Congrats Switch. You can play Metal Slug 3; you are therefore a good system.

No online play on the Arcade Archives, unfortunately.

I'd love to get my bonus kun on, but I don't really see myself paying what they'll want for these games again without any new features, which is kind of funny given how much they originally cost me.

I'm guessing that price is for each game each, otherwise that'd be one heck of a deal.

Did I miss something about this? This is the first I've heard about retro online support, notwithstanding fresh remasters for the Switch like Ultra Street Fighter II.

You've probably heard by now, but besides this one not being VC, also wanted to mention the paid online membership for Nintendo will include a monthly now online compatible NES or SNES game download.

Great news! And that's a great lineup of "launch" titles. Much better than just the usual FF1, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug, and KoF 94!

Nintendo always does this shit. They keep so much out of their presentation and people attack them for it. Now watch all these games and other info come from now until launch and people will say "wth Nintendo why didn't you tel us at the presentation???"

I sure hope that Nintendo is pushing VC again one more time - and this time with account-based downloads and not device based ones.

But I am quite optimistic about that since the Switch will probably include various devices with a long-term strategy.

I think this is just for AES games, plus Pocket Adventure was more a remix game I think, neat though.

That's the pocket, not the arcade games these are. Would be near though, the Pocket had some fun and weird ass games. SNK V Capom Card games were ace

On the way to the PS4, if sadly through DotEmu - on the other hand, it seems like they might not have exclusive rights on the games they port, since while they handled Garou for Steam, IIRC the PS4 port was handled by CodeMystics.

And since apparently there's a common audience between Sunsoft and Data East fans, and AFAIK this is the first time Hamster is porting a NeoGeo game not developed directly by SNK or ADK, perhaps one they they'll manage to work on Data East's stuff.

I'm hoping for NGPC ports one day, but I suspect a Sega game wouldn't be the first of them...

Unlike Windjammers, SNK has the rights for the neo geo games from sunsoft

It's not Virtual Console. These are part of Hamster's Arcade Archives collection, which is also on PS4 (and XB1 soon).

I had no idea, it's not something that I recall seeing reflected on past releases - was there some announcement or news item I may have missed about that in the past?

I finally get the chance to own Waku Waku 7 without having to chase down that absurdly obscure collection. It's not a remaster, but I'll take it.

And I didn't realize this was also on PS4 and X1.

I don't know if those specific games are coming (though they probably are), but there are already Neo Geo games on PS4 via Arcade Archives with more to come.
