NeoGeo X Classics Now Available in North America


Remember Metal Slug 2 and King of Fighters ’96?  Well they’re about to make their way to a modern handheld.  Tommo Inc., in association with SNK Playmore, announced that NeoGeo X Classics: Volumes 1-5, and the NeoGeo X Mega Pack: Volume 1, all of which have been made for sole use with the NeoGeo X handheld entertainment system, are now available online in the United States from Amazon, Gamestop, and BestSKU and are also available in Canada from EB Games, Future Shop, and Best Buy, with more online retailers for all regions on the way.

Each volume of the five volume NeoGeo X Classics comes with a game card packed with three epic NeoGeo games with a total of fifteen games across five game cards.  The Mega Pack comes with all fifteen NeoGeo games in one game card.  A Rocket Cable, high-speed charging Travel Cable will also be provided with Classics: Volumes 1-5 and Mega Pack: Volume 1.

Here are the games with their respective volumes:

  • Vol. 1: Sengoku, Metal Slug 2, Top Hunter: Roddy and Cathy
  • Vol. 2: Samurai Showdown 3, Savage Reign, Super Sidekicks 3

These game cards also include the NeoGeo X Firmware Update v500 that addresses several issues, improves overall performance, and adds new features.

For the uninitiated, the NeoGeo X compared with other handheld consoles, is relatively young, having just made retail in December 2012.  This a standalone, handheld entertainment system that promises all the features of a home arcade in the palm of your hand.
