Lance Barr, designer of the North American NES and SNES consoles, has announced his departure from Nintendo after an almost 39 year stint.
Barr’s design influence also touched the NES Zapper lightgun controller, the NES Advantage arcade stick, and the revised NES Max pad.
Barr first joined Nintendo in 1982 as a design and brand director, initially working on arcade cabinets.
More recently, Barr helped design the Wii’s Nunchuck controller (thanks, Nintendo Life).
