NEO GEO Classic Magician Lord Coming To Nintendo Switch This Week

The Nintendo Switch has been receiving almost weekly updates of new Neo Geo games since the system launched back on March 3. It’s finally going to get one of the first Neo Geo games ever produced: Magician Lord. It’s held in high esteem by many who played the game extensively back in 1990.


MAGICIAN LORD is a side-scrolling action game released by SNK in 1990 in Japan.

This fantasy-action game was one of the launch titles for NEOGEO.

Control the magician Elta on a journey to save the world from Gal-Agiese, who came back to life once again.
