Rare Capcom arcade game found
Smitdogg and The Dumping Union have managed to get hold of an extremely rare CP System (CPS-1) game that very few people even knew existed. Ganbare Marin-kun is a medal game set underwater with cute cartoon style graphics. The player controls a submarine and the object is to shoot vessels passing overhead which have different numbers on them.

I've never seen this game mentioned anywhere and it's missing from all the online lists of CP System games on sites such as Wikipedia and System 16.

I'm expecting this might not be that interesting to people here but as a big fan of this hardware I think it's an exciting discovery. It's great that this game will finally be added to Mame and preserved.


Cool find Merlin Thumbs Up Thats a new one to me too.
I spent most of the eighties, most of my life, riding around in somebody else's car, in possession of, or ingested of, something illegal, on my way from something illegal to something illegal with many illegal things happening all around me.

Cool find. Makes you wonder how many "lost"/extremely obscure arcade games there are out there.
Thank you ... I like this forum very much because it is very informative ...

I'd be more excited if it were some kind of beta of SFII, but interesting news none the less.
With it being a medal game and not a 'normal' arcade game probably not many people will be interested in Ganbare Marin-kun. The graphical style is appealing though and it's cool to have a 'new' addition to the CP System library.

Ganbare is now playable on Mame if anyone wants to give it a try. The PCB used to dump the
game is on ebay.

This news is a few months old but as a big fan of the CP System I thought it was pretty interesting. Another long lost CP System game has been found which it seems not many people had heard of. Pokonyan Balloon is a children's ride game. Sylphia, a member of the Arcade Otaku forum, acquired the PCB and kindly dumped it. It's now been added to Mame.
