A giant in the gaming industry that has revolutionized video game play, Nintendo has recently launched its latest development, the Switch, in a bid to continue its tradition of innovation. Released worldwide on March 3, 2017, Nintendo Switch is a hybrid that can be used both as a home console and as a portable device. Although it has enjoyed strong sales in its first few weeks, it remains to be seen whether the new device will be another milestone in the history of gaming or it will soon be forgotten. Meanwhile, let’s have a look at the history of Nintendo consoles.
The Nintendo Timeline is a chronological illustration of all major gaming devices released by the company, whether they quietly marked a meaningful stage in Nintendo’s history or they took the world by storm. The image includes both home systems and portable devices, from Color TV Game 6 (the company’s first home console), the famous Nintendo Entertainment System, and Game Boy, to N64, Nintendo DS, Wii, and the latest release, the Switch.
The illustration was created using the Office Timeline PowerPoint add-in and can be copied or reproduced for personal or public use. The free add-in can be used to edit the Nintendo Timeline PowerPoint slide or to quickly build similar visuals either for personal reference or for academic, business and legal presentations. While the free version of the software is fully functional and enables fast timeline creation, the Plus edition comes with more powerful features and customization options.
