In the late 90s, SNK unleashed the Neo Geo Pocket Color to the world, trying to carve out their turf in a Game Boy Color world. The explosion of Pokémon mania, paired with lack of communication from SNK America and financial troubles, resulted in a short lifespan. Despite only lasting 2 and a half years, the console churned out a bunch of games, many of them well received by critics.
Last month, SNK revealed a new game featuring 10 classics from the era of Neo Geo Pocket Color. Exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, this digital-only game includes some of the best titles the little guy has to offer. They include:
- SNK Gals’ Fighters,
- Samurai Shodown! 2,
- King of Fighters R-2,
- The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny,
- Fatal Fury First Contact,
- SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium,
- Metal Slug 1st Mission
- Metal Slug 2nd Mission
- Dark Arms
- Big Tournament Golf / Neo Turf Masters
