King of Fighters R-2, Samurai Shodown!2 Coming to Switch This Summer

NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection grows bigger with two more incredibly adorable and cute games, scheduled to launch digitally this summer.

SNK at New Game+ Expo announced King of Fighters R-2 and Samurai Shodown!2 are the two new games joining the NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection on Nintendo Switch.

Here are some quick details from the press release on both games:

King of Fighters R-2 includes 23 playable characters, with vivid and cute animations. You can also customize your favorite fighter with the Making Mode. (Not available during DC data transfer); Lastly, you can also play versus mode with friends. The game will be $7.99.

Meanwhile, in Samurai Shodown!2  each playable character has two playstyles, either Slash or Burst, with different moves. You can also unlock special cards to power up your characters. Lastly, you can play versus mode with friends.

Important note: Samurai Shodown!2 was technically already available via a preorder bonus for the Switch version of Samurai Shodown 2019. Now you’ll be able to buy it separately for $7.99. Short gameplay videos have been published by SNK: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

SNK Gals’ Fighters is also already available on Switch, and was the first game of the NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection.

Samurai Shodown 2019 also added a For Honor character as DLC.

SNK is also working on KOF XV and a new Metal Slug console game. Hopefully we’ll see both games in action very soon. I’m personally also eagerly waiting for a new SNK Vs Capcom s well as a new SNK Vs Capcom Card Fighters Clash. Which I’ll proceed to not play anyway seeing how busy we are with 2020’s crazy events.
