I’m going to cover this news even though they didn’t include Leona in the promotional shot. Harumph.
SNK has released Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 on Nintendo Switch. The retro compilation is now available to download from the Nintendo eShop for around $40, which is less than these titles would cost you if you picked them up today in their original form.
The compilation brings together great titles from SNK excellent but ill-fated handheld from the early ’00s. Included in the package are the previously released Samurai Shodown! 2, King of Fighters R-2, SNK Gals’ Fighters, Fatal Fury: First Contact, The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny, and the brilliant SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium. New to this compilation are cutesy golf sim Big Tournament Golf, RPG Dark Arms: Beast Buster, and both Metal Slug: 1st Mission and Metal Slug: 2nd Mission.
