Beginning as a small Japanese playing card manufacturer in 1889, today Nintendo is one of the biggest names in the video game industry. Generating billions of dollars each year through the sales of its consoles, games and merchandise, the company now ranks among the most valuable brands in the world. Some of the best-selling Nintendo video game consoles include the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii. The Nintendo Switch, the company’s newest generation console product, became an instant best-seller upon its debut in March 2017 and has sold 34.74 million units as of March 2019. The success of the Switch solidifies Nintendo’s standing in the game console industry and brought it back onto the course of revenue growth.
