ACA NeoGeo (Switch): Top 20 of the most popular titles (Japan)

The ACA NeoGeo series is a sub-series of the Arcade Archive series, that sees classics from the NeoGeo re-released on digital storefronts (such as the Nintendo eShop). On Nintendo Swich, the series debuted on March 3rd, and since then, Hamster has released at least one title a week.

There’s now over 20 titles available on the console, and Nintendo thought it would be interesting to see which ones were the most popular. That’s why they shared a Top 20 of the most popular ACA NeoGeo titles today, that goes from March 3rd to July (exact end date isn’t specified). Naturally, no exact sales data is provided.

Here’s the Top 20 of the most popular ACA NeoGeo titles on Nintendo Switch:

  1. Metal Slug 3 (03.3.2017)
