The ongoing revival of Neo Geo Pocket Color titles is unexpected but not unwelcome. Today, SNK announced that Fatal Fury: First Contact is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $7.99. The game originally released in 1999 and was based upon Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 from the arcades, and now you can get the bite-sized experience again on a modern platform.
SNK offers the following additional details:
Features in FATAL FURY: FIRST CONTACT include a POTENTIAL POWER comeback mechanic that allows players to unleash an ultra-lethal special move at the brink of death and opportunities to play as the DOMINATED MIND protagonist and REAL BOUT FATAL FURY 2 hidden boss, Alfred. The Nintendo Switch™’s Tabletop and Handheld Modes are a match made in Fatal Fury heaven as they go hand-in-hand with the game’s single-lane fighting system beautifully.
In addition to the Fatal Fury: First Contact trailer, SNK has also shared a special video message from SNK Producer Yasuyuki Oda discussing features of First Contact and revealing when new information will come for The King of Fighters XV:
Among other SNK games, Neo Geo Pocket Color’s SNK Gals’ Fighters is also available on Nintendo Switch. Are you planning to bring in Christmas with fists flying?
