Goodbye, NES & SNES Architect Masayuki Uemura ➶

I played my first Nintendo games in black and white on an NES that my dad brought back to Brazil after a trip to the US, and I loved them!

The reason the games were black and white had something to do with the differences between broadcast color encoding systems of PAL, used in Brazil, and NTSC, used in the US.

Eventually the hardware in my NES was modified and I could play the games in color, but it was, I suspect, an experience that shaped my own visual preferences.

Thank you, Mr. Uemura and team! I will try broadcasting some of those games from my childhood soon.
