Nintendo has given us so many years of joy that we might even consider them a member of the family. A wildly successful cousin, at that.
After almost single-handedly recovering the video game business from extinction, Nintendo is synonymous with gaming and some of the most beloved franchises of all time, such as Kirby, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and Pokémon, amongst many, many others. Most of us grew up with one or more Nintendo consoles in our homes, and we’re pretty sure the future is still bright for the great N with the upcoming release of the Wii U.

Analyze what this success meant in money terms thanks to the infographic above.
