Finding content that dates back to around the first few months of the Satellaview service is truly surprising since this is a system where it is pretty much encouraged to download new content over old ones, therefore statistically there was more chance to find content from around the end than the beginning.

Finding undumped content entirely is also getting rarer, as the Tamori no Picross one is actually new and seems to be between two of them that were dumped in terms of date.

Satella-Q is also really cool to find, as it is quite uncommon to know that it was originally an offline quiz game where you answer questions and then you send a password in postal letter to St. GIGA to win prizes. There was also a real time soundlink quiz show that was called Waiwai de Q, and has Toad as the main protagonist, eventually the show would be renamed to Satella-Q later on.

The third one is Machi Magazine, which could be translated as “Town Magazine”. This is not a brand new dump but it is 100% functional compared to the other one where we couldn’t be sure of the data’s integrity, but it contains BS-X town lore, specifically it says around the first 138 rumors among 2000 about the town itself, where the first ones talks about how to restore the town’s stolen name and culprit by gathering rumors. Apparently it is filled with fun references and puns.

Unfortunately, according to people who have played the Satellaview firsthand, the BS-X lore had suddenly rebooted at one point, and none of them have ever reached a point where you could solve the stolen town name and culprit. It is truly a mystery that it is kept to this day.

Thanks to our patrons for helping us secure this one!
