The History of Nintendo Consoles

Game & Watch (1980-1991)

This was the first handheld console by Nintendo and was produced as pocket-sized with a LED screen. Creator Gunpei Yokoi took the basics of the calculator and created a device which played games as well as told the time. The device oversaw the creation of the D-Pad, which revolutionized all video game console controllers to this day.
