Indie Fighter Pocket Rumble headed to the Neo Geo Pocket Color

Chi-powered antler schoolboy fighting game goes for round two

Pocket Rumble is a tribute to the Neo Geo Pocket Color era of portable fighting games, currently planned for release on Steam. It features cameos from Divekick, Nidhogg, JoyLancer, Lethal League, Aces Wild, Bleed, I Wanna Be The Guy, Dust, and more. This is Pocket Rumble‘s second attempt at Kickstarter crowd funding and it’s doing a lot better than in had the first time around, but it’s still not quite there yet. 

Regardless of what happens with the campaign, I hope that the game eventually makes it to the Neo Geo Pocket Color as currently planned. I’m not quite sure how that’s even possible though. Pocket Rumble is packed with a lot more frames of animation than any of the officially licensed Neo Geo Pocket Color games of old. We’ve got the creators of Pocket Rumble scheduled to appear on Sup Holmes on Dec. 7th, so maybe we’ll find out then.
