The Zelda series makes several references to other Nintendo games, especially the Super Mario Bros. series, Nintendo's most successful franchise.


Nintendo is a Japanese multinational corporation originally founded on September 23, 1889 in Kyoto, Japan by Fusajiro Yamauchi to produce handmade hanafuda cards. In the mid-twentieth century, the company tried several small niche businesses, such as a love hotel and a taxi company. Over the years, it became a video game company, growing into one of the most powerful in the industry.
