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.
