 1.5 million card packs and held a high market share, for which it relied on televised advertising campaigns. [29] The need for diversification led the company to list stock on the second section of the Osaka and Kyoto stock exchanges, in addition to becoming a public company and changing its name to Nintendo Co., Ltd.

in 1963. [3] In 1964, Nintendo earned ¥150 million. [30] Although the company was experiencing a period of economic prosperity, the Disney cards and derived products made it dependent on the children's market. The situation was exacerbated by the falling sales of its adult-oriented hanafuda cards caused by Japanese society gravitating toward other hobbies such as pachinko, bowling, and nightly outings.

[29] When Disney card sales began to decline, Nintendo realized that it had no real alternative to alleviate the situation.

[30] After the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Nintendo's stock nintendo plummeted to its lowest recorded level of ¥60. [31] [32] Between 1963 and 1968, Yamauchi invested in several business lines for Nintendo that were far from its traditional market, and mostly unsuccessful. [33] Among these ventures were packages of instant rice, a chain of love hotels, and a taxi service named Daiya.

Though the taxi service was better received than the previous efforts, Yamauchi rejected this initiative after a nintendo of disagreements with local unions.

[34] 1969–1972: Classic and electronic toys Yamauchi's experience with the previous initiatives led him to increase Nintendo's investment in a research and development department directed by Hiroshi Imanishi, an employee with a long history in other areas of the company. In 1969, Gunpei Yokoi joined the department and was responsible for coordinating various projects.

[21] Yokoi's experience in manufacturing electronic devices led Yamauchi to put him in charge of the company's games department, and his products would be mass-produced. [35] During this period, Nintendo built a new production plant in Uji City, just outside of Kyoto, [3] and distributed classic tabletop games such as chess, shogi, go, and mahjong, and other foreign games under the Nippon Game brand.

[36] The company's restructuring preserved a couple of areas dedicated to hanafuda card manufacturing. [37] The early 1970s represented a watershed moment in Nintendo's history as it released Japan's first electronic toy—the Nintendo Beam Gun, an optoelectronic pistol designed by Masayuki Uemura.

[3] In total, more than a million units were sold. [21] Nintendo partnered with Magnavox to provide a light gun controller based on the Beam Gun design for the company's new home video game console, the Magnavox Odyssey, in 1971. [38] Other popular toys released at the time include the Ultra Hand, the Ultra Machine, the Ultra Scope, and the Love Tester, all designed by Yokoi.

More than 1.2 million units of Ultra Hand were sold in Japan. [13] During the early 1970s, Nintendo began trading on the main section of the Osaka stock exchange and opened a new headquarters. [3] 1973–present: History in electronics 1973–1978: Early video games, and Color TV-Game Color TV-Game The growing demand for Nintendo's products led Yamauchi to further expand the offices, for which he acquired the surrounding land and assigned the production of cards to the original Nintendo building.

Meanwhile, Yokoi, Uemura, and new employees such as Genyo Takeda, continued to develop innovative products for the company. [21] The Laser Clay Shooting System was nintendo in 1973 and managed to surpass bowling in popularity.

Though Nintendo's toys continued to gain popularity, the 1973 oil crisis caused both a spike in the cost of plastics and a change in consumer priorities that put essential products over pastimes, and Nintendo lost several billion yen.

[39] In 1974, Nintendo released Wild Gunman, nintendo skeet shooting arcade simulation consisting of a 16 mm image projector with a sensor that detects a beam from the player's light gun. Both the Laser Clay Shooting System and Wild Gunman were successfully exported to Europe and North America.

[3] However, Nintendo's production speeds were still slow compared to rival companies such as Bandai and Tomy, and their prices were high, nintendo led to nintendo discontinuation of some of their light gun products. [40] The subsidiary Nintendo Leisure System Co., Ltd., which developed these products, was closed as a result of the economic impact dealt by the oil crisis. [41] Yamauchi, motivated by the successes of Atari and Magnavox with their video game consoles, [21] acquired the Japanese distribution rights for the Magnavox Odyssey in 1974, [35] and reached an agreement with Mitsubishi Electric to develop similar products nintendo 1975 and 1978, including the first microprocessor for video games systems, the Color TV-Game series, and an arcade game inspired by Othello.

[3] During this period, Takeda developed the video game EVR Race, [42] and Shigeru Miyamoto joined Yokoi's team with the responsibility of designing the casing for the Color TV-Game consoles.

[43] In 1978, Nintendo's research and development department was split into two facilities, Nintendo Research & Development 1 and Nintendo Research & Development 2, respectively managed by Yokoi nintendo Uemura. [44] [45] 1979–1987: Game & Watch, arcade games, and Nintendo Entertainment System The Game & Watch, a Donkey Kong miniature arcade cabinet, and the NES Two key events in Nintendo's history occurred in 1979: nintendo American subsidiary was opened in New York City, and a new department focused on arcade game development was created.

In 1980, one of the first handheld video game systems, the Game & Watch, was created by Yokoi from the technology used in portable calculators. [3] [39] It became one of Nintendo's most successful products, with over 43.4 million units sold worldwide during its production period, and for which 59 games were made in total. [46] Nintendo entered the arcade video game market with Radar Scope, released in Japan in 1980. Radar Scope rivaled Galaxian in Japanese arcades but it failed to find an audience overseas and created a financial crisis for the company.

[47] To try to find a more successful game, they put Miyamoto in charge of their next arcade game design, leading to the release of Donkey Kong in 1981, one of nintendo first platform video games that allowed the player character to jump. [48] The character, Jumpman, would later become Mario and Nintendo's official mascot.

Mario was named after Mario Segale, the landlord of Nintendo's offices in Tukwila, Washington. [49] Donkey Kong was a financial success for Nintendo both in Japan and overseas, and led Coleco to fight Atari for licensing rights for porting to home consoles and personal computers. [47] In 1983, Nintendo opened a new production facility in Uji and was listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

[3] Uemura, taking inspiration from the ColecoVision, [50] began creating a new video game console that would incorporate a ROM cartridge nintendo for video games as well as both a central processing unit and a picture processing unit. [3] [51] [52] The Family Computer, or Famicom, was released in Japan in July 1983 along with three games adapted from nintendo original arcade versions: Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr.

and Popeye. nintendo Its success was such that in 1984, it surpassed the market share held by Sega's SG-1000. [54] At this time, Nintendo adopted a series of guidelines that involved the validation of each nintendo produced for the Famicom before its distribution on the market, agreements with developers to ensure nintendo no Famicom game would be adapted nintendo other consoles within two years of its release, and restricting developers from producing more than five games per year for the Famicom.

[55] In the early 1980s, several video game consoles proliferated in the United States, as well as low-quality games produced by third-party developers, [56] which oversaturated the market and led to the video game crash of 1983. [57] Consequently, a recession hit the American video game industry, whose revenues went from over $3 billion to $100 million between 1983 and 1985.

[58] Nintendo's initiative to launch the Famicom in America was also impacted. To differentiate the Famicom from nintendo competitors in America, Nintendo rebranded it as an entertainment system and its cartridges as Game Paks, and with a design reminiscent of a VCR.

[52] Nintendo implemented a lockout chip in the Game Paks for control on its third party library to avoid the market saturation that had occurred in the United States.

[59] The result is the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES, which was released in North America in 1985. [3] The landmark games Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda were produced by Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. Composer Koji Kondo reinforced the idea that musical themes could act as a complement to game mechanics rather than simply a miscellaneous element.

[60] Production of the NES lasted until 1995, [61] and production nintendo the Famicom lasted until nintendo. [62] In total, around 62 million Famicom and NES nintendo were sold worldwide.

[63] During nintendo period, Nintendo created a copyright infringement protection in the form of the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality, added to their products so that customers may recognize their authenticity in the market. [64] By this time, Nintendo's network of electronic suppliers had extended to around thirty companies, including Ricoh (Nintendo's main source for semiconductors) and the Sharp Corporation. [21] 1988–1992: Game Boy and Super Nintendo Entertainment System The Game Boy and the Super NES In 1988, Gunpei Yokoi and his team at Nintendo R&D1 conceived the Game Boy, the first handheld video game console based on cartridges.

[3] Nintendo released the Game Boy in 1989. In North America, the Game Boy was nintendo with the popular third-party game Tetris after a difficult negotiation process with Elektronorgtechnica. [65] The Game Boy was a significant success. In its first two weeks of sale in Japan, its initial inventory of 300,000 units sold out, and in the United States, an additional 40,000 units nintendo sold on its first day of distribution. [66] Around this time, Nintendo entered an agreement with Sony to develop the Super Famicom CD-ROM Adapter, a peripheral for the upcoming Super Famicom capable of playing CD-ROMs.

[67] However, the collaboration did not last as Yamauchi preferred to continue developing the technology with Philips, which would result in the CD-i, [68] and Nintendo independent efforts resulted in the creation of the PlayStation console.

[69] The first nintendo of Nintendo Power magazine, which had an annual circulation of nintendo million copies in the United States, was published in 1988.

[70] In July 1989, Nintendo held the first Nintendo Space World trade show with the name Shoshinkai for the purpose of announcing and demonstrating upcoming Nintendo products.

[71] That year, the first World of Nintendo stores-within-a-store, which carried official Nintendo merchandise, were opened in the United States. According to company information, more than 25% of homes in the United States had an NES in 1989. [70] In the late 1980s, Nintendo's dominance slipped with the appearance of NEC's PC Engine and Sega's Mega Drive, 16-bit game consoles with improved graphics and audio compared to the NES. [72] In response to the competition, Uemura designed the Super Famicom, which launched in 1990.

The first batch of 300,000 consoles sold out in hours. [73] The following year, as with the NES, Nintendo distributed a modified version of the Super Famicom to the United States market, titled the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

[74] Launch games for the Super Famicom and Super NES include Super Mario World, F-Zero, Pilotwings, SimCity, and Gradius III. [75] By mid-1992, over 46 million Super Famicom and Super NES consoles had been sold.

[3] The console's life cycle lasted until 1999 in the United States, [76] and until 2003 in Japan. [62] In March 1990, the first Nintendo World Championship was held, with participants from 29 American cities competing for the title of "best Nintendo player in the world". [70] [77] In June 1990, the subsidiary Nintendo of Europe was opened in Großostheim, Germany; in 1993, subsequent subsidiaries were established in the Netherlands (where Bandai had previously distributed Nintendo's products), France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Belgium, and Australia.

[3] In 1992, Nintendo acquired a majority stake in the Seattle Mariners baseball team, and sold its shares in 2016. [78] [79] Nintendo ceased manufacturing arcade games and systems in September 1992. [80] [81] In 1993, Star Fox was released, which marked an industry milestone by being the first video game to make use of nintendo Super FX chip. [3] The proliferation of graphically violent video games, such as Mortal Kombat, caused controversy and led to the creation of the Interactive Digital Software Association and the Entertainment Software Rating Board, in whose development Nintendo collaborated during 1994.

These measures also encouraged Nintendo to abandon the content guidelines it had enforced since the release of the NES. [82] [83] Commercial strategies implemented by Nintendo during this time include the Nintendo Gateway System, an in-flight entertainment service nintendo for airlines, cruise ships and hotels, [84] and the "Play It Loud!" advertising campaign for Game Boys with different-colored casings.

The Advanced Computer Modeling graphics used in Donkey Kong Country for the Super NES and Donkey Kong Land for the Game Boy were technologically innovative, as was the Satellaview satellite modem peripheral for the Super Famicom, which allowed the digital transmission of data via a communications satellite in space.

[3] 1993–1998: Nintendo 64, Virtual Boy, and Game Boy Color The Nintendo 64, Virtual Boy, and Game Boy Color In mid-1993, Nintendo and Silicon Graphics announced a strategic alliance to develop the Nintendo 64. [85] [86] Nintendo, Toshiba, and Sharp also contributed technology to the console. [87] The Nintendo 64 was marketed as one nintendo the first consoles to be designed with 64-bit architecture.

[88] As part of an agreement with Midway Games, the arcade games Killer Instinct and Cruis'n USA nintendo ported to nintendo console.

[89] [90] Although the Nintendo 64 was planned for release in 1995, the production schedules of third-party developers influenced a delay, [91] [92] and the console was released in June and September 1996 in Japan and the United States respectively, and in March 1997 in Europe. By the end of its production in 2002, around 33 million Nintendo 64 consoles were sold worldwide, [63] and it is considered one of the most recognized video nintendo systems in history.

[93] 388 games were produced for the Nintendo 64 in total, [94] some of which – particularly Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and GoldenEye 007 – have been distinguished as some of the greatest of all time. [95] In 1995, Nintendo released the Virtual Boy, a console designed by Gunpei Yokoi with stereoscopic graphics. Critics were generally disappointed with the quality of the games and red-colored graphics, and complained of gameplay-induced headaches.

[96] The system sold poorly and was quietly discontinued. [97] Amid the system's failure, Yokoi formally retired from Nintendo. [98] In February 1996, Pocket Monsters Red and Green, known internationally as Pokémon Red and Blue, developed by Game Freak was released in Japan for the Nintendo Boy, and established the popular Pokémon franchise.

[99] : 191 The game went on to sell 31.37 million units, [100] with the video game series exceeding a total of 300 million units in sales as of 2017. [101] In 1997, Nintendo released the Rumble Pak, a plug-in device that connects to the Nintendo 64 controller and produces a vibration during certain moments of a game.

[3] In 1998, the Game Boy Color was released. In addition to backward compatibility with Game Boy games, the console's similar capacity to the NES resulted in select adaptations of games from that library, such as Super Mario Bros. Deluxe. [102] Since then, over 118.6 million Game Boy and Game Boy Color consoles have been sold worldwide. [103] 1999–2003: Game Boy Advance and GameCube The Nintendo Boy Advance and the GameCube In May 1999, with the advent of the PlayStation 2, [104] Nintendo entered an agreement with IBM and Panasonic to develop the 128-bit Gekko processor and the DVD drive to be used in Nintendo's next home console.

[105] Meanwhile, a series of administrative changes occurred in 2000, when Nintendo's corporate offices were moved to the Minami-ku neighborhood in Kyoto, and Nintendo Benelux was established to manage the Dutch and Belgian territories.

[3] In 2001, two new Nintendo consoles were introduced: the Game Boy Advance, which was designed by Gwénaël Nicolas with stylistic departure from its predecessors, [106] [107] and the GameCube.

[108] During the first week of the Game Boy Advance's Nintendo American release in June 2001, over 500,000 units were sold, making it the fastest-selling video game console in the United States at the time.

[109] By the end of its production cycle in 2010, more than 81.5 million units had been sold worldwide. [103] As for the GameCube, even with such nintendo features as the miniDVD format of its games and Internet connectivity for a few games, [110] [111] its sales were lower than those of its predecessors, and during the six years of its production, 21.7 million units were sold worldwide.

[112] An nintendo product developed by Nintendo during this time was the Nintendo e-Reader, a Game Boy Advance peripheral that allows the transfer of data stored on a series of cards to the console. [3] In 2002, the Pokémon Mini was released. Its dimensions were smaller than that of the Game Boy Advance and it weighed 70 grams, making it the smallest video game console in history. [3] Nintendo collaborated with Sega and Namco to develop Triforce, an arcade board to facilitate the conversion of arcade titles to the GameCube.

[113] Following the European release of the GameCube in May 2002, [114] Hiroshi Yamauchi announced his resignation as the president of Nintendo, and Satoru Iwata was selected by the company as his successor.

Yamauchi would remain as advisor and director of the company until 2005, [115] and he died in 2013. [116] Iwata's appointment as president ended the Yamauchi succession at the helm of the company, a practice that had been in place since its foundation. [117] [118] In 2003, Nintendo released the Game Boy Advance SP, an improved version of the Game Boy Advance with a foldable case, an illuminated display, and a rechargeable battery.

Nintendo the end of its production cycle in 2010, over 43.5 million units had been sold worldwide. [103] Nintendo also released the Game Boy Player, a peripheral that nintendo Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games to be played on the GameCube. 2004–2009: Nintendo DS and Wii The Nintendo DS and the Wii In 2004, the last remnants of Nintendo's original headquarters was reportedly demolished. [119] Later that year, Nintendo released the Nintendo DS, which featured such innovations as dual nintendo – one of which being a touchscreen – and wireless connectivity for multiplayer play.

[3] [120] Throughout its lifetime, more than 154 million units were sold, making it the most successful handheld console and the second best-selling console in history. [103] In 2005, Nintendo released the Game Boy Micro, nintendo last system in the Game Boy line.

[3] [102] Sales did not meet Nintendo's expectations, [121] with 2.5 million units being sold by 2007. [122] In mid-2005, the Nintendo World Store was inaugurated in New York City. [123] Nintendo's next home console was conceived in 2001, although development commenced in 2003, taking inspiration from the Nintendo DS. [124] The Wii was released in November 2006, [125] with a nintendo of 33 launch games. [126] With the Wii, Nintendo sought to reach a broader demographic than its seventh generation competitors, [127] with the intention of also encompassing the "non-consumer" sector.

[128] To this end, Nintendo invested in a $200 nintendo advertising campaign. [129] The Wii's innovations include the Wii Remote controller, equipped with an accelerometer system and infrared sensors that allow it to detect its position in a three-dimensional environment with the aid of a sensor nintendo [130] [131] the Nunchuk peripheral that includes an analog controller and an accelerometer; [132] and the Wii MotionPlus expansion that increases the sensitivity nintendo the main controller with the aid of gyroscopes.

[133] By 2016, more than 101 million Wii consoles had been sold worldwide, [134] making it the most successful console of its generation, a distinction that Nintendo had not achieved since the 1990s with the Super NES. [135] Several accessories were released for the Wii from 2007 to 2010, such as the Wii Balance Nintendo, the Wii Wheel and the WiiWare download service.

In 2009, Nintendo Iberica S.A. expanded its commercial operations to Portugal through a new office in Lisbon. [3] By that year, Nintendo held a 68.3% share of the worldwide handheld gaming market.

Nintendo console produces stereoscopic effects without 3D glasses. [139] By 2018, more than 69 million units had been sold worldwide; [140] the figure increased to 75 million by the start of 2019. [134] In 2011, Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda with the orchestra concert tour The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Nintendo and the video game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. [141] In 2012 and 2013, two new Nintendo game consoles were introduced: nintendo Wii U, with high-definition graphics and a GamePad controller with near-field communication technology, [142] [143] and the Nintendo 2DS, a version of the 3DS that lacks the clamshell design of Nintendo's previous handheld consoles and the stereoscopic effects of the 3DS.

[144] With 13.5 million units sold worldwide, [134] the Wii U is the least successful video game console in Nintendo's history. [145] In 2014, a new product line was released consisting of figures of Nintendo characters called amiibos. [3] On 25 September 2013, Nintendo announced its acquisition of a 28% stake in PUX Corporation, a subsidiary of Panasonic, for the purpose of developing facial, voice, and text recognition for its video games. [146] Due to a 30% decrease in company income between April and December 2013, Iwata announced a temporary 50% cut to his salary, with other executives seeing reductions by 20%–30%.

[147] In January 2015, Nintendo ceased operations in the Brazilian market due in part to high import duties. This did not affect the rest of Nintendo's Latin American market due to an alliance with Juegos de Video Latinoamérica. [148] Nintendo reached an agreement with NC Games for Nintendo's products to resume distribution in Brazil by 2017, [149] and by September 2020, the Switch was released in Brazil.

[150] On 11 July 2015, Iwata died of bile duct cancer, and after a couple of months in which Miyamoto and Takeda jointly operated the company, Tatsumi Kimishima was named as Iwata's successor on 16 September 2015.

[151] As part of the management's restructuring, Miyamoto and Takeda were respectively named creative and technological advisors.

[152] The financial losses caused by the Wii U, along with Sony's intention to release its video games to other platforms such as smart TVs, motivated Nintendo to rethink its strategy concerning the production and distribution of its properties. [153] In 2015, Nintendo formalized agreements with DeNA and Universal Parks & Resorts to extend its presence to smart devices and amusement parks respectively.

[154] [155] [156] In March 2016, Nintendo's first mobile app for the iOS and Android systems, Miitomo, was released. [157] Since then, Nintendo has produced other similar apps, such as Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Mario Kart Tour, and Pokémon Nintendo, the last being developed by Niantic and having generated $115 million in revenue for Nintendo.

[158] The theme park area Super Nintendo World opened at Universal Studios Japan in 2020. [159] In March 2016, the loyalty program My Nintendo replaced Club Nintendo. [160] The NES Classic Edition was released in November 2016.

[164] To expand its nintendo, Nintendo entered alliances with several third-party and independent developers; [165] [166] by February 2019, more than 1,800 Switch games had been released.

[167] Worldwide sales of the Switch exceeded 55 million units by March 2020.

The building belongs to Yamauchi Co., Ltd., an asset management company of Nintendo's founding family. [175] It was further reported that the original 19th-century headquarters was apparently demolished and turned into a parking lot. [175] Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays in the production and distribution of some of Nintendo's products, the situation "had limited impact on business results"; in May 2020, Nintendo reported a 75% increase in income compared to the previous fiscal year, mainly contributed by the Nintendo Switch Online service.

[176] In August 2020, Nintendo was named the richest company in Japan. [177] Nintendo announced plans in June 2021 to convert its former Nintendo Ogura plant, where it had previously made playing and Hanafuda cards, into a museum for the company to be completed by the 2023 fiscal year.

[178] The building has been vacant since these nintendo were transferred to a new Uji plant in 2016. [179] As of 2018, Nintendo is co-producing an animated Super Mario film alongside Illumination, with Miyamoto and Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri producing, set for release in 2022. [180] [181] In 2021, Furukawa indicated Nintendo's plan to create more animated projects based on their work outside the Mario film, [182] and by July, Melendandri joined the board of directors "as an independent and non-executive outside director", to help Nintendo produce further movies through his filmmaking experience, and Furukawa confirmed that work on other animated projects was currently underway.

According to Furukawa, the company's expansion toward animated production is to keep "[the] business [of producing video games] thriving and growing", realizing the "need to create opportunities where even people who do not normally play on video game systems can come into contact with Nintendo characters". Nintendo day, Miyamoto said nintendo "[Melendandri] really came to understand the Nintendo point of view" and that "asking for [his] input, as an expert with many years of experience in Hollywood, will be of great help to" Nintendo's transition into film production.

[183] In February 2022, Nintendo announced the acquisition of SRD Co., Ltd. (Systems Research and Development) after 40 years, a major contributor of Nintendo's first-party games such as Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda until the 1990s, and then nintendo studio since. [184] Products Main article: List of Nintendo products Nintendo's central focus is the research, development, production, and distribution of entertainment products—primarily video game software and hardware and card games.

Its main markets are Japan, America, and Europe, and more than 70% of its total sales come from the latter two territories.

Nintendo's games are sold in both removable media formats such as optical disc and cartridge, and online formats which are distributed via services such as the Nintendo eShop and the Nintendo Network. Marketing Main article: Nintendo marketing Nintendo of America has engaged in several high-profile marketing campaigns to define and position its brand.

One of its earliest and most enduring slogans was "Now you're playing with power!", used first to promote its Nintendo Entertainment System. [186] It modified the slogan to include "SUPER power" for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and "PORTABLE power" for the Game Boy.

[187] Its 1994 "Play It Loud!" campaign played upon teenage rebellion and fostered an edgy reputation. [188] During the Nintendo 64 era, the slogan was "Get N or get out". [187] During the GameCube era, the "Who Are You?" suggested a link between the games and the players' identities. [189] The company promoted its Nintendo DS handheld with the tagline "Touching is Good". [190] For the Wii, they used the "Wii would like to play" slogan to promote the console with nintendo people who tried the games including Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario.

[191] The Nintendo 3DS used the slogan "Take a look inside". [192] The Wii U used the slogan "How U will play next". [193] The Nintendo Switch uses the slogan "Switch and Play" in North America, and "Play anywhere, anytime, with anyone" elsewhere. [194] Trademark During the peak of Nintendo's success in the video game industry in the 1990s, its name was ubiquitously used to refer to any video nintendo console, regardless of the manufacturer.

To prevent its trademark from becoming generic, Nintendo pushed the term "game console", and succeeded in preserving its trademark. [195] [196] Logos Used since the 1960s, Nintendo's most recognizable logo is the racetrack shape, especially the red-colored wordmark typically displayed on a white background, primarily used in the Western markets from 1985 to 2006.

In Japan, a monochromatic version that lacks a colored background is on Nintendo's own Famicom, Super Famicom, Nintendo 64, GameCube, and handheld console packaging and marketing.

Since 2006, in conjunction with the launch of the Wii, Nintendo changed its logo to a gray variant that lacks a colored background inside the wordmark, making it transparent. Nintendo's official, corporate logo remains this variation. [197] For consumer products and marketing, a white variant on a red background has been used nintendo 2015, and has been in full effect since the launch of the Nintendo Switch in 2017.

Entertainment Planning & Development (EPD) The Nintendo Entertainment Planning & Development division is the primary software development, production, and supervising division at Nintendo, formed as a merger between nintendo former Entertainment Analysis & Development and Software Planning & Development divisions in 2015.

Led by Shinya Takahashi, the division holds the largest concentration of staff at the company, housing more than 800 engineers, producers, directors, coordinators, planners, and designers.

Platform Technology Development (PTD) The Nintendo Platform Technology Development division nintendo a combination of Nintendo's former Integrated Research nintendo Development (or IRD) and System Development (or SDD) divisions.

Business Development (NBD) The Nintendo Business Development division was formed following Nintendo's foray into software development for smart devices such as mobile phones and tablets.

It is responsible for refining Nintendo's business model for the dedicated video game system business, and development for smart nintendo. Subsidiaries Although most of the research and development is being done in Japan, there are some R&D facilities in the United States, Europe, and China that are focused on developing software and hardware technologies used in Nintendo products.

Although they all are subsidiaries of Nintendo (and therefore first-party), they are often referred to as external resources when being involved in joint development processes with Nintendo's internal developers by the Japanese personnel involved. This can be seen in the Iwata asks. interview series. [200] Nintendo Software Technology (NST) and Nintendo Technology Development (NTD) are located in Redmond, Washington, United States, while Nintendo European Research & Development ( NERD) is located in Paris, France, and Nintendo Network Service Database (NSD) is located in Kyoto, Japan.

Most external first-party software development is done in Japan, because the only overseas subsidiaries are Retro Studios in the United States (acquired in 2002) [201] and Next Level Games in Canada (acquired in 2021). [202] Although these studios are all subsidiaries of Nintendo, they are often referred to as external resources when being involved in joint development processes with Nintendo's internal developers by the Nintendo Entertainment Planning & Development (EPD) division.

1-Up Studio and NDcube are located in Tokyo, Japan, and Monolith Soft has one studio located in Tokyo and another in Kyoto. Nintendo also established The Pokémon Company alongside Creatures and Game Freak to manage the Pokémon brand.

Bergsala were the only non-Nintendo owned distributor of Nintendo's products, [204] until 2019 when Tor Gaming gained distribution rights in Israel.

Tencent Nintendo has partnered with Tencent to release Nintendo products in China, following the lifting of the country's console ban in 2015. In addition to nintendo hardware, Tencent helps with the governmental approval process for video game software. [205] Tor Gaming In January 2019, ynet and IGN Israel reported that negotiations about official distribution of Nintendo products in the country were ongoing.

[206] After two months, IGN Israel announced that Tor Gaming Ltd., a company established in earlier 2019, gained a distribution agreement with Nintendo of Nintendo, handling official retailing beginning at the start of Nintendo, [207] followed by opening an official online store the next month.

[208] In June 2019, Tor Gaming launched an official Nintendo Store at Dizengoff Center in Tel Aviv, making it the second official Nintendo Store worldwide, 13 years after NYC. [209] Branches Nintendo Co., Ltd. Nintendo's Tokyo office Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan since the beginning, Nintendo Co., Ltd. oversees the organization's global operations and manages Japanese operations specifically. The company's two major subsidiaries, Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe, manage operations in North America nintendo Europe respectively.

Nintendo Co., Ltd. [210] moved from nintendo original Nintendo location to a new office in Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto, in 2000; this became the research and development building when the head office relocated to its present [update] location in Minami-ku, Kyoto. [211] Nintendo of America Nintendo of America headquarters in Redmond, Washington Nintendo founded its North American subsidiary in 1980 as Nintendo of America (NoA). Hiroshi Yamauchi appointed his son-in-law Minoru Arakawa as president, who in turn hired his own wife and Yamauchi's daughter Yoko Yamauchi as the first employee.

The Arakawa family moved from Vancouver, British Columbia to select an office nintendo Manhattan, New York, due to its central status in American commerce. Both from extremely affluent families, their goals were set more by achievement than money—and all their seed capital and products would now also be automatically inherited from Nintendo in Japan, and their inaugural target is the existing $8 billion-per-year coin-op arcade video game market and largest entertainment industry in the US, which already outclassed movies and television combined.

During the couple's arcade research excursions, NoA hired gamer youths to work in the filthy, hot, ratty warehouse in New Jersey for the receiving and service of game hardware from Japan. [212] In late 1980, NoA contracted the Seattle-based arcade sales and distribution company Far East Video, consisting solely nintendo experienced arcade salespeople Ron Judy and Al Stone. The two had already built a decent reputation and a distribution network, founded specifically for the independent import and sales of games from Nintendo because the Japanese company had for years been the under-represented maverick in America.

Now as direct associates to the new NoA, they told Arakawa they could always clear all Nintendo inventory if Nintendo produced better games. Far East Video took NoA's contract for a fixed per-unit commission on the exclusive American distributorship of Nintendo games, to be settled by their Seattle-based lawyer, Nintendo Lincoln.

[212] Based on favorable test arcade sites in Seattle, Arakawa wagered most of NoA's modest finances on a huge order of 3,000 Radar Scope cabinets. He panicked when the game failed in the fickle market upon its arrival from its four-month boat ride from Japan. Far East Video was already in financial trouble due to declining sales and Ron Judy borrowed his aunt's life savings of $50,000, while still hoping Nintendo would develop its first Pac-Man-sized hit.

Arakawa regretted founding the Nintendo subsidiary, with the distressed Yoko trapped between her arguing husband and father. [213] Amid financial threat, Nintendo of America relocated from Manhattan to the Seattle metro to remove major stressors: the frenetic New York and New Jersey lifestyle and commute, and the extra weeks or months on the shipping route from Japan as nintendo suffered by the Radar Scope disaster.

With the Seattle harbor being the US's closest to Japan at only nine nintendo by boat, and having a lumber production market for arcade cabinets, Arakawa's real estate scouts found a 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m 2) warehouse for rent containing three offices—one for Arakawa and one for Nintendo and Stone. [214] This warehouse in nintendo Tukwila suburb was owned by Mario Segale after whom the Mario character would be named, and was initially managed by former Far East Video employee Don James.

[215] After one month, James recruited his college friend Howard Phillips as assistant, who soon nintendo over as warehouse manager.

{INSERTKEYS} [216] [217] [218] [219] [220] [221] The company remained at fewer than 10 employees for some time, handling sales, marketing, advertising, distribution, and limited manufacturing [222] : 160 of arcade cabinets and Game & Watch handheld units, all sourced and shipped from Nintendo.

Arakawa was still panicked over NoA's ongoing financial crisis. With the parent company having no new game ideas, he had been repeatedly pleading for Yamauchi to reassign some top talent away from existing Japanese products to develop something for America—especially to redeem the massive dead stock of Radar Scope cabinets. Since all of Nintendo's key engineers and programmers were busy, and with NoA representing only a tiny fraction of the parent's overall business, Yamauchi allowed only the assignment of Gunpei Yokoi's young assistant who had no background in engineering, Shigeru Miyamoto.

[223] Further information on the fortuitous conversion: Radar Scope and Donkey Kong NoA's staff—except the sole young gamer Howard Phillips—were uniformly revolted at the sight of the freshman developer Miyamoto's debut game, which they had imported in the form of emergency conversion kits for the overstock of Radar Scope cabinets.

[215] The kits transformed the cabinets into NoA's massive windfall gain of $280 million from Miyamoto's smash hit Donkey Kong in 1981–1983 alone. [224] [225] They sold 4,000 new arcade units each month in America, making the 24-year-old Phillips "the largest volume shipping manager for the entire Port of Seattle". [220] Arakawa used these profits to buy 27 acres (11 ha) of land in Redmond in July 1982 [226] and to perform the $50 million launch of the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985 which revitalized the entire video game industry from its devastating 1983 crash.

[227] [228] A second warehouse in Redmond was soon secured, and managed by Don James. The company stayed at around 20 employees for some years. Further information: History of the Nintendo Entertainment System and Howard Phillips (consultant) The organization was reshaped nationwide in the following decades, and those core sales and marketing business functions are now directed by the office in Redwood City, California.

The company's distribution centers are Nintendo Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia, and Nintendo North Bend in North Bend, Washington. As of 2007 [update], the 380,000-square-foot (35,000 m 2) Nintendo North Bend facility processes more than 20,000 orders a day to Nintendo customers, which include retail stores that sell Nintendo products in addition to consumers who shop Nintendo's website.

[229] Nintendo of America operates two retail stores in the United States: Nintendo New York on Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, which is open to the public; and Nintendo Redmond, co-located at NoA headquarters in Redmond, Washington, which is open only to Nintendo employees and invited guests.

Nintendo of America's Canadian branch, Nintendo of Canada, is based in Vancouver, British Columbia with a distribution center in Toronto, Ontario. [230] Nintendo Treehouse is NoA's localization team, composed of around 80 staff who are responsible for translating text from Japanese to English, creating videos and marketing plans, and quality assurance.

[231] Nintendo of America announced in October 2021 that it will be closing its offices in Redwood City, California and Toronto and merging their operations with their Redmond and Vancouver offices.

[232] Nintendo of Europe Nintendo's European subsidiary was established in June 1990, [233] based in Großostheim, Germany. [234] The company handles operations across Europe (excluding Scandinavia, where operations are handled by Bergsala), [235] as well as South Africa.

[233] Nintendo of Europe's United Kingdom branch (Nintendo UK) [236] handles operations in that country and in Ireland from its headquarters in Windsor, Berkshire. In June 2014, NOE initiated a reduction and consolidation process, yielding a combined 130 layoffs: the closing of its office and warehouse, and termination of all employment, in Großostheim; and the consolidation of all of those operations into, and terminating some employment at, its Frankfurt location.

[237] [238] As of July 2018, the company employs 850 people. [239] In 2019, NoE signed with Tor Gaming Ltd. for official distribution in Israel. [206] Nintendo Iberica office in Lisbon, Portugal Nintendo Australia Nintendo's Australian subsidiary is based in Melbourne.

It handles the publishing, distribution, sales, and marketing of Nintendo products in Australia and New Zealand. It also manufactures some Wii games locally. Nintendo of Korea Nintendo's South Korean subsidiary was established on 7 July 2006, and is based in Seoul. [240] In March 2016, the subsidiary was heavily downsized due to a corporate restructuring after analyzing shifts in the current market, laying off 80% of its employees, leaving only ten people, including CEO Hiroyuki Fukuda.

This did not affect any games scheduled for release in South Korea, and Nintendo continued operations there as usual. [241] [242] Policy Content guidelines For many years, Nintendo had a policy of strict content guidelines for video games published on its consoles.

Although Nintendo allowed graphic violence in its video games released in Japan, nudity and sexuality were strictly prohibited. Former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi believed that if the company allowed the licensing of pornographic games, the company's image would be forever tarnished.

[243] Nintendo of America went further in that games released for Nintendo consoles could not feature nudity, sexuality, profanity (including racism, sexism or slurs), blood, graphic or domestic violence, drugs, political messages, or religious symbols—with the exception of widely unpracticed religions, such as the Greek Pantheon.

[244] The Japanese parent company was concerned that it may be viewed as a "Japanese Invasion" by forcing Japanese community standards on North American and European children. Past the strict guidelines, some exceptions have occurred: Bionic Commando (though swastikas were eliminated in the US version), Smash TV and Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode contain human violence, the latter also containing implied sexuality and tobacco use; River City Ransom and Taboo: The Sixth Sense contain nudity, and the latter also contains religious images, as do Castlevania II and III.

A known side effect of this policy is the Genesis version of Mortal Kombat having more than double the unit sales of the Super NES version, mainly because Nintendo had forced publisher Acclaim to recolor the red blood to look like white sweat and replace some of the more gory graphics in its release of the game, making it less violent. [245] By contrast, Sega allowed blood and gore to remain in the Genesis version (though a code is required to unlock the gore). Nintendo allowed the Super NES version of Mortal Kombat II to ship uncensored the following year with a content warning on the packaging.

[246] Video game ratings systems were introduced with the Entertainment Software Rating Board of 1994 and the Pan European Game Information of 2003, and Nintendo discontinued most of its censorship policies in favor of consumers making their own choices. Today, changes to the content of games are done primarily by the game's developer or, occasionally, at the request of Nintendo. The only clear-set rule is that ESRB AO-rated games will not be licensed on Nintendo consoles in North America, [247] a practice which is also enforced by Sony and Microsoft, its two greatest competitors in the present market.

Nintendo has since allowed several mature-content games to be published on its consoles, including these: Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Doom, Doom 64, BMX XXX, the Resident Evil series, Killer7, the Mortal Kombat series, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, BloodRayne, Geist, Dementium: The Ward, Bayonetta 2, Devil's Third, and Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.

Certain games have continued to be modified, however. For example, Konami was forced to remove all references to cigarettes in the 2000 Game Boy Color game Metal Gear Solid (although the previous NES version of Metal Gear and the subsequent GameCube game Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes both included such references, as did Wii game MadWorld), and maiming and blood were removed from the Nintendo 64 port of Cruis'n USA.

[248] Another example is in the Game Boy Advance game Mega Man Zero 3, in which one of the bosses, called Hellbat Schilt in the Japanese and European releases, was renamed Devilbat Schilt in the North American localization.

In North America releases of the Mega Man Zero games, enemies and bosses killed with a saber attack do not gush blood as they do in the Japanese versions. However, the release of the Wii was accompanied by several even more controversial games, such as Manhunt 2, No More Heroes, The House of the Dead: Overkill, and MadWorld, the latter three of which were published exclusively for the console. [ citation needed] License guidelines Nintendo of America also had guidelines before 1993 that had to be followed by its licensees to make games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, in addition to the above content guidelines.

[243] Guidelines were enforced through the 10NES lockout chip. • Licensees were not permitted to release the same game for a competing console until two years had passed. • Nintendo would decide how many cartridges would be supplied to the licensee.

• Nintendo would decide how much space would be dedicated such as for articles and advertising in the Nintendo Power magazine. • There was a minimum number of cartridges that had to be ordered by the licensee from Nintendo. • There was a yearly limit of five games that a licensee may produce for a Nintendo console.

[249] This rule was created to prevent market over-saturation, which had contributed to the video game crash of 1983. The last rule was circumvented in several ways; for example, Konami, wanting to produce more games for Nintendo's consoles, formed Ultra Games and later Palcom to produce more games as a technically different publisher.

[243] This disadvantaged smaller or emerging companies, as they could not afford to start additional companies. In another side effect, Square Co (now Square Enix) executives have suggested that the price of publishing games on the Nintendo 64 along with the degree of censorship and control that Nintendo enforced over its games, most notably Final Fantasy VI, were factors in switching its focus towards Sony's PlayStation console. [ citation needed] In 1993, a class action suit was taken against Nintendo under allegations that their lockout chip enabled unfair business practices.

The case was settled, with the condition that California consumers were entitled to a $3 discount coupon for a game of Nintendo's choice.

[250] Intellectual property protection Nintendo has generally been proactive to assure its intellectual property in both hardware and software is protected. Nintendo's protection of its properties began as early as the arcade release of Donkey Kong which was widely cloned on other platforms, a practice common to the most popular arcade games of the era. Nintendo did seek legal action to try to stop release of these unauthorized clones, but estimated they still lost $100 million in potential sales to these clones.

[251] Nintendo became more proactive as they entered the Famicom/NES period. Nintendo had witnessed the events of a flooded game market that occurred in the United states in the early 1980s that led to the 1983 video game crash, and with the Famicom had taken business steps, such as controlling the cartridge production process, to prevent a similar flood of video game clones. [252] However, the Famicom had lacked any lockout mechanics, and numerous unauthorized bootleg cartridges were made across the Asian regions.

Nintendo took to creating its "Nintendo Seal of Quality" stamped on the games it made to dissuade consumers from purchasing these bootlegs, and as it prepared the Famicom for entry to Western regions as the NES, incorporated a lock-out system that only allowed authorized game cartridges they manufactured to be playable on the system.

After the NES's release, Nintendo took legal action against companies that attempted to reverse-engineer the lock-out mechanism to make unauthorized games for the NES. [253] [254] Nintendo has used emulation by itself or licensed from third parties to provide means to re-release games from their older platforms on newer systems, with Virtual Console, which re-released classic games as downloadable titles, the NES and Super NES library for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and with dedicated consoles like the NES and Super NES Classic Editions.

[ citation needed] However, Nintendo has taken a hard stance against unlicensed emulation of its video games and consoles, stating that it is the single largest threat to the intellectual property rights of video game developers.

[255] Further, Nintendo has taken action against fan-made games which have used significant facets of their IP, issuing cease & desist letters to these projects or Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)-related complaints to services that host these projects.

[256] The company has also taken legal action against those that made modchips for its hardware; notably, in 2020 and 2021, Nintendo took action against Team Xecuter which had been making modchips for Nintendo's consoles since 2013, after members of that team were arrested by the United States Department of Justice.

[257] In a related action, Nintendo sent a cease and desist letter to the organizers of the 2020 The Big House Super Smash Bros.

tournament that was held entirely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic that year. Nintendo had taken issue with the tournament using emulated versions of Super Smash Bros. Melee which had included a user mod for networked play, as this would have required ripping a copy of Melee to play, an action they cannot condone.

[258] Fangames that reuse or recreate Nintendo assets also have been targeted by Nintendo typically through cease and desist letters or DMCA-based takedown to shut down these projects.

[259] Full Screen Mario, a web browser-based version of Super Mario Bros., was shut down in 2013 after Nintendo issued a ceased and desist letter.

[260] Over five hundred fangames hosted at Game Jolt, including AM2R, a remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus, were shut down by Nintendo in 2016. [261] Other notable fan projects that have been taken down include Pokémon Uranium, a fangame based on the Pokémon series in 2016. [262] Super Mario 64 Online, an online multiplayer version of Super Mario 64 in 2017, [263] and Metroid Prime 2D, a demake of Metroid Prime, in 2021.

[264] Nintendo has defended these actions as necessary to protect its intellectual property, stating "just as Nintendo respects the intellectual property rights of others, we must also protect our own characters, trademarks and other content." [263] In some cases, the developers of these fangames have repurposed their work into new projects.

In the case of No Mario's Sky, a mashup of Super Mario Bros. and No Man's Sky, after Nintendo sought to terminate the project, the Mario content was stripped and the game renamed as DMCA's Sky. [265] In recent years, Nintendo has taken legal action against sites that knowingly distribute ROM images of its games.

On 19 July 2018, Nintendo sued Jacob Mathias, the owner of distribution websites LoveROMs and LoveRetro, for "brazen and mass-scale infringement of Nintendo's intellectual property rights". [266] Nintendo settled with Mathias in November 2018 for more than US$12 million along with relinquishing all ROM images in their ownership.

While Nintendo is likely to have agreed to a smaller fine in private, the large amount was seen as a deterrent to prevent similar sites from sharing ROM images. [267] Nintendo won a separate suit against RomUniverse in May 2021, which also offered infringing copies of Nintendo DS and Switch games in addition to ROM images.

The site owner was required to pay Nintendo $2.1 million in damages, and later given a permanent injunction preventing the site from operating in the future and requiring the owner to destroy all ROM copies. [268] [269] [270] [271] Nintendo successfully won a suit in the United Kingdom in September 2019 to force the major Internet service providers in the country to block access to sites that offered copyright-infringing copies of Switch software or hacks for the Nintendo Switch to run unauthorized software.

[272] Nintendo sought enforcement action against a hacker that for several years had infiltrated Nintendo's internal database by various means including phishing to obtain plans for games and hardware for upcoming shows like E3.

This was leaked to the Internet, impacting how Nintendo's own announcements were received. Though the person was a minor when Nintendo brought the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to investigate, and had been warned by the FBI to desist, the person continued over 2018 and 2019 as an adult, posting taunts on social media.

The perpetrator was arrested in July 2019, and the FBI found documents confirming the hacks, many unauthorized game files, and child pornography, leading to the perpetrator's admission of guilt for all crimes in January 2020 and was sentenced to three years in prison.

[273] [274] Similarly, Nintendo alongside The Pokémon Company spent significant time to identify who had leaked information about Pokémon Sword and Shield several weeks before its planned Nintendo Directs, ultimately tracing the leaks back to a Portugal game journalist who leaked the information from official review copies of the game and subsequently severed ties with the publication.

[275] 2020 data leaks Main article: 2020 Nintendo data leak In May 2020, a major leak of documents occurred, including source code, designs, hardware drawings, documentation, and other internal information primarily related to the Nintendo 64, GameCube, and Wii. The leak may have been related to BroadOn, a company that Nintendo had contracted to help with the Wii's design, [276] or to Zammis Clark, a Malwarebytes employee and hacker who pleaded guilty to infiltrating Microsoft's and Nintendo's servers between March and May 2018.

[277] [278] A second and larger leak occurred in July 2020, which has been called the "Gigaleak" as it contains gigabytes of data, and is believed related to the May 2020 leak.

[279] The leak includes the source code and prototypes for several early 1990s Super NES games including Super Mario Kart, Yoshi's Island, Star Fox, and Star Fox 2, and it includes internal development tools and system software components. The veracity of the material was confirmed by Dylan Cuthbert, a programmer for Nintendo during that period. [280] [281] The leak has the source code to several Nintendo 64 games including Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and the console's operating system.

[282] The leak contains personal files from Nintendo employees. [279] Seal of Quality Seal of Quality in PAL regions The gold sunburst seal was first used by Nintendo of America, and later Nintendo of Europe. It is displayed on any game, system, or accessory licensed for use on one of its video game consoles, denoting the game has been properly approved by Nintendo.

The seal is also displayed on any Nintendo-licensed merchandise, such as trading cards, game guides, or apparel, albeit with the words "Official Nintendo Licensed Product." [283] In 2008, game designer Sid Meier cited the Seal of Quality as one of the three most important innovations in video game history, as it helped set a standard for game quality that protected consumers from shovelware.

[284] NTSC regions In NTSC regions, this seal is an elliptical starburst named the "Official Nintendo Seal". Originally, for NTSC countries, the seal was a large, black and gold circular starburst.

The seal read as follows: "This seal is your assurance that NINTENDO has approved and guaranteed the quality of this product." This seal was later altered in 1988: "approved and guaranteed" was changed to "evaluated and approved".

In 1989, the seal became gold and white, as it currently appears, with a shortened phrase, "Official Nintendo Seal of Quality". It was changed in 2003 to read "Official Nintendo Seal". [283] The seal currently reads this: [285] The official seal is your assurance that this product is licensed or manufactured by Nintendo. Always look for this seal when buying video game systems, accessories, games and related products. PAL regions In PAL regions, the seal is a circular starburst named the "Original Nintendo Seal of Quality." Text near the seal in the Australian Wii manual states: This seal is your assurance that Nintendo has reviewed this product and that it has met our standards for excellence in workmanship, reliability and entertainment value.

Always look for this seal when buying games and accessories to ensure complete compatibility with your Nintendo product. [286] Charitable projects In 1992, Nintendo teamed with the Starlight Children's Foundation to build Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment units and install them in hospitals. [287] 1,000 Starlight Nintendo Fun Center units were installed by the end of 1995. [287] These units combine several forms of multimedia entertainment, including gaming, and serve as a distraction to brighten moods and boost kids' morale during hospital stays.

[288] Environmental record Nintendo has consistently been ranked last in Greenpeace's "Guide to Greener Electronics" due to Nintendo's failure to publish information. [289] Similarly, they are ranked last in the Enough Project's "Conflict Minerals Company Rankings" due to Nintendo's refusal to respond to multiple requests for information. [290] Like many other electronics companies, Nintendo offers a recycling program for customers to mail in unused products.

Nintendo of America claimed 548 tons of returned products in 2011, 98% of which became reused or recycled. [291] See also • Lewis Galoob Toys, Inc.
