Masayuki Uemura (born June 20th, 1943, died December 6th 2021) was the creator of the Nintendo Entertainment System, NES Zapper, Famicom Disk System, and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. He also developed several Nintendo Entertainment System games, such as Baseball and Clu-Clu Land. He retired from Nintendo in 2004. He would then go on to become a professor at Ritsumeikan University. Without him, the video game crash of 1983 would likely last longer.

RCGS (short for Ritsumeikan Center for Game Studies) announced his death on December 9th, 2021. The funeral of Masayuki Uemura was held by his family.
