Nintendo is known for being a major player in the video game industry for over 30 years, but the company is much older than that. Nintendo actually began in 1889 as a producer and marketer of Japanese playing cards called Hanafuda. They’ll be combining those humble roots with the current mascot of the company this November by releasing a set of Mario Hanafuda cards in Japan. These special cards will be sold for ¥2,160, which is around $18. Would you like to see them released in the West?
