N.O.M What is the purpose of this website?
上村 This site was created by togemet2 in order to publicly release as well as have a safe backup of Hudson Soft and Nintendo PC ROMs from the 80s. Information, scans and downloads for anything regarding these are extremely rare to come across online. It is important for these to be easily accessible by everyone who goes looking for them that way these games never get lost again.

N.O.M How did you come across these games?
上村 We had recently found copies on a Japanese site called Yahoo Japan Auctions. A long while later, we had won and got them in our possession. From there we proceeded to carefully back up the games and release them here. There are still two undumped Mario. Bros Special versions and a whole heap of other undumped Nintendo and Hudson Soft PC games. If you have any material, you think we may be interested in, please get in contact.

N.O.M Where else can I find similar content?
上村 If you are looking for similar content, I really recommend checking out Gaming Alexandria. It is an early Nintendo preservation website with many high quality scans and very friendly members. The owner of this site (Hubz) helped us tremendously with the creation of this site and the preservation of Hudson Soft and Nintendo games. Without him, it wouldn't have been possible. Another place to check out is our affiliate, the 1-Up World Discord server. Here is a huge server where you can meet many dedicated Mario fans and talk about anything you like regarding the series.
