Nintendo Research & Development 2 (often abbreviated as Nintendo R&D2) was one of Nintendo's first internal development team. The division focused on hardware development and porting games[1]. It was headed by Masayuki Uemura, the designer of the NES and SNES.

In 2004, all of the R&D departments were disolved due to a corporate restructuring. Most of the staff were folded into Nintendo EAD or the newly-created Nintendo Software Planning & Development group.
