Neo Geo Pocket Color - Buy & Sell at CeX

We now buy and sell SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color handhelds and games! How cool is that?

If you're looking to get into retro gaming handhelds, the Pocket Color is a great place to start. Released in 1999, the 16-bit colour screened SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color or NGPC to some fans, was the follow up the mono screened SNK Neo Geo Pocket that was never officially released in the UK.

While technically advanced for the time, the Neo Geo Pocket Color struggled against fierce competition from Nintendo and their popular Pokemon series. SNK didn't have the resources for a prolonged battle and sadly the Neo Geo Pocket Color was discontinued from Western markets in 2000. Some put this down to the lack of games from 3rd party publishers. Sega was the only large 3rd publisher to support the Neo Geo Pocket Color with the release of Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure, which IGN rated 10 out of 10.

SNK's arcade heritage was clear with Pocket Color versions of  Metal Slug, King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, Neo Turf Masters and Neo Geo Cup '98 Color. Other popular titles include Puzzle Bobble, Cool Boarders and Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams.
