    Default Did the link cable to connect a... [NGPC to DC Link Cable]

    Neo Geo Pocket Color to a Dreamcast ever come out in America? I know it came out in Japan and had a few games that supported it, but despite it being advertised in America, I haven't encountered an American version of this link cable.

    Thanks.

    I remember seeing one at my local Software Etc. back then in with all the NGPC stuff.

    I had Capcom Vs. SNK and debated getting one at the time but never did.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Yep. It was released stateside.



    Sorry for the distance from the accessories, as I don't think I knew what I was thinking when I took the pic last year. If you're desperate for a better pic I can get one done tomorrow.

    Yeah, I would like a better pic if possible.

    Is there a list of US DC games that support the NGPC linkup?

    Check the NGPC rarity list, I believe I've got all the linked games listed there.

    Thanks, I was just about to ask that.

    I'm betting it's only like 2 or 3 games...

    It doesn't say anything in the rarity list, but I know one game for sure (SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium) uses the connectivity, but I'm not sure if you have to have both the Match of the Millennium and Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 to have the connection.

    Hmm check the NPGC entry for MotM, it mentions connecting to "Capcom vs SNK" (though I was just going by the manual, long story, but I did a lot of the section very quickly in the past!) but not the full title. I'll add that in. What isn't there for some reason is that MotM can also link to KoF Dream Match 99 as well on the DC. Gonna recheck that, make sure that's true (cos KoF R2 can supposedly also link to it). Most of the links were with Japanese games only though.

    Yeah, I figured that. Wikipedia says KoF Dream Match is coming out in America in 2009 on the PS2, though. Any confirmed US releases that use it?

    Also, the first thing I thought when I saw the link cable was, "Sweet, now I can hook my favorite failed systems TOGETHER."

    I rechecked my games and online to make sure. MotM can connect with both the DC version of the same game and KoF Dream Match 99. And KoF R2 on the NGPC does connect with KoF Dream Match 99 as well. Time to update the spreadsheet

    **totally off the DC/NGPC link tangent but since Mayhem is here**

    Mayhem, do you know of any knowledgeable US released NGPC collection people? I keep finding variants and well the N-G forums don't seem to care about them, and i'm not sure i'm really in the mood to post questions over there to not get any answers. I just found an accessory variant, to go along with system box variants when I was taking the above pics....


    **back on tangent**

    The US Connector's box is rare as hell. Cable, not so much, box, ZOMG.

    You wern't suppose to say that. I wanted to hear all kinds of names besides mine that were US NGPC whores.

    That means its Vectorman and myself.... What about D-Lite?
