SNK's Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol.1 has just been updated for the Nintendo Switch. This bumps the game up to version 1.0.2.
SNK Global was nice enough to release the full patch notes over on social media. The update also includes a patch for SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium. Here are the full details:
If you would prefer a digital copy of this compilation which contains 10 classic games, there'll be a physical version releasing on 28th August.

I bought the Gals Fighter and SNK vs Capcom before the bundle was announced. I think I’ll go ahead and get the vol 1 collection but I won’t buy anymore separate Neo Geo Pocket games that’s for sure. 😏
They need to fix the input delay for SNK vs Capcom. it's significantly laggier than the other games.
@shonenjump86 Interested, but... I think I have just about enough games to fill the hole in my heart already. 😅
I'd be much more excited if these updates applied to the single version of SNK vs Capcom. That might already have a rewind function, but it's been a while since I played it. I'd sure like to have an easier time unlocking characters in it though.
@DrDaisy I believe it does. My copy of SNK VS. Capcom: TMOTM is now Version 1.0.2.
The update I need is a physical copy sold in regular stores.
I haven't even unlocked all the characters on the copy I've had for over 10 years. So that tells you that unlocking characters in a right pain in the ass
SNK vs Capcom should also have double money rewards to pay for the secret super moves.
You can still just order one online, they're not out of stock.
@RupeeClock Thanks for the link. I was under the impression that this collection was a LRG thing, but still Pix N Love isn't a regular store, where I could use discounts, or even in Amazon I could wait for a price drop. Physical games should be available to anyone, physical stores included.
@Moroboshi876 Actually, I saw it pop up in a big online retail store in the Netherlands (Bol.com). Release date: August 27th.
@Paperboy Let's hope it eventually comes to other stores, but I really meant Amazon for instance. Or even better (because there I can use 10 EUR coupons I got for my previous preorders) Fnac.es
A trend I'm noticing with these boutique physical releases is that some other smaller sites might order stock to sell themselves.
And with LRG, some of their releases are sometimes sold through Bestbuy.
But yes, having physical games available through common retailers would be ideal, but it doesn't always happen because there are logistics involved for wider-scale releases.
Seems an odd selection of games. Who'd want to play 2 button handheld fighters? I'd be much more interested in the sonic pocket game, biomotor and the snk card fighters.
@Big_Fudge They’re fantastic fighters, SNK vs Capcom is actually a better game than its arcade counterpart.
Neo Geo Pocket Color in particular has a reputation for being primarily fighting games.
Though I do hope that a Volume 2 would include Sonic Pocket Adventure, that'd be something that needs to be worked out with SEGA, who only released four games for the system.
As it happens, there were only 82 games released for the Neo Geo Pocket Color, and a mere 10 games for its monochromatic predecessor!
@RupeeClock yea I never understood who was buying these fighting games. It's not like you could play against anyone, no one had one
@Big_Fudge SNK made these as alternatives to those who couldn't afford the actual NeoGeo. A majority of these games are just deform or demake versions of their NeoGeo counterparts for example Fatal Fury: First Contact is just Real Bout 2 with less fighters (they port Real Bout 2 to NGPC cause Real Bout Special was the last one they left off on the Game Boy), Samurai Shodown! 1 & 2 were just demakes of Samurai Shodown 64 and 64 II: Warrior's Rage.
Sonic Pocket Adventure is just a shorten version of Sonic 2 with no Tails and less levels (you get Emerald Hill, Chemical Plant, Casino Night, Metropolis, the half pipe bonus game, and Wing Fortress only all under different names and different paths and though there are less levels the levels themselves are quite long which result in Metropolis having only two acts while Wing Fortress had just one and because there are only six half pipe levels, there are only six Chaos Emeralds to collect thus no Super Sonic in the game) and Evolution: Eternal Dungeons is just a demake of the Dreamcast games were less dungeons and all fillers scenes cut out. Mega Man: Power Battle and Fighters are just ports of the arcade games.
"If you would prefer a digital copy of this compilation which contains 10 classic games, there'll be a physical version releasing on 28th August." If you prefer a digital copy, wouldn't you get the digital edition and vice versa? Confusing, ain't it.
