Nintendo - Statistics & Facts

Nintendo is a multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Founded in September 1889 as a small Japanese firm producing handmade playing cards, Nintendo has evolved into one of the largest video games manufacturing companies, generating about 11 billion U.S dollars in net sales in 2019. The largest share of Nintendo's revenue is generated in the Americas, which contributed around 5.3 billion U.S dollars for the fiscal year of 2019. Nintendo possesses a global workforce of 5,944 employees as of 2019.

While its two main rivals in the gaming industry, Microsoft and Sony, rely almost solely on third-party software for their consoles, a significant proportion of Nintendo games are created and developed in-house. The company is known to have created some of the most popular video game franchises in the industry, such as Mario and The Legend of Zelda, and it also is a part owner of The Pokémon Company. One of the newest games in the Mario franchise, Super Mario Odyssey, has sold about 17.4 million copies as of March 2020.

The Nintendo Wii (succeeded by the Wii U in 2012) is one of the company’s most successful brand products having sold over 100 million units worldwide. However, the Wii is quickly being caught up by Nintendo's newest console, the Switch, which has sold over 55 million units since its release in March 2017.
