Original Nintendo Release Date

Published In: Retro Game News

Ever Want To Know About the Roots of The Orignal Nintendo Release?

Alright, we heard you guys. There has been a lot of confusion on the original Nintendo release date so we will clear this out for you. Just for a quick review, Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a company from Japan headquartered in Kyoto. It is a multinational consumer electronics company which started back 1889 as a producer of handmade hanafuda cards. Their company has been in twist and turns back then due to lack of direction of their company but as the 3rd Nintendo President Hiroshi Yamauchi, took office, they started the video game industry which made them a multi-billion dollar video game empire.


Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was once called the Family Computer or Famicom which was released in Japan on July 15, 1883. It is a small unit which allows people to play games on their TVs which has better graphics and designs compared from those of the old Atari models. This unit was further been developed based on the customers preferences and made the Family Computer changed its name to NES and has been released in New York City on October 18, 1985 with 100,000 systems initially shipped. Two of the systems successes were the Donkey Kong then the best selling Super Mario Brothers (even millennials knew them).  


From there, their success becomes unimaginable since they practically captured the world with these video games. They continued expanding over the years which gained them the popularity of their hundreds of games until now but of course their famous invention also attracted a lot of competition. That said it now becomes a challenge for them to stand out among the rest.
