Gaming Ads: Kaneko USA and Backfilling #3

Founded as Kaneko Seisakusho Co., Ltd. by Hiroshi Kaneko in 1980, the Japan-based Kaneko was a developer of arcade games for most of the '80s before getting into console game development. In 1990 Kaneko USA opened in Illinois and published a handful of games, and even developed the game Chester Cheetah: Wild Wild Quest, before closing in 1994. Kaneko of Japan launched its own cartridge-based arcade system in 1996 called the Kaneko Super Nova System but less than 20 games were released for it (only two in the U.S.). By the end of the '90s Kaneko was not doing well financially and in 2006 went of business.

Since I only have five ads for Kaneko I'm going to add three more ads to the Capcom album this week as well.
