SNK has brought a pair of obscure Mega Man games to Switch

SNK has brought a pair of obscure Mega Man games to Switch ...

Capcom and SNK are apparently in a race to see who can first release all of their classic games on modern platforms. Which has resulted in some excellent stuff, even if it occasionally gets a bit funny.

SNK announced that Rockman Battle & Fighters, a 2000 Neo-Geo Pocket Color game that was previously known as Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man: The Power Fighters, had been scaled down to fit the portable system. Its a recreation of two mid-90s Capcom arcade games (Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters), but it was too late to make an impact on SNK's Game Boy campaign.

Capcom has recently released the arcade versions of Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters for Switch as part of its Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium collection. Conveniently, each of those costs about $4 and the SNKs duo costs about $8.

Whether youre looking to play two obscure Mega Man arcade games, or the portable versions of those two in Japanese that have been scaled down to the Neo Geo Pocket Color screen (and then back up to the Switch screen) all of which are fantastic, and if you can keep track of them Capcom and SNK have you covered.
