When you think of Nintendo, the first thing that comes to mind is probably Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, and a number of other legendary video game titles, but what you might not be aware of is that the company's origins were far from digital. In 1889, Nintendo was known as Yamauchi Nintendo, named after its founder Fusajiro Yamauchi, who manufactured "Hanafuda", which are Japanese playing cards.
More than a decade later, the company began producing western-style playing cards in Japan, which became popular in both Japan and the rest of the world. Porter is celebrating Nintendo's beginnings with a special edition set of playing cards, complete with Nintendo branding and face cards finished in Porter's signature colors. Porter also created an elastic band in six colors to hold all the cards together.
