Hold up! The Nintendo Switch isn't retro, right? You're all thinking it, of course, but just hear us out for a moment.
This edition of Andro Dunos 2 – PixelHeart's amazing sequel to the Neo Geo classic – comes in special packaging which calls to mind the way Neo Geo MVS carts were distributed back in the '90s, right down to the printed instructions and brown cardboard box.
Inside, there is what appears to be a fully-functional MVS cart – but, in fact, this is merely a storage device for the game itself, which comes in standard Switch packaging (Andro Dunos 2 is also available on the 3DS, we should note). You also get the soundtrack on CD as well as a certificate of authenticity.
All in all, this limited edition package is very well put together and is the ideal way to own a game which feels like it could really exist on the original Neo Geo.
"That a small indie developer can bat alongside the likes of M2 and Platinum and, honestly, with greater overall success, is always uplifting," said Nintendo Life in its 9/10 review of the game. "Further inspiring is how — superficial IP notwithstanding — it manages to be so utterly exacting to arcade standards of the '90s, and at the same time feel breathtakingly original. Its craftsmanship, from weapon negotiations and experimentation, to the way each stage is cleverly built to aid a variety of approaches and play styles, is top notch. Andro Dunos II looks good, sounds great, and plays wonderfully."
Thanks to PixelHeart for sending us Andro Dunos 2 MVS edition.

Cool overall packaging. It reminds me I need to take a good look at the mechanics of this game to see if it's the kind of thing I'd enjoy as shooters go.
If you love all school shooters you'll love this. Just amazing from the gameplay, stunning pixel art, brilliant soundtrack. Certainly happy its in my collection.
After watching the first minutes I feel like I should play this game. It seems fun, challenging and the music is great. The atmosphere is very old school, which I love.
This is a really cool special edition.
