Kazuaki Morita - Gameography

Kazuaki Morita is a Japanese director and Technical Fellow at SRD (Systems Research & Development). SRD is a software programming company that was established in 1979 and is headed by Toshihiko Nakago. They are a Nintendo partner that programs various Nintendo developed titles. SRD has no capital relationship with Nintendo however has very strong ties to Nintendo, so much so that the company’s games division is actually located within Nintendo’s main office in Kyoto.

SRD has provided programming support for nearly every Nintendo EAD developed title since the mid 1980’s. Morita was one of the few people who worked on the original Super Mario Bros. Morita has worked on many Mario and Legend of Zelda games, as well as Star Fox 64. Today, he mainly works as a program director on the Legend of Zelda series.
