One week after its announcement, SNK launches NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 on Nintendo Switch. This compilation includes ten classic handheld titles, previously released separately on the Nintendo Digital Store, in a single package.
Ten great classics of one contemporary Game Boy Color (1999) handheld console, and that despite not being very successful outside of Japan, it hosted great conversions of many of SNK’s arcade classics, such as Metal Slug, The King of Fighters or Fatal Fury, and that you can enjoy here on television or on a laptop.
These are the games included:
- Metal Slug 1st Mission
- Metal Slug 2nd Mission
- Big Tournament Golf
- Dark Arms Best Buster 1999
- SNK Gals’ Fighters
- Samurai Shodown 2
- King of Fighter R-2
- The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny
- Fatal Fury First Contact
- SNK vs Capcom: The Match of the Millennium
NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 also includes a curious option for the most nostalgic, which allows you to see the original games (that is, their boxes and cartridges) as 3D models. In addition, you can play it with monochrome graphics.
This collection of games is available for 39.99 euros on the Nintendo Switch eShop, although they are also sold separately. The last of them, SNK vs. Capcom The Match of the Millennium, it came out just a month ago.
What do you think of this selection of SNK games? Many of them appear in our selection of Top 20 NEO GEO Pocket Color Games… But SNK also looks to the future, and this year The King of FighterS XV is coming out … plus a Neo Geo reissue.
