King of Fighters '98, Metal Slug 3 and More Neo Geo Games Coming To Switch

Hamster Corp is bring those arcade classics to Nintendo's hybrid platform.

We already knew that The Arcade Archive collection from Japanese publisher Hamster Corp was bringing SNK Neo Geo games to the Nintendo Switch. The only problem was we didn't know which Neo Geo titles would be making the transition to the new platform.

According to Famitsu, the initial line-up of games includes The King of Fighters '98, WakuWaku 7, ShockTroopers, World Heroes Perfect, and Metal Slug 3. The given price is 823 yen ($7.21), which will likely come out to $7.99 on our shores. Given the Arcade Archive releases on PlayStation 4, that's the per game price, not for the entire collection.

On the PlayStation 4 releases, players can choose to play the games in their original Japanese or localized English versions. The ACA releases also include a save state and screen filters to add scan lines and mimic CRT televisions. The Switch releases will have similar options.

The Japanese release of the Arcade Archives collection will be coming to Switch in March. Nintendo of America's official site lists the North America release as "TBD".
