The NEOGEO was the pinnacle of video gaming. An elite, exclusive console that didn’t just emulate the arcade experience – as so many 8 and 16-bit consoles tried to do – it was the arcade experience, pixel for pixel on your TV at home.

The name speaks for itself, but unfortunately, beyond this and what was shown - or the lack of it for that matter - there isn't much beyond that.
SUPERBEAT: XONiC is a wonderful rhythm based game that has been out on the Vita for a while, and is also available on the PS4 and Xbox One. Recently, the title came out for the Switch. While still just as awesome as ever, there is one hitch to getting off of Sony machines that changes the difficulty for some players, but your mileage may vary.
