Neo Geo coming to the Wii’s Virtual Console! More

The following report was from the good guys over at Codenamerevolution.

Nintendo has confirmed that in Japan, Neo Geo games will soon be available via the Wii’s virtual console in the coming months! The Neo Geo, a video game console from SNK, was one of the most expensive systems around that survived through a cult following with classics from King of Fighters to the Metal Slug series. It’s unknown how many Wii Points a Neo Geo title would cost, but even at 1200 Wii Points, it would easily be worth it as some games at the time cost around $200 and are selling for around $300 on eBay. With Neo Geo being supported, this proves to skeptics that the Wii’s architecture is in fact capable of handling Neo Geo emulation! It’s unknown as to when Neo Geo games will hit state-side and Europe.

Nintendo has also re-confirmed MSX games for the VC. The MSX was a system released in Japan that first brought the Metal Gear series.

My Thoughts:
"I'm speechless". Bring it to the states Nintendo. "Do it, do it, do it."
