Captain Barrel – New Neo Geo Game

Pre-Orders are now open on a brand new game for the Neo Geo AES and MVS called Captain Barrel.  The game looks to be an “action puzzler”, where each level is contained in a single room.  Pre-order discount prices range from about $300 to $400 depending on which version you choose and they’re due to ship in 2024.  More info and a demo of the intro and first level can be found below:

First, note that the pre-order discount price is listed as only valid for the month of June – After they, they’ll go back up to the regular prices.  Also, the game will eventually be released on the Sega Dreamcast, PlayStation Portable and PC as well.  I think Neo Geo collectors will love to have another cartridge in their collection, however if you prefer those other platforms, you might want to wait.  Here’s a full list of features, copied from the main page, however I suggest checking out their “our games” page for more info.
