In a recent interview at Siliconera, SNK Director of Business Management Adam Laatz spoke about how SNK Gals’ Fighters came to Switch. In addition, Laatz shares the possibility of more Neo Geo Pocket Color games coming to the platform. Here are the excerpts from that interview:
Along with the developers of these ports over at Code Mystics based in Vancouver, we had discussed bringing NEOGEO Pocket Color (NGPC) content to modern platforms numerous times in the past. Unfortunately that never came to fruition for various reasons…
However, is it largely thanks to the combination of Nintendo’s “hybrid” console & portable system being a perfect fit for these retro releases, and the strong recommendation and support from a friend at Nintendo who is based here in Tokyo that we were able to make this happen.
We can definitely say that as long as there is interest from SNK fans and retro-gamers, SNK is confident and committed to bringing more NGPC content (ports to Nintendo Switch) if the demand is there! Pleased stay tuned for upcoming announcements.
Lastly, SNK Gals’ Fighters is out now for Switch. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
