Dope list of games! I hope they add a bit to it, specifically hoping for Card Fighters games! It's insane how well those games still hold up.

I think it goes without saying, but you definitely need a third party controller to play these effectively. Kinda defeats playing these in handheld mode with a great deal of confidence.

Half of my daughters 4 different sets of joy cons have the nefarious drift problem going on. I took apart 1 and did the air puff thing but putting the rubber back on the knob has never been the same since.

These are handheld games afterall. Playing them on the big screen should be alright though.

I play them on an IPS modded NGPC and a NeoPocket GameDrive. I kind of doubt SNK intended that on release. ;)

I'm glad to see that NGPC is getting some love, but this collection is kind of pointless to me. The only reason to play the NGPC fighters was as a portable alternative to the MVS-based fighters. Now that the MVS-based stuff has a variety of portable solutions, I don't see the point of NGPC fighters anymore. To me, the games that really need to be ported are Cardfighters 1, Cardfighters 2, and the oddball stuff like Biomotor Unitron and Faselei that haven't really been redone elsewhere. I'd buy that collection. This collection, I'm skipping.
