When Samurai Shodown launched for Nintendo Switch, a surprise bonus came in the form of a port of Samurai Shodown! 2. The NeoGeo Pocket Color title was an obscure rarity from that Game Boy competitor’s catalog of games and for many it seemed to be a one-off release. That changed when SNK followed up with a port of SNK Gals’ Fighters—two NeoGeo Pocket Color Ports? Now things were getting interesting. Today, they became even more so with the announcement of NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection:

NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection is a publishing initiative by SNK that will bring multiple classic games from the handheld’s library to Nintendo Switch. First up will be a general release of Samurai Shodown! 2 (it was only initially available as a pre-order bonus) and King of Fighters R-2. These games don’t have firm release dates but will apparently be available at some point this summer. There are more titles on the way beyond these, which is very exciting because NeoGeo Pocket Color was a very underrated platform with quite a few gems. We’ll leave you with a trailer for King of Fighters R-2 and feel free to comment below and on social media!
