    Definitely dragging the lurkers out. Interesting news and it will moreso when further developments on MAME and resorted assets come about too. I should have gone to MGC this year, flooding outside aside...

    Wow that's crazy. It would be cool on its own to be able to flash your own roms to a board. But to sit on the cards and eventually get them to boot is insane.

    The game looks cool too. I like the idea of the class system it reminds of a DnD fighter or something.

    Hats off to you NTM, thanks for sharing this with all of us.

    This is the kind of shit that makes me appreciate this hobby even more. This clearly falls into the realm of video game preservation. This easily could have been lost forever, and that would have been a travesty. It's always fascinating to find an unreleased game like this, and to have a glimpse into how games were made during the time.

    Very cool find, congrats, and thanks.

    It was really cool watching this being revealed at the MGC. Nice meeting everyone there in person.
    Somehow managed to leave the hotel by 9am, no thanks to the late night Sunday beers offered by jLew! But then again thanks for the beers!

    I tried to "read too deep into things" see any similarities of games published and I have a few candidates, the twins could be inspired on chichi-nene from ragnagard and they have a similar move where one throws the other, tear & wolf reminds me of Igeret also from ragnagard, haves that same ground claw move like geese and the staff and the body motion from Igeret , headcounter as I said before looks like Huitzil AKA Phobos from Darkstalkers, the monk forgot his name moves a bit like Morrigan but way slower. Maybe I'm in shock or maybe someone got inspired by these characters or even worked as a junior for the creators of those characters at school. I don't know I'm amazed that something that looks so appealing never saw the light of day.

    NTM can you try some of the special moves from each character to see if they match please?

    The monk is Albert, also hawk from nakoruru and dog from galford I forgot but just the animals not the characters.

    Apparently, this is not a Technos game, An ex-FACE producer said that this was an outsourced project in 97 called Dragon's Heaven that was put on hold. He believes that ex-Technos staff may have worked on it as FACE did not have any fighter expertise.

    Great info Shou, it's awesome to have a title to associate with this now.

    That's amazing! Is there a link to that information or was it told directly to you?

    EDIT:
    Nevermind, I see that the article was updated:

    Nice to have some more info, thanks Shou-sama. I guess there is no chance the ex Face producer can put you in contact with the people it was outsourced to? It might be a good idea to contact the seller of the board also to see how they came by it.

    1997 -- in regard to versus fighters, RBS, KoF '97 & Last Blade come to mind. The game has more resemblance to the latter, than any other out of the three. It suits the year graphically.

    Face released Money Idol Exchanger in '97... and decided to drop Dragon's Heaven? Last released game by Technos Japan was Super Dodge Ball in '96, so at least they were available for that outsourcing in question. It all fits, at least from an outsider's perspective.

    Is there any new info in that article? Google translate sucks*...

    "Postscript":
    Spoiler:
    And tweet about this game people on Twitter that had been involved in the development at the time, according to it, "Money Idol Exchanger" or not yet released the title of the face that had been developed, such as, and things. But, yes I do not know to be detailed only had hit the character of the dot in the only outsourcing.





    [*but these bits I liked: "NeoTurfMasta who is the thread of the post Lord"; "unknown games like never seen even NEO-GEO mania"]

    Whats also interesting about the FACE connection is many years ago, I bought a similar Dev board from Yahoo auctions. It contained the complete version of Money Idol Exchanger (I posted pics before). The seller also had a few GameBoy protos of MIE which was made by Athena. I'm looking through my Rinkya history to see when that was and if it has a possible seller name.

    Yup! I've pinged Sakoda-San from COMPILE in hopes that he may know somebody, that knows somebody that can help shed more light.

    The game is afoot!

    Money Puzzle Exchanger is God.

    No problem - we actually bought way too damn much. The Neo crew annihilated my stash of cheap Miller Lite on Saturday night (though CDamm covered $$$ for you guys), so I bought for Sunday assuming you guys would kill that as well. Not the case!
