Thanks to an update on the European Switch eShop, we now know next week’s NeoGeo game for Switch. The underrated gem, Blue’s Journey will be coming to the system,

 

Blue’s Journey is a side-scrolling action game released by SNK in 1991. In order to save the planet Raguy from the invasion of the Daruma tribe, the hero Blue must fight using leaves, boomerangs, and a variety of other weapons along with his special ability to change his body size. The branching stages allow you to enjoy the game again and again.

Blue’s Journey is very different from most Neo Geo games, and it is highly recommended you give this one a look. It is very good.

Here is some great news for Nintendo. While we may have to wait a bit longer for the virtual console, HAMSTER Corporation has been providing Neo Geo arcade games for us to enjoy.

The company has now revealed that their service has sold 200 000 games on Switch and many more are now planned.

The games are true to their arcade forms and mostly untouched, with some exceptions. They have a few more added features as well, to make these the best arcade ports possible. Have you bought any?

This week’s Neo Geo game for Switch has been revealed via the Nintendo UK site, as the original Metal Slug. Hamster usually puts out the same game for all regions, so this will come to North America also this week, most likely.

METAL SLUG is the original entry in one of the most famous action game series ever released. It was originally released by SNK in 1996 in Japan.

Players control Marco and Tarma who belong to the Special Forces team known as the Peregrine Falcon Squad. They fight to defeat General Donald Morden in an effort to take back their stolen weapon known as the METAL SLUG. Players can utilise various weapons and vehicles such as the METAL SLUG to sway the fight in their favour.

The ACA NEOGEO series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces.

Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores*.

Please enjoy the masterpieces that built a generation of video games.

There is also a trailer here

The game is not as all out bonkers as Metal Slug 3 but is an amazing game in its own right. This is very much worth adding to your Switch collection.

It seems even just a couple of days away from the Switch launch, we are still getting news of launch games.  Hamster’s website  is now saying that the “ACA Neo Geo series will start from March 3, 2017 on Nintendo Switch”. We already knew it was launching alongside the Japanese release of the Switch but this is the first indication that the games will be on the Switch at launch in the west as well. Hopefully this turns out to be the case, as these are some amazing games.
