    Xeno Crisis coming to Neo Geo

    Here's some very cool and surprising news.

    I did a quick search and didn't find this posted even though Razoola and Jeff certainly already knew about it.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be willing to double down and get this for the Genesis and Neo Geo; assuming it will be available for MVS.

    ---

    Mega Shock

    What about retro platforms we hear you cry? What was under that Xeno Crisis t-shirt in May’s update? Well we’re super excited to say we’ll be bringing Xeno Crisis to Neo Geo.

    The Neo Geo is no easy undertaking, but after having our arm twisted by HPMAN ;-) and after an initial test porting of Xeno Crisis (largely to check procedural level generation) back in May we’re happy the Neo Geo is within reach. The Neo Geo homebrew scene just like the Mega Drive scene has been amazing! As well as HPMAN a big thanks goes out to Jeff Kurtz, Razoola, Mike Wolak, Frazer Rhodes and Neil @8Bitplus. It wouldn’t have been possible to consider the Neo Geo without your help.

    Of course we’re not doing any further work on developing the Neo Geo version until we’ve finished with the Mega Drive and Dreamcast release. However we’ve got a survey for those that wish to express their interest in the Neo Geo version and to make sure they don’t miss out when we open pre-orders in the future - it will be a very limited edition release!

    Good on them and all for making a game, but it leaves a sour taste in my mouth when the game wasn't made for the Neo in mind.

    Porting a Genesis/Mega Drive game to the Neo is just silly and pointless, and honestly they will be in over their heads getting the right shells and PCBs to make for it imo.


    It's borderline sacrilege really. Genesis and SNES had their own versions of the same games, but the Neo was only for Neo games.

    Port it to Neo Geo so you can sell it at $500 a pop, instead of $50 a pop on Megadrive

    This is a good point. Why bother porting a game to the Neo Geo when the same version can be played on a Genesis. I doubt they'll be able to add anything to the Neo version to take advantage of the extra horse power; but if they can that would make it much more appealing.

    It's still great to see another developer putting out a new title for the Neo Geo.

    If they dont at bare minimum make use of the vastly improved color palette then this project is totally pointless. Straight genesis port to NEO•GEO = major fail...

    I wonder how they’ll utilize the soundchip...

    If they added extra features like levels, bosses, playable characters, etc that would be cool... if its on neo make the game worth the price tag which will certianly be astronomically high as usual..

    If they do a good job of it and it's not too expensive then yes I'd want to buy it in addition to the Genesis version.

    Will it have an arcade and home mode? Attract mode? All those things that should be baked into a proper Neo Geo game.

    I was hearing some interview on youtube and the guy who created the game doesn't want the Dreamcast version or any port to be superior to the Genesis Version. So it will most likely be a port of the Genesis version on the Neo with different controls of course.

    You'll probably have the option to download the Rom for the Neo like you could for the Genny and DC.

    How would you know? That would imply that you would actually have to play the games you horde.

    A CD port is the best way to go, IMO. Nothing about this game compels me to spend $500+.

    Awesome! I've suggested they consider a ROM release via Neo SD. Since I believe if they speak to Terra Onion there will be a way to "sign" a ROM file to the customers cart.

    This would make sense.

    I'd be all for this as well. It's hard to justify the price of a new cart when the game is also being released cheaper for other platforms.

    Yeah, certainly more affordable than 300 euros+ for a cart I expect! I am sure they would sell more copies that way since pretty much everyone with a Neo SD would want to buy it i'me sure.

    That's a clever idea. Good thinking for benefit of others.

    Imho the only economical choice would be the neo cd but, as its been seen in the past no one buys neocd games so its probably pointless. Collectards will pay $500 easily for a genesis game on the AES or MVS though. I kinda agree its pointless if they dont try to take any extra advantage of the neo though.

    I'd pony up for the cd version but I might as well just snab a Dreamcast version.

    I for one think that this is potentially a very interesting game, with this wise decision to enhance the neo geo version. Finally something non official which isn't some complete knock off.
    If the pound value falls further it'll be all the more attractive

    Just get the Connoisseur Disc version. It's like 1/6 the price.

    Purchased the Standard Edition for MVS (US). All the games that are now on my wish list are in the $250 range so, unless this game is super short or falls flat, it's not an unreasonable price point. Thanks all here for the heads up on this, without this group I would never know these games even exist until it's too late.

    Going with the cd version though the case is pretty unimpressive. The game however seems pretty cool.
