Battle Garegga caps

Not really a Q&A but maybe this makes someone to "say hello" to their Garegga pcb:

I'm in the process of going through all my PCBs and checking if any need fixes, battery replacements, suicides need reviving etc.I was surprised to find the 1000uF electrolytics in Battle Garegga in this condition: https://ibb.co/sjb07Ks

Replaced them and fixed the corrosion. PCB works 100% now.

What got me worried / what made me post this is that usually I don't see those caps leaking that much in late 1990s games. SMDs yes, but not THTs. Maybe just bad luck I guess.
