Nintendo’s hardware designer, Genyo Takeda, has been awarded a place in the AIAS Hall of Fame; joining the likes of Shigeru Miyamoto who was indicated in 1998. He is Nintendo’s very first video game designer; who began working with the company in 1972, and designing Nintendo’s first video game, EVR Race.

He designed Star Tropics and Punchout, although his most noteworthy contributions came with his role as a hardware designer. His biggest win was the Wii, and the business philosophy around it of industry expansion.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
