I never knew that Nintendo started out making card games before they became a video game powerhouse. The man behind that transition was one Hiroshi Yamauchi. Shame to hear about his passing, I spent many an hour as a kid playing my NES, SNES and N64.
Also, one of Nintendo's composers remixed a couple of classic themes(Metroid and Super Mario Land) to honor his memory. He did a great job on them. Soundcloud links:
