With Gals’ Fighters out and Samurai Shodown! 2 coming soon, the next NeoGeo Pocket Color game coming to Nintendo Switch this summer will be King of Fighters R-2, AKA one of the best games on the system. Bookmark the NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection website for news on more portable SNK games coming to the Switch.
Huh, SNK just released Gals’ Fighter on Switch. Neo Geo Pocket Color’s cool clicky stick let it host some strangely good fighters, and this was the cutest. Nice to see NGPC games reappearing, and $7.99 is a lot easier to swallow than the $450 a U.S. copy of Gals’ Fighter recently fetched.
The SNK World Championship in Japan has been postponed indefinitely over coronavirus concerns. This event, which would have capped off months of Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters XIV competition, was originally scheduled for late March. The CDC recently placed Japan on ’Alert’ in response to the disease’s spread.
Following in the footsteps of other fighting game devs, SNK recently announced an official competition for both Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters XIV. The SNK World Championship is scheduled for March 2020, and the entire shebang will feature a prize pool of over 10 million yen, or around $95,000.
