UPDATE: Mission complete! Demi raised well over the anticipated goal, and the boys should be off to save Battle Chip Stadium this November. Stay tuned for updates!
We're on a mission to preserve Rockman EXE Battle Chip Stadium, and your help in the upcoming days could make it happen! This Japan-exclusive arcade game is a rare gem, and we want to ensure its future. Plus, you'll get to play it too! Read on for all the details.
The journey to save Battle Chip Stadium started with thorough research, led by our tech expert, GoodTofuFriday. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous source, we obtained photos of the arcade's interior from their personal collection. These photos confirmed that Battle Chip Stadium is based on Capcom's "Medulsion II" arcade hardware, a crucial discovery. With this knowledge in hand, GoodTofuFriday and Demi (Demidyourmc), a dedicated member of the MMBN collector's community, enlisted the help of Team Europe, experts in handling Capcom arcade hardware. Team Europe provided the necessary tools for data extraction.
However, there's a catch – the owner of the hardware is located in France.
The ultimate goal is to raise funds through a livestream to send GoodTofuFriday and Demi to France. They'll meet up with the person who possesses Battle Chip Stadium, open it up, and extract the game data. The livestream is scheduled from September 18th to 22nd, and if successful, GoodTofuFriday and Demi will travel to France in November. In the unfortunate event that unforeseen circumstances prevent data extraction, they are committed to refunding all donations. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to them from the links above or the comment section below.
So, mark your calendars and join us in supporting our community's fundraising stream from September 18th to 22nd. Let's come together and back their mission to preserve the legacy of Rockman EXE Battle Chip Stadium. Together, we'll make history and ensure this cherished game continues to shine in the hearts of fans worldwide!
