NeoGeo X Classics: Volume 1, available at retail in North America this April, will include three titles packed onto one game card: run-and-gunners Metal Slug 2, Sengoku and Top Hunter. Volume 1 will also include a system update for the NeoGeo, with distributor Tommo promising more details on its contents at a later date.

Four more volumes are planned for future release:

  • Art of Fighting 3
  • Blazing Star
  • Breakers Revenge
  • Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves
  • Kizuna Encounter
  • The King of Fighers '96
  • The Last Blade 2
  • Samurai Shodown 3
  • Savage Reign
  • Shock Troopers
  • Super Sidekicks 3 — The Next Glory
  • World Heroes Jet

All volumes will include the NeoGeo's "Rocket" charging and high-speed transfer cable. A traveling case is also in the works for the handheld, with current plans pinpointing an April release.

The NeoGeo X handheld, launched last December, runs games originally published for the Neo Geo AES and MVS arcade console and cabinet released in the 1990s. The devices comes with 20 pre-installed titles, including Fatal Fury and the original Metal Slug.
