    It's a cool idea, but it's purely for the shelf queen collectards.

    Wanna play on original hardware? NeoSD
    Want to get goosebumps as you insert a piece of plastic into a console? NeoSD
    Want flashy things on your shelf to impress "girls"? These shitty repros.

    Would it affect the way a game played/functioned over an original? Come to think of it, how would compatibility be like with unibios?

    I honestly thought this was a troll thread at first. This is awesome. And I imagine if things go well we would see further releases.

    With this and the new Samurai Spirits, its like if SNK is showing signs of life...I'm excited to see where things go.

    I don't know how I feel about this. I could see this being a disaster with cheap shitty boards printed from China.

    meh.

    If it happens I will but MOTW. What I find interesting is why they wouldnt go the cheaper road and re press Cds. I know the CD system isn't the go to, but why not. Maybe continue where the left off?

    I am a MVS guy, seeing this makes me consider getting an AES for shits and giggles, I just wish they were planning on making more than 6 carts. It all boils down to what games they do plan on releasing however.

    If they were to release Samurai V Special, you know all kinds of shit will hit the fan.(I have a feeling this will happen)

    The one thing to keep in mind is that Retrobit stuff generally is a (very) far cry in quality from original releases, the plastic is usually not as dense, and their circuit boards are very minimalistic making them feel cheap and flimsy. Its possible that this might not be the case with these but its certainly something you need to keep in mind before you are ready to clunk down 2 hundos of your well earned cheddar.

    I'm more interested in knowing if their pcb design choices deviate from the model of the 120/161 in 1 carts or the atomikwave/nci releases. If they don't, you're in a for a real treat.

    I'm pretty sure they will deviate from this kof 97 http://www.mvs-scans.com/images/e/e1...2_b1_front.jpg

    And that all the stuff they will make has already been done by Atomikwave in a far better quality, will be done again by me for some other titles, and that they were done with some real love for the community behind and not with the sole objective to fill up their paypal accounts.

    It should be identical. There's parallel flash now that responds quicker than any of those old mask ROMs.

    Look at this guy, for example:
    https://www.digikey.com/product-deta...020-ND/3862817

    That's a 128MByte chip that responds to random accesses in 100ns. Granted, it needs level-shifters for a 5v system, but TI says their 74LVC series can do that in 5ns or so. Google tells me the Neo-Geo C ROMs need to respond in 200ns.

    So it should be trivial to have enough memory and meet all the original timing requirements, meaning the cartridge would be functionally identical.

    yeah, I mean these are just official repros … which is fine if it's what the people want. I could just see some dingus trying to sell it for the OG price in the future. Fuck, this is why I got out of the game.

    I had the same thoughts. I mean $200 sounds nice to the consumer but what’s inside? If it’s chinese made, probably a PCB with those black epoxy blobs.

    Watch this end up like that new SNES Cartridge release of Double dragon that doesn't even run on real hardware. I'm cautiously optimistic, but this could go wrong on so, SO many levels. subscribing to this thread.

    Retrobit didn’t do the Street Fighter release, that was Iam8Bit.

    I did just get their Holy Diver release for the NES which was really well done. Well made, well packaged. They didn’t translate it but they did add a cheat code. Odd since I have a copy on a multicart and it’s he translated rom lol.

    This leaked on Discord today:



    Apparently due to overwhelming demand of people wanting to play Genesis games on the Neo Geo, SNK decided to cave and license these games from Sega.

    I get the sneaking suspicion that is just a hoax conducted by none other than the Immortal John Hancock and Metal Jesus - we fucked with the wrong guys!!!

    Metal Slug
    Garou MOTW
    Samurai Sprits 5 Special (or whatever the fuck the last one is called)
    Blazing Star
    KOF ‘98 (or maybe ‘02)
    Neoturfmasters

    Well like many of you said, this might be bullshit, I think I found the original image that was used before the Retrobit logo was photoshopped onto it
