Nintendo is an international leader in the interactive entertainment industry, and develops, produces and markets software and hardware. Our games and our TV-linked and mobile consoles set the standards in terms of games fun and challenging, family-friendly entertainment.
The goal of our work is to make people smile. We inspire our customers around the world with professionalism and new ideas, and it’s our goal to expand the number of people who have access to the characters and worlds from games created by Nintendo.
Nintendo was founded more than 130 years ago as a toy manufacturer in Kyoto, Japan, and is above all known for its pioneering spirit, of which we are very proud. We helped the video game market to grow, and continue to make a distinctive mark on it with surprising and innovative products. Consoles such as NES, Game Boy, Wii, Nintendo DS, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch are constantly setting new industry standards.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Nintendo Co., Ltd., Nintendo of Europe (based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany) was established in 1990 and handles Nintendo's operations in Europe. As a company, we operate on an international scale with locations in the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain, among others.
Nintendo has been producing video game systems and games for over 40 years, including the Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy, Wii and Nintendo 3DS family systems. In 2017, our decades of gaming experience came together in one console: Nintendo Switch, a system that can transform to suit your situation, allowing you to enjoy games anytime, anywhere, with anyone.
Over the years, Nintendo has sold more than 5 billion video games and more than 779 million hardware units. This is thanks to the iconic characters that Nintendo has created, among them Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Link and Princess Zelda, Pokémon, the Inklings and many more.
There are three core components to the Nintendo DNA that have been fostered by each and every one of our employees:
Our goal is to constantly redefine entertainment – offering our customers the typical Nintendo experiences with unique and surprising products.
The entertainment market is ever-changing, and Nintendo aims to deliver innovative ways to create fun experiences for everyone.
We aim to be humble, while doing the best job we can. We aim to learn from our experiences in order to improve and evolve.
These components are the source of our ability to create value within a gaming industry that is highly competitive and constantly changing. We know that we need to rely on the strengths derived from the Nintendo DNA to continue offering new and fun experiences. That is why we need proactive internal structures that support people who are willing to take risks without fear of failure and encourage them to get the job done autonomously.
At Nintendo, we will continue to pursue new possibilities for fun while remaining aware of the structures and systems that enable employees, who are steeped in the Nintendo DNA, to continually take on challenges.
