Toshihiko Nakago in 2010.

Toshihiko Nakago (中郷 俊彦), born 1957, is a video game programmer, manager, and supervisor, and now the president of Systems Research & Development, a development company that has worked very close with Nintendo ever since they began their involvement with home video games. He was the primary programmer for a lot of Nintendo's early Famicom and Nintendo Entertainment System titles. He became a director of programming in the early 1990s, and a manager of programming in the early 2000s, and now primarily acts as a supervisor.
