Pix'n Love's NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol.2 is Loaded with Goodies

This yellow box of fun slipped under our radar, it seems. Pix'n Love Games recently announced that they'll be offering a special physical edition of NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2. The contents are wholly different from Limited Run's collector's edition. Check it out:

  • Physical copy of NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 2
  • A numbered certificate of authenticity for 1000 copies
  • A physical card game based on SNK vs Capcom: Card Fighters Clash
  • 10 lithographs
  • An exclusive game board
  • An official NeoGeo Pocket Color reproduction box to store the game cartridge. 
  • 10 reproduced NGPC game covers.

Pretty nifty, right? If you're a Card Fighters Clash fan, you might want to consider the Pix'n Love edition over Limited Run Games. Plus, you can't go wrong with the Rockman Battle & Fighters reproduction cover art. It'll look great on your shelf.

The Pix'n Love edition is currently available to pre-order here. It's priced at 99,90 €, which is the equivilent to roughly $121.09

Rockman X DiVE Says Goodbye to 2022 with DiVE Armor RiCO

Mega Man Composer Manami Matsumae Featured in 'Lock On' Journal

There’s no doubt that Mega Man helped define the 8-bit generation, and this iconic status is due in part to games' soundtracks. Mohammed Taher, Director of Brave Wave Music, sat down with Manami Matsumae, the composer of Mega Man 1’s soundtrack, to revisit those chiptune classics in the latest issue of Lock On. 

In addition to Matsumae's interview, Lock On Volume 005 also includes this really great piece by Nuri Durr (above). The aim was to capture the nostalgia of the NES, and reinvigorate readers' fondness for the era. I mean, just look at those crazy kids. Sitting a little too close to the TV and all. Memories.

Lock On Volume 005 is currently available to pre-order from Lost in Cult. You can find the softcover edition here and the limited, premium hardcover edition here.
