Unknown Neo Geo Fighting Game Prototype (Gameplay)

Hey Folks,

I’m sure you’ve heard about the recent release of an unknown NeoGeo fighting prototype. While there are a lot of talks and debates about its origins on NeoGeo.com, I’ve been quite eager to try it…

Looking at the Mame development page it seems that the support for this game isn’t coming out until Mame 0.173 is released which is at the end of this month.

Patience isn’t a virtue I always possess so I decided, after a little research to compile my own version of Mame 🙂 And here is the result of an hour of compilation:

The game really is at the prototype/beta stage… There is no sound for starters, although I’m not sure whether it is an emulation issue or an issue the game itself. Some of the sprites are unfinished or missing and there is no single player mode so it’s really player vs dummy… But that’s expected with this sort of material.

It is quite incredible to see prototypes released into the wild albeit a NeoGeo one. Thank you mucho to NeoTurfMasta for releasing this piece of history.

Enjoy the video!

  1. “There is no sound for starters, although I’m not sure whether it is an emulation issue or an issue the game itself.” — sound roms were flash-based (it’s a prototype, so that’s expected to make the testing easier) and their contents was gone. Program and graphic roms were on normal chips, so their contents survived.
