The Colorful History of Nintendo.

Betcha didn't know that the video game maker Nintendo had a pretty colorful history.

It was founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi in 1889 to produce and sell playing cards made from the bark of mulberry trees!

In 1963, Hiroshi Yamauchi (Fusajiro's great grandson) expanded and diversified his company to include making instant rice, "love hotel" (yes, it's what you think), and even a taxi company before it finally got into video games!
