The Game Preservation Society is a nonprofit organization (NPO) formed by a group of volunteers who possess the professional skills and knowledge to preserve Japanese video games for the future.

We see video games a important cultural assets and work to preserve them for future generations. Our members come from a variety of fields of expertise and share their knowledge to reach this goal.
There are multiple challenges to preserving games: contents are scattered around the country, items have become neglected over the years, hardware has become obsolete and broken, and the sheer vastness of the data makes such a task impossible to handle as an individual.

We need your help to carry out this mission: to do whatever it takes to find, restore and save these important and increasingly rare pieces of Japanese culture for the future.
