A history of Nintendo consoles


I will be doing a timeline-style infographic on the most popular Nintendo consoles released up until 2018 this year, from the NES all the way to the Switch. The well-known Japanese multinational consumer electronics company has developed 7 home video game consoles and multiple portable consoles for use with external media, as well as dedicated consoles and other hardware for their consoles.

I plan to organize the timeline in the style of world selection seen in New Super Mario bros, as seen here:


Instead of castles/posts/mushrooms/screaming pink princesses, I will replace the graphics with illustrations of the console I am representing. Indesign does have an option to create an interactive PDF, so I will have the information of the console pop up in a new window or speech bubble when the mouse rolls over it. If I am unable to make it interactive due to excessive frustration, I’ll just place the info bubbles below the console.
