Nintendo Turns 125 Today
Nintendo, best known as the creator of the dog from Duck Hunt, turns 125 today, and if that doesn’t seem like a lot, consider this: when Nintendo first started, Britain still had an empire and Victoria was its Queen.
Yep, today we know Nintendo for iconic video games like Barker Bill’s Trick Shooting and Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents Major League Baseball, but for most of the company’s life it was developing and producing cards, toys, and all sorts of other random ventures. Nintendo didn’t actually get into electronic gaming until the 1970s.
Nintendo was born on September 23rd, 1889, and right now in Japan it is September 23rd, 2014. Happy birthday, Nintendo! Keep up the good work
