Back on March 17, SNK Corporation launched NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 digitally for Nintendo Switch. But if you’re a mega fan, you’ll soon be able to grab a physical copy as well. Limited Run Games will provide standard and collector physical releases of NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1, with preorders beginning on April 22 at noon ET on its website. The collector’s edition will notably include NeoGeo Pocket-style packaging, a gatefold box, a two-sided poster, a SteelBook case, and even a retrospective book. Pricing for either version has yet to be revealed, but the digital version already costs $39.99, so expect to pony up some dough.
Ten games, a retrospective book, a two-sided poster, a SteelBook, and classic NEOGEO POCKET-style packaging come together in this awesome Collector's Edition! Grab yours for the Switch in its four-week pre-order starting April 22 at 12pm ET on https://t.co/5Lksol4sqo. pic.twitter.com/j0R5Qbtirs

Limited Run Games has conducted hundreds of physical releases at this point, and a collection like NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 is a nice pick to add to the list. The SNK title contains Metal Slug: 1st Mission (single-player only), Metal Slug: 2nd Mission (single-player only), Dark Arms: Beast Buster 1999, Big Tournament Golf, SNK Gals’ Fighters, Samurai Shodown! 2, King of Fighters R-2, The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny, Fatal Fury: First Contact, and SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium.
To me personally, the inclusion of a retrospective book in the collector’s edition sounds really cool. I’m a sucker for reading about and staring at pictures of games I already know and love.
