This week's typhoon caused destruction throughout Japan’s Kansai region. Some buildings were badly damaged, while others weathered the storm. Nintendo’s Kyoto headquarters took the “N” out of “Nintendo”.

This is what the headquarters usually looks like.

    My nanna always called it "the intendo".

    What an awesome find that'd be on the street. Holder of the *actual* Big N.

      Is your nanna "the todd" from scrubs?


      My Dad used to do the same! "No intendo until you finish your homework."

    No doubt when the storm finishes they intendo to fix it.

    They should just leave it like that and change the name of the company instead. Like "Hollywoo" in Bojack Horseman.

    And not one, but four different tweets and photos of the same thing in slightly different angles. You outdid yourself today Brian. Head home and put those feet up pal.

    Somewhere out there, Sega is rubbing their hands together while cackling and saying "Yes! We've finally gotten rid of the big N".
