The lights are on
In order to properly celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Neo Geo, SNK Playmore announced its plans to launch an aptly-named station on PSN. The hub will offer a library of Neo Geo games, available for the PS3 at $8.99 a pop, and PSP for $6.99 each. Some games will be updated to include new features such as verses and co-op play.
The first 10 titles to breach the Neo Geo station will launch December 21, and include Fatal Fury, Metal Slug, The King of Fighters ’94, and more. Additional PSP iterations will follow in January. Check out the full list below.• Fatal Fury (PS3, PSP)• Alpha Mission II (PS3)• The King Of Fighters '94 (PS3)• Samurai Shodown (PS3)• Baseball Stars Professional (PS3)• Magician Lord (PS3)• Metal Slug (PS3, PSP)• League Bowling (PS3)• Super Sidekicks (PS3)• Art Of Fighting (PS3)
Alright some arcade classics to go with my gaming
definitely loved the Neo Geo arcade cabinets from back in the day, spent alot of quarters one Metal Slug and Samurai Showdown
cool, let's wait for the other metal slug games to arrive i still remembre i was always in the corner store playing those games
not a fan of the others
awesome, so many quarters spent in these
Can never beat retro re-releases.
Neo-Geo is probably one of the more underrated systems...but $9 a pop? Eesh...I don't know. $5 and I would've been sold.
I have Samurai Shodown II on 360, but it doesn't hold the same place in my little gamer's heart that the original does.
So this is good news for me.
Ahh Neo-Geo... what a strange place you took in the gaming landscape.
The Neo Geo had so many great games, but I fear some of the very best ones won't be released. Everyone remembers Samurai Shodown and the other well known fighters, but Waku Waku 7 was probably the best fighting game on the system. Pulstar is a fantastic (albeit very difficult) 2d shooter similar to R-Type. For side scrolling action/adventure you can't beat Top Hunter – Roddy & Cathy, definitely superior to magician lord...
And too bad all these carts are extremely expensive if you wanted to get it for the real system, playing on my pc through an emulator never felt the same, and I would much rather have the true old school experience.
Oh, and Super Dodgeball on the Neo Geo was by far the best version of the game made, and is in fact much better than the recent DS remake which was released.
God those games have not aged well...too bad they don't at least upgrade the graphics to HD or fix some of those *** pixels. I would barely pay $3 for any of it.
Make it about $5 each and they definitely have something here.
Metal Slug! 8)
Haha, thats funny because I just recently bought SNK Arcade Classics for PS2 for about $12 and it has most of (if not all) of these games.
