Final week, we acquired the shock Change launch of the Neo Geo Pocket Colour’s Biomotor Unitron — the system’s first RPG. Biomotor Unitron joins the likes of Massive Bang Professional Wrestling, SNK Gals’ Fighters, and Samurai Shodown! 2 (amongst many others) on the system in representing the basic handheld console. And it looks as if Neo Geo followers might be in luck as there might be many extra basic titles on the way in which.
Certainly one of our readers — Durrdevil — acquired in contact after Biomotor Unitron’s recordsdata and discovering one thing fairly fascinating hidden inside. Throughout the sport, there is a file itemizing all the opposite Neo Geo Pocket Colour video games thus far launched, plus some others. Some have already been launched elsewhere, like Darkish Arms: Beast Buster 1999 (which is on the Neo Geo Pocket Choice Vol.1) and Crush Curler (which is a part of the Steam launch of Vol.1). However there are six extra video games that have not been introduced and are but to have seen a rerelease.
Here is a screengrab of the recordsdata, as despatched to us by Durrdevil.
There’s a lot to get enthusiastic about right here, however the six titles talked about are:
- Baseball Stars Colour
- Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun
- The King of Fighters: Battle de Paradise
- Neo Geo Cup ’98 Plus
- Pocket Tennis Colour
These six video games have by no means seen a rerelease earlier than; Falselei! was additionally by no means launched in North America, solely popping out in Japan and the UK. What’s extra, Ganbare Neo Pokekun and The King of Fighters: Battle de Paradise have by no means been launched outdoors of Japan earlier than!
Battle de Paradise is a board sport spin-off (not fairly Mario Social gathering, because it’s solely 1v1) set within the King of Fighters universe, and Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun is a simulation sport the place you observe a bit of man known as Neo Poke-Kun, be sure he is pleased with some fascinating visitors, and play minigames with him. He even turned the mascot for the system till the tip of the Pocket Colour’s life!
In fact, simply because the file names are hidden inside Biomotor Unitron, doesn’t suggest that we’ll be getting any of the video games in any respect, not to mention new localisations for 2 quirky 22-year-old titles. So take this with a pinch of salt. The 2 Japanese-only titles may also solely be launched in Japan, or a few of the different titles may not come to Change — as Crush Curler remains to be listed as Vol.1 regardless of it by no means making it onto the Change launch. Nonetheless, we are able to hope, proper?
