Nintendo Koppai/Nintendo Playing Card Co.
This logo was used on early products such as Japanese playing cards. The characters, in order, are Nin, ten, and do.
By this point, Nintendo's wordmark began to bear, more or less, a resemblance to what it is today.
This logo was shaped as a hexagon and was used on toys until 1970.
In 1970, the shape was changed to rounded rectangle, which would become the main design for over 40 years.
Only use on copyright notice and Game Boy boot up
Starting in 1977, the racetrack was added to the logo to surround the text.
This logo was adopted when Nintendo became an electronic game company since 1983. The current logo is a little bolder and the racetrack fits tighter around the text when compared to the earlier version.
In 2008, the logo's color scheme was changed from red to gray. The red logo can still be seen in some cases.
In 2016, Nintendo phased out their gray variant as the company's main logo and re-introduced the red colour, but as a background colour against a white variant of their logo. This mirrors the branding of the Nintendo Switch where the logo is normally contained within a red box.
