Nintendo is one of the most veteran companies in the videogame sector and as you already know, its origins return greater than 130 years back, with the foundation of the Naipes company of Fusajiro Yamauchi . Before devoting himself to videogames, Nintendo won the general public with surprising digital playthings that, in most cases, brought the trademark of Gunpei Yokoi.

Nintendo almost shut down. Then a janitor saved them.

The Structure date of the company is globally recognized and 1889 is the year that has actually appeared in all the company’s history publications, we can also locate it on the official Nintendo site. However, researcher Marcus Richert has actually held a research on the origins of the company published by Techradar, where he doubts the characteristic day.

Richert has encountered records in the commercial directories of the Taisho as well as Showa periods, where the date of the company’s foundation frequently appears as 1892 . The first mention that the scientist has actually found 1889 shows up in the 1936 version of Teikoku Shinyo-Roku by Sekyro Yamauchi, second Principal of Nintendo. Richert points to a possible mistake on the date kept in mind by Sekiryo.

This theory comes from the Scientist of Naipes Hisashi Ishikawa. The Natural Father of Fusajiro Yamauchi was Sosuke Fukui, prior to being taken on by the Yamauchi, as well as card printing documents of the EDO duration released by Dr. Takashi Ebashi find The logo design ‘Fuku’ in the circle , recognized Typically as Marufuku, that still Nintendo utilizes in his Hanafuda cards. This research study would aim that the Natural father of Fusajiro made the first letters and that the ‘Fuku’ of the Marufuku logo of Nintendo comes from the Fukui surname . Now it is only awaiting the inauguration of the future Nintendo Gallery to read more concerning the company’s background.

1893 It is a day that is duplicated in the computer system registries of the time The well-known image of Nintendo’s headquarters in its foundation likewise arouses uncertainties in the researcher. This is based on the testimony of Japanese historians of Masayuki Hasebe as well as Yuki Ootsu bicycles, that position the day of manufacture of the bicycle that we see in the picture a decade after . Interestingly, other indications point in a contrary direction to this later date, as well as the roots of the company can be traced to the Edo duration, when the shogunate still restricted card video games.
