Happy 125th birthday Nintendo!
Nintendo is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Founded on September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards. By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as cab services and love hotels.
Abandoning previous ventures in favor of toys in the 1960s, Nintendo then developed into a video game company in the 1970s, ultimately becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan’s third most valuable listed company with a market value of over US$85 billion.
The name Nintendo can be roughly translated to English as “leave luck to heaven.” As of March 31, 2014, Nintendo reports lifetime sales of over 670.43 million hardware units and 4.23 billion software units. [Wiki]
Team Not-Dead ftw
did u know, there’s this small rural town in japan called obama.
so there’s this girl in a 2007 drama who moved from the city to obama.
and she hates it at first and blames the town for her misery.
i kid u not. didn’t make this shit up.
It’s a reference to classic Mega Man games!
Mega Man’s death comes with an explosion of orbs in his home games, just like in Smash Bros. Nice little reference to canon, eh? We can only hope other characters will get this same treatment. Perhaps knocking out Robin will be accompanied by this music and Chrom shouting “No! Not you, Robin! Open your eyes! OPEN YOUR EYES!”
We’re being sarcastic that would be awful in Smash Bros
yeah but why does that happen, like in-universe
Day 39. They still think I’m made of fluffy stuff.
