  Pinball Fantasia: Last Odyssey - Game of the Month

Not too much is actually known about this month's GOTM. In fact only a tiny number of people seem to have witnessed this game in action, and the broader Neo Geo community only know from its existence because of a handful of magazine articles, screenshots and a single gameplay video. Nonetheless it's regarded as one of the holy grails of unreleased Neo Geo prototypes, due to its for its unique genre (at least for the system) and polished aesthetics.



Join our monthly discussion about Last Odyssey, one of the Neo Geo's greatest mysteries till this day. If you happen to know anything about this, please let share it with us. Are we better off without this ever being released or should the people owning the protos finally make them public? I'll let you be the judge.

  New fighting game announced: SNK Heroines - Tag Team Frenzy

Who else remembers SNK's Gals Fighter for the Neo Geo Pocket Color? In that handheld-only spin-off from 2000 the character roster was limited to an (almost) female-only cast and the story was changed from a serious to a much humoristic tone, while the moves and mechanics were almost identical to the King of Fighters franchise. Today's SNK resurrected that very same formula and recently announced their cutesy fighting game SNK Heroines - Tag Team Frenzy for the Nintendo Switch and PS4.


The graphics engine and mechanics seem to be very similar to The King of Fighters XIV with the addition of a new 2-on-2 Tag Team feature, simplified move inputs, cutesy effects and animations, new stages and fully customizable character costumes.

The game will come out in Summer 2018 for said platforms. NIS America is the official publisher for the United States and already announced a massive Diamond Dream Edition for pre-order on the SNK online store.

  GunForce II / Geo Storm - Game of the Month

Let's celebrate the new year with a look back on the roots of Metal Slug, which actually go way back before Nazca produced games for SNK's hardware. The same team that became famous for their highly detailed sprite fests full of explosions and dark humor already made use of their talent for GunForce II, which many players nowadays see as a spiritual predecessor to the Metal Slug series.



Join the action and tell us about your experiences with this one. How well does it hold up nowadays and does it do justice to its spiritual sequels on the Neo Geo? And if you feel like it, come and demand a High Score Challange asap. If you liked the scoring system from Metal Slug, you'll definitely feel at home with GunForce II.

  Mad Crasher - Game of the Month

I bet you've never heard of this one - this month we're taking a glance at SNK's early isometric racing shooter Mad Crasher from 1984. Released in arcades only, it followed in the footsteps of the back then popular Zaxxon and stood out by its isometric graphics and its simplistic but fast gameplay.



As always, share you thoughts and laughs in the traditional discussion thread and treat yourself for a few rounds with this game. The simple and easy to learn gameplay is perfectly suited for a High Score Challenge and you're absolutely encouraged to particpate on one. How about that?

  Artbook release: NEOGEO: A VISUAL HISTORY

Bitmap Books from Great Britan have recently released the long awaited and officially licensed artbook NEOGEO: A VISUAL HISTORY. This 400 pages strong coffee table book covers tons of photos, screenshots, pixel artwork, sketches and even interviews with former SNK staff revolving the Neo Geo and its many variants and games.



You can get the book via the official website for GBP 30 (around USD 40). The previously announced Collector's and Mega Editions of the book were pre-order only and are already sold out.

Check out our related thread to tell us about your impressions, post pictures or simply participate in our discussions:

  Metal Slug 7 / XX - Game of the Month

Everyone undoubtedly loves Metal Slug and its many installments (well, maybe not so much Metal Slug 3D), but how about the NDS and PSP exclusives Metal Slug 7 and Metal Slug XX? This month we're taking a closer look at both versions and how well they compare to their Neo Geo counterparts. It's also worth mentioning that to this day this is the last genuine Metal Slug Run n' Gun game that still makes use of the sprites from the original Metal Slug from 1995.



In case you're a NDS or PSP owner, what are your experiences with these games? Or if you aren't into handhelds, maybe you even checked out the Xbox Live Arcade version? Please tell us so in this month's GOTM thread.

Maybe someone's fancy a High Score Challenge for this one? If so, send Merlin or Priest a PM to get one up and running.

  Biomotor Unitron - Game of the Month

We're back on the Neo Geo Pocket Color, this time with a rather unique RPG by Yumekobo, the masterminds behind Blazing Star. Biomotor Unitron took many notes from other games and series such as Pokemon, Dragon Quest or even Evangelion and delivered a solid title for SNK's handheld.



Even though Biomotor Unitron earned quite solid critics, it kinda fell into oblivion as SNK went bust one year later in 2000. The sequel was not even released outside of Japan.

Have you already played this one? Share your experiences with us and meet us at the monthly GOTM thread!

The Neo Geo is 100% the best 16 bit system! Just felt the need to reaffirm my love for the system.
