All The Brands And Companies That Used To Be Known By A Different Name
A lot has changed about Nintendo since the company was started (including it’s name … twice!).
Believe it or not, the company that would go on to become Nintendo was actually started in 1889. It was called Marufuku Company, and they manufactured and sold playing cards. In 1951, the name was changed to Nintendo Playing Card Company. But as we all know, Nintendo doesn’t do playing cards now. They are one of the world’s most popular video game companies. Shorty after the first name change, it was changed once again, to just Nintendo. And thus, Super Mario history was made.
