Maybe it's just me, but I don't believe Nintendo was founded in 1889. Phoenix Rider

They first made playing cards, if that makes it any more believable... --YellowYoshi398 20:38, 2 February 2007 (EST)

Hmm... time to research. They were a card company, that part is true. I believe that it was founded in 59, but I'm not completely sure. User:Knife/sig1

They published a hundredth anniversary article in Nintendo Power, and I know I don't have any issues of Nintendo Power from 1959 or 2059. I could dig out the issue if necessary, but it would take some time to find. So take that for what it's worth. --Toadstool Forever 02:45, 24 March 2007 (EDT)

Campus Challenge?[edit]

This page talks of a Nintendo Campus Challenge, in which money prizes were given for top scores. Yet, besides on that page, no mention of a Campus Challenge is on the Wiki. I think it should be added here, as well as the link to that page, thus making that page no longer orphaned. ;D

Virtual boy[edit]

Virtual Boy is under handheld. Although it is portable, you must have a steady surface, and you're sticking your face into a goggle-like thing. I doubt this is considered hand-held. Super Mario 256 07:35, 22 April 2007 (EDT)


Shouldn't the article be longer because they were the ones to create most Mario Universe.

You shouldn't ask people to expand articles, you should do so yourself. And yeah, I'll get back to this after I finish doing recipes and SML2 articles.Knife (talk) 14:48, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

Already got it covered. I have expanded it, and it inludes a lot more information. I also did Gunpei Yokoi in my spare time. Oh, and Knife, you wrote "You Should ask people to expand articles". Well, I fixed it and spelled Shouldn't. However, if you intended on it being Should, then I'm sorry. Anyhoo, I expanded the article, is it good enough? My Bloody Valentine

Japanese Name[edit]

Despite the fact that it may be not needed, one letter of the Japanese name for Nintendo is displayed as ? for me. The other two display correctly. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 10:06, 22 November 2007 (EST)

Terrible logo...[edit]

I don't usually post here anymore, though I just have to explain to you what a terrible choice you made for the logo. Why in the world would you choose the N64 logo over the company's? --Bentendo 11:39, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

The N64 logo belongs in the Nintendo 64 page, not the Nintendo page because this is the company's page not the system's. So I say we keep the image we have. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

... You really didn't read his comment, didn't you? He's complaining that the n64 logo is on THIS page. --Blitzwing 12:41, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

Haha! That's much better! =) Mcoolister Coolister2.png T, C, R

Blitz: Wait... wut? I don't see a logo. Marcelagus (TCE)
In case you didn't notice the fact that my comment was posted 10 minutes ago, the image on this article was a squat n64 logo before Mcool reverted it to it's original version. --Blitzwing 12:58, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

Logo's color change[edit]

I've found recently that Nintendo logo's color scheme was changed to grey now, possibly to just make a match for the current color of the consoles (which are obviously white - or black). I have proofs both Wikipedia and the Official website. Should we change the old red logo for the grey? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Since it's the most recent logo, yes. — Stooben Rooben 21:54, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

The meaning of Nintendo[edit]

Did you know that "Nintendo" means "leave your luck in heaven"? I don't know what this phase means, I just found out from the Guiness Book of Records: the Gamers' Edition. Should we mention it there?

Definitely. For every real world subject related to Mario that we cover on this website, we want to give a general background, and IMO the meaning of the name falls in that. :D Thanks for catching that! Stumpers! 17:28, 4 March 2009 (EST)

World's Largest Bowl of Pasta[edit]

On August 22nd 2002, at Washington Square, San Francisco, Nintendo of America and Buca Di Beppo Resturants made the worlds largest bowl of pasta, weighing at 1480kg. Since it's a world record, should we include this in the 'Trivia' section of the article? SKmaric (talk)

What do you mean by Nintendo of America? Did the company sponsor the event, or were representatives there (i.e. Reggie Fils-Aime)? More importantly, do you have a source? Mario4Ever (talk) 23:14, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

My source is Guiness World Records 2005. I just said all of the information that was there. I don't have any further information. SKmaric (talk)

Does Donkey Kong really count as a Mario game?[edit]

Personally, I don't think so. DuchessSponge5000 (talk) 01:08, September 11, 2021 (EDT)

  • I'm pretty sure Donkey Kong counts as an Mario game. Mario is the main character of the game and Donkey Kong and Pauline have reappeared in later titles. The A Traditional Festival quest in Super Mario Odyssey is a huge reference to that game too. There are also tons of other references of the original Donkey Kong in mainline Mario games too.

Wouldn’it be good to have Nintendo Direct pages.?[edit]

For example a main Nintendo Direct page, would be split up into smaller pages, for example there would than be an article for Nintendo Direct - September 14, 2023, where you can see which content for the Super Mario franchise was announced/shown.
