The King of Fighters ’99 has been listed by the Australian Classification Board, to be published by Nintendo. The classic fighter got a Virtual Console release in Japan in December, but has so far not been announced for a western re-release. It looks like that might change, although somewhat mysteriously, it’s listed for release on DVD rather than Wii U. Wouldn’t be the Board’s first clerical error, though.

Yesterday was the tenth birthday of the launch of Neo Geo Pocket Color in the US.
The handheld was a short-lived affair, being dumped from both US and European markets in 2000 when Aruze bought SNK.
It was finally snuffed out of existence in 2001, when it was discontinued in Japan.
According to Wikipedia, the machine did about 2 million units – with NGP sales included – and had a properly awesome Metal Slug version. That’s how we remember it, anyway: it was a long time ago.
