Today, Nintendo is celebrating its 124th birthday. The company, established on on September 23, 1889, was quite a bit different back then than it is today.

Initially, Nintendo started out as a hanafuda cards business. Instant rice, love hotels, and taxi services were later added to the mix.

Nintendo began producing video game systems and titles in the 80s. The era brought along the birth of Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and other hit titles.

It’s safe to say that the video game scene wouldn’t be the same without Nintendo. So on that note, happy birthday to the Big N!
