News – Celebrate Neo Geo’s 25th Anniversary With Humble Bundle


As stated earlier, SNK and Humble have recently added more games, bringing the total now up to an impressive 25.  Those added include Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The NewcomersKing of Fighters 2002Blazing Star, and Ironclad.  However, you’ll need to be quick if you haven’t already grabbed this excellent bundle, as it’s only available for another 5 days.

It’s been 25 years since the Neo Geo and its plethora of classic titles first hit the arcades.  Sadly, the arcades may now be a thing of the past in the West, but these SNK classics live on.  What’s more, as we recently reported, the classic Japanese developer has announced that it will be returning its focus back onto what it does best, developing the games we all know and love.

So, what better way to celebrate all of this retro SNK goodness, than with a gaming bundle filled with 21 of these legendary titles.  Thanks to the team over at SNK Playmore alongside Humble Bundle, there’s now an easy way you can grab most of these classics.  Additionally, in typical Humble Bundle fashion, every purchase will also help raise money for some great causes at the same time.  From Terry Bogard in Final Fight and Garou, to Metal Slug, the latest Humble Bundle has more than enough to keep any child of the 80s and 90s entertained for the whole festive season and beyond.

Humble Neo Geo Bundle

Humble Bundle allows customers to pay whatever they want for the basic tier of each bundle, and here is no different.  For a payment of anything over 1 cent, gamers will gain access to 8 of SNK’s classic titles, including the likes of Fatal Fury Special and Metal Slug 2.  Alternatively, up this to the fluctuating average amount paid, and you’ll be given access to another eight games, alongside the Neo Geo 25th Anniversary Soundtrack MP3s.  Finally, pay $10 or more and you’ll be granted the final tier, and with it some of SNK’s very best, such as Garou: Mark of the Wolves and Metal Slug X.

There is also one additional tier this time around.  This special $40 level is certainly one for the most hardcore of SNK fans, and includes the pretty cool NEOGEO 25th Anniversary Ltd. Ed. METAL SLUG SV-001 T-Shirt.  As always, those who purchase this bundle can decide how their payment is divided up between SNK Playmore, charity, and Humble Bundle themselves.

Most of the games in this bundle are delivered DRM free, and these DRM free titles are even compatible MAME.  Additionally, all of these games will work on any Firefox or Chrome Web browser in HTML5, via the emulator built into Humble’s site.  Gamers are recommended to have at least an i3 processor and 4GB of RAM, though a demo is available for all of the DRM free titles.

This bundle will only be available for the next two weeks, and in typical Humble fashion, more games will be added soon for anyone who beats the average.  Never fear though, as we here at Rings & Coins will be sure to keep you updated on which games these are.

So, if you’re a fan of the classic fighting titles of SNK, then “Buster Wolf” your way over to Humble Bundle, help raise some money for charity, support the devs, and grab a bargain all at the same time.  What better way is their to spend some time over the festive season?
