SNK revealed all of the 10 games present in NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol 1, which is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch. In addition to all the fighting games available separately on the system, the compilation includes Big Tournament Golf, Dark Arms, Metal Slug 1st Mission, and Metal Slug 2nd Mission. It is also billed as the first volume, suggesting a second volume with more games could eventually appear. It is $39.99 for collection on the eShop.

The majority of the games in the collection are fighting games. They’ve been appearing on the Nintendo Switch eShop since 2020. Specifically, this all kicked off with SNK Gals’ Fighters in April 2020. Though, technically, the ports really began when Samurai Shodown! 2 was offered with the Switch version of Samurai Shodown. In the months since, those two and The King of Fighters R-2, The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny, Fatal Fury First Contact, and SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium appeared too. As for the four additional games, Big Tournament Golf is a golf game, Dark Arms: Beast Buster 1999 is an action-RPG, and both Metal Slug games are run-and-gun titles.

Here’s the trailer looking at the games.

NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol 1 is available for the Nintendo Switch and includes ten ports of Neo Geo Pocket Color games. The six fighting games are also all available separately for $7.99 each. A physical version is “coming soon.”
