Long before Mario and the gang got violent on the soccer pitch in Super Mario Strikers there was Soccer Brawl on the Neo Geo. This futuristic footy game was released in arcades in 1992 and will be the next Neo Geo game headed to the Switch on 23rd November.
In Soccer Brawl you play as either cyborgs or bionically-enhanced humans, while the action plays out like a regular soccer match. There's a element of violence on offer as the title might suggest; for example, defenders can launch electric charges to stop an incoming opponent on their tracks.
Soccer Brawl never did get a release on the Wii Virtual Console, so this fresh to Nintendo platforms. Do you plan on picking it up next week?
