On this day (September 14) in Nintendo history…

  • Mario's Super Picross was released in 1995 for the Super Famicom in Japan. In this puzzle game, developed by Ape with Jupiter, features hundreds of relaxing yet challenging brainteasers. Each Picross puzzle consists of a numbered grid of tiles which reveal a picture when correctly chiselled away. In Mario's main mode, a wrong move means losing time. However, in the more difficult Wario mode, mistakes are not shown… so be careful! Also, a friend can help by joining in with a second controller.

  • Tatsumi Kimishima became the fifth company president of Nintendo in 2015 after the death of Iwata in July. Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda were also put into senior advisory roles as "Creative Fellow" and "Technology Fellow", respectively. Kimishima described his desire to follow Iwata's general strategy, stating that "Takeda and Miyamoto will be in charge of software development, while I control administration". In May 2016, Kimishima announced that Nintendo were going to start their own film production, and that they were looking for filmmakers for their projects. As President of Nintendo, Kimishima also oversaw the launch of the Nintendo Switch, and appeared in the 2017 Nintendo Switch Presentation. In April 2018, Nintendo announced that Kimishima would be stepping down as president on June 28, 2018, being succeeded by Shuntaro Furukawa.

  • The NIntendo GameCube was released in 2001 in Japan. The GameCube is the first Nintendo console to use optical disks as its primary storage medium. The disks are in the miniDVD format and the system was not designed to play full-sized DVDs or audio CDs, unlike its competitors, and focused on gaming instead. The console supports limited online gaming for a small number of games via a GameCube broadband or modem adaptor and can connect to a Game Boy Advance with a link cable, which allows players to access exclusive in-game features using the handheld as a second screen and controller. Reception of the GameCube at the time was generally positive. The console was praised for its controller, extensive software library and high-quality games, but was criticised for its exterior design and lack of features. Nintendo sold 21.74 million GameCube units worldwide before the console was discontinued in 2007. Its successor, the seventh-generation Wii (some models of which have backwards compatibility with most GameCube software), was released in November 2006.

  • Luigi's Mansion was released in 2001 for the Nintendo GameCube in Japan. In this action-adventure game, developed by Nintendo EAD, it's a me… Luigi! It's time for Luigi to step out of the shadow of his big brother and into the spotlight. The adventure revolves around Mario's often-ignored brother, Luigi, and his quest to solve the mysteries of a haunted mansion and find Mario, who is missing somewhere within. Luigi has to progress through the mansion, from room to room, solving puzzles as he goes.

  • Wave Race: Blue Storm was released in 2001 for the Nintendo GameCube in Japan. In this racing game, developed by Nintendo Software Technology, it's the major constituent of all living matter. It covers an overwhelming percentage of the world's surface. It's colourless, it's odourless, and it's going to be a very big star. After witnessing the stunning wave effects, you're going to have a new level of appreciation for H20. Guaranteed to get your adrenaline going whether you're a fan of racing games in general or water-based racers in particular.
