While Nintendo's first building that could technically be called their headquarters was around back in 1889, that location was knocked down quite some time ago to make way for a parking lot. There's another building that Nintendo fans will recognize as the first true headquarters of Nintendo, which dates all the way back to the 1930s. It hasn't served as Nintendo HQ in a very long time, but it's about to get a new lease on life
That original building is being given a top-to-bottom makeover, and will be reopening as a hotel in 2021. The building will include 20 rooms to rent, a restaurant/bar, a gym, and a spa. There's a ton of work to do on the building and plenty of time to do, which will only make it all the more interesting when we see what it looks like after the renovation.
There's one final twist to this story that isn't 100% confirmed yet, but hopefully turns out to be true. A few sources have claimed that relatives of former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi are actually still involved with the building. Even if it's not tied to Nintendo by name, it would be great to know that some of Nintendo's history remains a part of the building.
