NEOGEO POCKET COLOR SELECTION for Nintendo Switch

Purple

Wait did they just drop a bunch of games on the eShop or is there a collecton? I am deeply confused right now and may have thrown money away.

There’s a collection. Six of the games on the collection were previously released as separate titles, four have not been. There’s no word of whether the additional games will also get separate releases.

So yeah, it’s kind of a middle finger to people who were already buying the games.

(She/Her)
I wasn't even already buying them. I picked this up like, earlier this month, with the actual collection apparently completely buried everywhere I look. How annoying.

Me, looking at this image: Custom box, ok... Classic packaging, meh. Oh, a steelbook [wanking motion]. Hey that poster is kinda neat, though I don't know where I'd hang it right now... Retrospective book?! WELL I GUESS I HAVE TO BUY IT NOW.

Parish wrote the book to serve as an "NGPC Works" style thing, for what it's worth. I'm probably going all in on this one.

This is gonna help a lot in prettying up the little Neo Geo Pocket nook I’ve been slowly making on my bookshelf. I’m really excited.

Europe is getting a completely different collector’s edition, looks like. It has a lot more stuff, most notably a clamshell repro case with inserts for every game, but honestly I think it looks worse than Limited Run’s effort. I don’t think the box would look as nice on a shelf and the included book looks to be an art book rather than a detailed retrospective.

They’re printing it in very limited quantities and in two different versions, so it’s gonna be a nightmare for collectors. Limited Run’s business model really is ideal for this sort of thing, even if it delays getting the finished project for months.

Putting a record in there is neat, but I'm definitely not trying to get in on 1/600 fast enough.

Pix n' Love does fine stuff, but I find LRG to be generally better. And yeesh, this dual version shit is annoying lol
 
That seems kind of weird, to do SNK and Capcom LEs, when Capcom represents half of 1 game in the 10 game collection. Now if this had Card Fighters' Clash, then it would be justified.
 

Sprite

(He/Him/His)
Card Fighters' Clash is out! I may pick this up even assuming it'll be in a collection.

$7.99 gets you both versions of the game and both languages of the game, each with separate save files. And apparently save files of the same language can interact with each other. Like, on the same system, if I'm reading correctly. Neat! I'm unsure if you can trade or battle with people on other systems, though.

Yeah, I saw the game shadow launched this morning and I brought it up over in the Discord. This is honestly the most excited I've been about a NGPC rerelease since Match of the Millennium. I mean, I still have not yet bought Match of the Millennium, but only 'cuz fighters are a sometimes food for me and there's so much other cool stuff I'd like to buy on the eShop.

I did buy Cardfighters' Clash, though! I am loving it, it's a lot easier to get into than I thought it would be.

Fearful asymmetry
It's extremely accessible. Some people compared it to Yu-Gi-Oh, but I own one of the PSP games, and it's impenetrable to newcomers, likely due to years of feature creep. CFC is as easy as a collectible card game can be to learn while still having strategic merit, which is why I was a big fan of the first two games and utterly despised the more complicated third one on the DS.

Crap. I'm talking myself into a purchase. I own the original on NGPC; I don't need this! (Although I doubt I'll ever see my system or its games again, at the rate things are going.)
