Mega Man Battle & Fighters, from Neo Geo Pocket Color to Switch

Missing Mega Man? As we understand you. Until Capcom offers its own compilation of the Battle Network series, we can always count on SNK to pull Mega Man Battle & Fighters out of its hat on Switch. Either a port of one more Neo Geo Pocket Color game to his credit, but on a completely different license than KOF or Metal Slug.

Unpublished in the West, and at the same time offered entirely in Japanese, this fighting game actually hides the adaptation of two titles operated in arcades, Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, also ported to PS2 . Two curiosities altogether quite rare, and here transformed by SNK to ensure the transition on its own portable machine, which immediately takes us back to the early 2000s.

As we are on Switch, the exchange functionalities have been deactivated, but it will still be possible to embody Proto Man, Bass, Duo and of course Mega Man to thwart the plans of Dr. Wily and the 40 bosses in his service. Between action and fight, the player will also be able to complete the rich database of 36 entries, to return to the robots of the saga with 38 million copies sold. All while taking advantage of the usual comfort options of the Neo Geo Pocket Color emulator well known to retrogaming enthusiasts. Advertised price: $7.99, and probably the equivalent on this side of the Atlantic.
