First Neo Geo Titles Dated for Wii Virtual Console in Japan

By Carlos Bergfeld, Aug 31, 2007 1:15pm PDT Games released on the Neo Geo Advanced Entertainment System will join the Wii Virtual Console lineup in Japan starting September 11, SNK Playmore announced today. Fatal Fury will be the first title available for Japanese Wii gamers on September 11, with World Heroes and Magician Lord following at a later September date.

All three titles will cost 900 Wii Points ($9). SNK Playmore USA president Ben Herman told Gamasutra earlier this year that the Neo Geo titles would be coming to gamers stateside. The 900 Wii Point price for Japanese gamers correlates with the price Herman said the titles would cost in the U.S., "just a little above" the 800 Wii Point ($8) price of Super Nintendo games.

The Neo Geo AES home console will be the sixth console supported on the Wii Virtual Console, alongside the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, and NEC TurboGrafx-16.

  • Anybody know when we're going to see the Samurai Shodown collection on the PS2 or if its coming out here in the US? I have a feeling it will since the PS2 is Sony's old system and they aren't doing the 2d restriction anymore (hence the number of SNK/NeoGeo releases on it...AoF:Anthology, FatalFuryBattleArchives, etc). I know they're doing a Samurai Shodown Collection, a World Heroes collection, and a KoF collection in given the current situation it seems we might see those here (and I'm still hoping they might actually include SSV:Special on the Samurai Shodown Collection disc...right now the line-up is supposed to be SS1, SS2, SS3, SS4, SSV, and SS:Tenka...though it'd be great if they even did SS:Tenka with blood and fatalities (which they cut after an incident in Japan...same reason SSV didn't have the fatalities it was going to)).
