Nintendo is a company, first made to create cards. They later went through the transition to a video game series, getting their first big hit in the game Donkey Kong, featuring a character called Jumpman. They are responsible for publishing the EarthBound/Mother series. They are also responsible for the Super Smash Bros. series, which features Ness and Lucas, the protagonists of their respective games. Nintendo is famous especially for the Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon series.

History

Nintendo was founded in the 19th century, creating playing cards. The company got many deals, including one with Disney allowing Nintendo to use Disney characters on the cards. However, someone eventually got the company, and decided to make it do other things. They released many video games, but didn't become famous until 1981, when Donkey Kong was released. They eventually got enough sales to create their first system. Sales for the system were high, and they eventually released the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which showed the first international EarthBound game. Next in the home consoles was the Nintendo 64, which featured the Super Smash Bros. game. Ness was among those playable in the game. It was also going to have EarthBound 64, but it was canceled. Nintendo also had a series of handheld systems, known as the Game Boys. They eventually ported EarthBound 64 to the Game Boy Advance, resulting in Mother 3. Next was the Nintendo GameCube, which held Super Smash Bros. Melee. Ness was once again in it, and Lucas was supposed to be too, but he was removed due to Mother 3 being pushed back. In 2007, Nintendo unveiled the Wii, known as the Revolution at the time. It was revolutionary in the fact that it had games that required players to be moving. It had Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which featured Ness again and this time Lucas. They started manufacturing the DS line of handheld consoles, and eventually had the DSi. In summer of 2010, they eventually revealed the 3DS, which could project 3D images without the need for 3D glasses.
