National Videogame Museum x Masayuki Uemura
The National Videogame Museum (located in Sheffield, UK) have announced that they are going to hold a special event featuring Masayuki Uemura (who worked as Hardware Designer at Nintendo, and spearheaded the development of the NES and the SNES).
Here’s some details about the event, which will take place on February 26th:
The 26th February will see legendary Japanese game designer, Masayuki Uemura, visit the museum for an exclusive one-night only event where he will be discussing his illustrious videogame career. Uemura-sensei worked as the head of Nintendo’s famous Research and Development 2 team, which designed the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). Since then, Uemura’s creations have sold over 110 million units worldwide, and provided the basis for game franchises such as Super Mario, Metroid and The Legend of Zelda. Uemura-sensei will be holding an exclusive intimate event at the museum, where attendees will be able to meet him and ask him questions about his highly respected history. Mr Uemura very rarely gives talks in public outside of Japan, so being able to have him speak in Sheffield makes this a very special event.
You can get tickets for the event on this website (price: £30).
