Masayuki Uemura was a Japanese game designer and artist working for Nintendo for over 30 years. He is most famous for designing the D-Pad for the NES controller, which was then used as the set standard in controllers from other gaming companies.

He designed the control pad for the NES controller, known as the D-Pad. The D-pad was a popular design that was used by most console companies until they started making controllers with analog sticks.

The D-pad was used in games even after the Nintendo Entertainment System was discontinued, such as Street Fighter II. It continued to be used by most console companies until they started making controllers with analog sticks. The D-pad on modern controllers can be found on the right side of the controller, or sometimes below it or above it.
Nintendo has also recently added new features to their consoles that make using the D-pad more convenient and intuitive for users.
The D-pad is still an important part of gaming today because it allows players to move around easily without having to use both hands like some other gamepads do (e.g., Xbox One S Controller).
Mr Uemura’s other designs included the Game Boy and Game Boy Pocket.
While Mr Uemura’s work on the NES is likely his most well-known, he also designed the Game Boy and Game Boy Pocket.
The first iteration was released in 1989, and was considered to be an incredible success due to its portability. The device could fit into a user’s pocket, making it easy for them to bring with them wherever they went. With the release of this product came a bold new color scheme: black with red buttons instead of gray. This design choice led many at Nintendo to believe that Mr Uemura had secretly been a fan of Sega all along (they were known for their bright blue color scheme). They were also happy that this new hue would help differentiate their product from competitors such as SNK or Atari Games who had already released their own portable gaming consoles like Neo Geo Pocket Color or Lynx Portable Handheld System respectively.
But before long players began complaining about how difficult it was for them read text on their screens during daylight hours because they weren’t bright enough; many went so far as saying that if they wanted something more portable than just carrying around an entire TV set then maybe not having such great graphics wasn’t necessarily worth sacrificing! So when it came time making another update less than ten years later there needed changing things up quite dramatically – especially considering all those years spent tinkering away inside these plastic boxes trying build something better than ever before!
