Masayuki Uemura – the legend behind such iconic Nintendo hardware as the NES / Famicom, SNES / Super Famicom and Zapper and one of the most important people in the history of the Kyoto company – will be in the UK next week to hold an exclusive talk about his career.

Taking place on Wednesday 26th February at The National Videogame Museum in Sheffield, the discussion will focus on how the former Head of Nintendo’s prestigious R&D2 department designed these massively popular and hugely influential pieces of gaming hardware.

The chat kicks off at 8PM, and the cost of tickets is £30 each. You can purchase tickets here.
