- Nintendo has finally officially confirmed that Neo-Geo games will be available on the Virtual Console. They will cost 900 points, and are likely to appear "soon", although a solid date is still to be determined.
The Neo-Geo was a strange old beast made by Japanese company SNK. It boasted impressive technical prowess compared to its 1990 competition, but entered the market at such a high price point and asked for so much money for its games that it soon receded to niche, cult status.
Still, it had its moments and is remembered fondly for The King of Fighters and Metal Slug series among others.
The first titles to pop up on the Virtual Console will be Fatal Fury, World Heroes and Art of Fighting, with many more to follow in the future.
We will let you know when a date hits the airwaves.
