I did that - designing the NES! 

26 January at the National Videogame Arcade from 7pm

We know all about Super Mario, Metroid and Duck Hunt, but what about the design of the console itself or those iconic controllers? The problem is that to find out that sort of thing youd need to travel to Kyoto and speak to Masayuki Uemura, head of Nintendos R&D department who lead the development of the NES

At the National Videogame Arcade on 26 January for one night only, Masayuki Uemura will be talking about how he designed the NES, the Zapper and the SNES.
