The event, which begins at 12:00 pm EST, will consist of gameplay through all eight games of the Mega Man X series on their original gaming platforms. Viewers will have the opportunity to submit monetary donations for chances to win raffle prizes throughout the duration of the marathon. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Mega Man games.
Storm Unity’s first 24-hour charity event in February raised $1,250. They aim to quadruple their past efforts with a goal of $5,000.
The event has received strong support from the video game industry, including raffle contributions from Harmonix Music, Ubisoft Entertainment, Iron Galaxy Studios, hip-hop artist Megaran, and Capcom (original developer and producer of Mega Man).
