Remembering Masayuki Uemura

The staff here at the CVGA were saddened recently to hear of the death of legendary Nintendo engineer Masayuki Uemura at the age of 78. For those who don't know, Uemura was the head engineer behind Nintendo’s first home consoles, including the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and the Super Nintendo (SNES). Gaming couldn’t be what it is today without Uemura and his team; We have a lot to thank him for. Why not come to the archive and play some NES/SNES games in his memory?
