Finally managed to get a switch (thanks to my shiney new credit card) and have been playing around with Mario Odyssey. Liking it so far.

Plus i'll be able to play Yooka-Laylee at last. Limited Run games are releasing a physical version too. Anybody else gonna get this?

awesome! skyskipper to, didnt see that one coming.

having never purchased AAs or Neo-Geo for the switch, do they roll into one package like a compilation or are they separate tiles on the menu? im guessing the latter but would prefer an 'all in one' package.

The NEO GEO titles are all separate titles on the home menu, so its exactly like when buying Virtual Console games on previous Nintendo systems and they're scattered on your menu. People have been begging Nintendo to bring back the folders from the Wii U and 3DS so they can tidy their home menus and have certain titles (Like NEO GEO) all in one place, so that might happen at some point.

Also, if you're a fan of SNK's Pre-NEO GEO days there is a physical collection coming I think in November that has a fair ton of their earliest games.

Hamster are on fire with their Neo Geo releases... I counted the other day there are now 73 Neo Geo games on the eShop, this is just under half of all Neo Geo games (including AES/MVS and CD).

This has to be a record, I don't recall any other system getting this percentage of games.

Well, I don't think SNK ever did any licensed properties, so really its pretty easy for Hamster to port most if not all the library to not just the Switch but XBONE and PS4 as well. Heck, I bet if they asked Capcom nicely they could even get SVC: SNK Vs Capcom released as well. :lol:

Intresting. It'll be worth getting. It has POW on it.
