Behind-the-Game Profiles: Kazuhisa Hashimoto

 

Kazuhisa Hashimoto may not be a household name in the gaming community, but the Konami game developer is known for creating one of the most iconic parts of gaming culture. Hashimoto created the Konami code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start), a cheat code featured in many early Konami titles to help players get infinite lives or easier settings, eventually became ingrained in gaming culture. Most old-school gamers know about the Konami code, and other companies pay homage to the code to this day.

 

In February, Kazuhisa Hashimoto passed away at the age of 61, and although he was retired from the company for ten years, Konami still honored the developer’s memory on Twitter. While Hashimoto’s most well-known accomplishment may be the Konami Code, there is far more to his profile than the legendary cheat code.
