NeoGeo Battle Coliseum (NGBC) Thread


NeoGeo Battle Coliseum? what the heck is that?

NeoGeo Battle Coliseum is a cross-over 2-on-2 fighting game by SNKPlaymore that consists of 39 playable characters (41 if you count the last boss Goodman, and the cpu only Shishioh/Red King Lion), but don’t take the word “cross-over” lightly because this game is literally a bonafide mash-up with characters spanning from well known SNK universe’s like “The King of Fighters” and “Samurai Showdown” to ADK series you never heard of such as “Aggressors of Dark Kombat” and “World Heroes”

It’s available for PS2, and Xbox 360 for 800 MS points on the Marketplace (as of June 9, 2010)

NGBC Kyo loop/ Glitch? How do I do it?

You’re not the only one still playing it. I still play it and I tell people there’s more to SNK than KOF…so I play nearly everything SNK.


actually i picked it up for just 1? at my local blockbuster some days ago…i was really looking forward to this game but never found a good deal… eventually i found a used copy at the blockcuster and bought it… i have to say that the game is pretty fun to play with, i’m not in the mood to improve my game/skills but it has a really interesting gameplay and speed… i did two video sets last weeks… really nothing special…just some ,very, casuals games:

we’re pretty bad but wth xD



Wut dis game bout? Nevar heard of it…


Oh yeah, I just figured I’d make this thread because just about every game has one (Garou, RBF2, WHP, hell even Karnov’s Revenge)…


Love this game. I really wish there was a machine around here, though. Any spots to play this in NorCal?

I should start playing more regardless. I always wanted to figure out how to play a non-scrubby Genjuro.


Me and Tone! are in NorCal and we still play it. Unfortunately i dont think theres an NGBC in Norcal…or in California for that matter so if youre lookin for comp best bet is console casual throwdowns


There is an NGBC thread, its just buried in FGD…theres quite a few because I know I made them myself…maybe they should just turn this section from just KOF to SNK in general? :wonder:

SoulStar- We may have a NGBC tournament (free) at Raging Storm El Paso SO PRACTICE UP!!! :nunchuck:


That’s what I thought too, they’ll just have to move those other SNK related game threads over here as well, it’d probably liven up the subforum and we’d get more traffic here as well, then I wouldn’t have to trudge through FGD to find that damn WHP thread lol…

Think you can drop Mr. Wizard a line about it?


It’s a good game. I think it’s popularity will pick up once Naomi/Atomiswave emulation is 100%.


I could try to do that and see what his response is.


Haven’t played NGBC in a while but I’ll definitely run some this game at the next time I head out to drop by my old college gaming club.


O.o NGBC l freaken miss that game l been aking to play l have on ps2 but no play its down here l guess when even they hold a torney all go down and enter it.


Dunno about that.

But even if it true, pretty sad that it would have to rely on emulation to promote popularity. Neither of the ports of NGBC were perfect (although Shiki will brow beat me to preach Jap version is better :wonder:) but still people had plenty of chance to play it.

Was even $20.00 value tag when it was ported to North America.


If me and MightyMar meet up tomorrow I can assure you we will play NGBC. Now while we are at it posting up old NGBC vids I’ll post up an two favorites of mine-



This game is actually quite good and the controls and movement and whatnot all feel very smooth and fluid. Wide variety of characters and playstyles to choose from. The presentation of everything is good too. The only thing I don’t like about the game is guard cancel front step, which imho is broken and ruins a lot of the possible offensive pressure. It’s just too easy to do and combo out of. I really like the attack cancel roll though, it’s a lot more versatile than it was in KoF where it was rarely used.

Soh85’s channel on youtube has decent amount of match vids with most characters appearing at least once.


I didn’t think it was that bad here. At least compared to how it was a bit more abusable in SvC…


Agreed, it was much much worse in SvC. Sure it could be toned down some more in NGBC, but its much more abusable in SVC.


Hey DG see if u can include all the previous NGBC threads in here, there was some awesome info in those threads. Anyhow, this game from what I can remember is pretty awesome. I didn’t really have the chance to play it competitivly but from the high level matches I’ve see of it during it’s peak popularity it looked great. In a lot of ways it reminds me of a SF game, sort of like a SNK spin on a capcom game. It’s very unfortunate the game had such a short span of popularity though…this game is really great.
