This is a video game that many will remember playing in pubs etcetera many years ago and is still a household name today.
The company Nintendo actually dates back to 1889 and started by producing playing cards for the game of Hanafuda. Over the following decades they tried several different ways of increasing the business, but it was not until 1974 that were moved into the video game industry.
While the video game industry was still in it’s infancy Nintedo released Donkey Kong on July 9th 1981, which was an amazing success. The game has been adapted numerous times into new stories over the years and still remains popular.
Universal Studios actually tried to sue Nintendo over Donkey Kong due to the similarity to King Kong, but the attempt was not successful.
