A Look Inside Nintendo’s Company Guide Book
March 6th, 2014
These images come from Nintendo fan blog Before Mario. Apparently, Nintendo designs a new one every year. The 2014 edition takes visual cues from the company’s past as a producer of hanafuda cards. It features illustrations that show old-school Nintendo toys in hand-drawn style, and provides a detailed company history to new employees.
Apparently, you can still get one if you pass the first few stages of the hiring process, but don’t get a job. Consider it a parting gift.
This is beautiful nerdy stuff, but I can’t help thinking that Nintendo is looking too much like a wasteful government. They have having a tough time financially of late and yet they no doubt spend a ton of money on this kind of thing. Get your gaming act together first, then you can waste money and give out fancy gifts.
