In 1973, the Laser Clay Shooting System would be launched, which would lead to the technology for Duck Hunt, a title that was launched in 1976. Masayuki Uemura later took over the leadership of the development research division.

His goal was to create a console that can be connected to a television and thus bring popular arcade video games into the homes of Japanese gamers. In 1983, Nintendo enabled the purchase of its first 8-bit system with interchangeable cartridges and it would completely change the industry.
