Neo Geo

We've just gotten word from the lovely folks at Hamster Corp. in Japan that the ACA Neo Geo series of games has now sold 200,000 games on Nintendo Switch worldwide. That's a pretty monumental achievement, but then we have seen some excellent games so far, including Metal Slug 3, Samurai Shodown IV, Waku Waku 7 and lots more irrestable titles.

Of course, there isn't any real retro competition on the Switch yet until Nintendo itself figures out what it is doing with Virtual Console. Once the usual slew of NES, SNES and N64 games pop up, we'd expect the rate of Neo Geo games to slow down a bit. It's looking very likely that GameCube games might pop up on Switch, too.

The team at Hamster have assured us that lots more arcade hits are on the way soon, including the lovely horizontal shmup Blazing Star this week. Let us know what you think about the ACA Neo Geo Series on Switch with a comment below.
