In its infancy, the company produced Japanese playing cards: the Hanafuda. From the 1970s, the company diversifies its activities by producing toys and arcade terminals. It is thus one of the main precursor companies of the video game. In the late 1970s, Nintendo embarks on the console market and video games. Currently, she is one of the leaders in this market: In 2008, Nintendo is ranked first video game publisher in Japan and second in the United States (NDP Group). As of 2019, Nintendo sold approximately 800 million consoles, all generations and types combined.
Nintendo is one of the few video game companies that have been able to enter some of its licenses, especially Mario or Pokémon, in the common culture, as well as iconic characters from other entertainment companies like Mickey Mouse of The Walt Disney Company. In 2015, Nintendo announces a partnership with Universal Parks & Resorts for the opening of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan in 2020.

The control also ensures loud criticism: the idiosyncratic N64 key assignment has not been implemented in all games useful for the switch controllers. Although Nintendo has a N64 controller for the Switch, but this is currently hardly available and costs an additional 50 euros.
Nintendo: Fans expect more for the price
When Nintendo has announced the smoke price for the expansion package, there were already some loud protests under Gamern. That some of the offered games without the N64 controller can not be adequately controlled and it comes to graphical problems and game breaks, the high price does not justify the high price.
It remains to be seen whether Nintendo will take a closer look at the technical defects and to fix something, on the other hand, or at least with the N64 games as the Legend of Zelda: Majora s Mask, Paper Mario and Pokémon Snap. For the release, the controversial expansion package could not convince at least many subscribers yet.
