For those NeoGeo X owners who were lucky enough to get their hands on the limited edition entertainment console, SNK Playmore has not forgotten about you. To compliment the already 20 NeoGeo classic games that came with the console, the NeoGeo X is will be receiving a massive “Mega Pack” containing 15 titles on June 25th in North America.
For those who don’t want to purchase the “Mega Pack” collection but still want some NeoGeo titles, you can also buy “Classics” packs which make up the “Mega Pack” separately. There are five of these packs and they will contain three NeoGeo games each.
You can read this list to see what NeoGeo fans can expect in their purchase of the “Mega Pack”, and the separated “Classic” packs.
- Vol I: Sengoku, Metal Slug 2, Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy
- Vol II: Samurai Shodown III, Savage Reign, Super Sidekicks 3
- Vol III: The King of Fighters ’96, Blazing Star, Kizuna Encounter
- Vol IV: Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Shock Troopers, World Heroes 2 Jet
- Vol V: The Last Blade, Blue’s Journey, Art of Fighting 3
Each of the five packs will come with a travel charging cable, a system update that offers control tweaks, numerous audio fixes, and will even include a new save state feature. There is no confirmation on how much the “Mega Pack” and the five “Classics” will actually be, but according to Amazon, the “Classics” will each run $24.99, while the “Mega Pack” will go for $79.99. Though it’s hard to trust Amazon on this, as they seemed to have incorrectly listed the release date as June 6, a date that contradicts the one on the official press release.
