Yo-Yo Shuriken released on Neo-Geo (MVS, AES and CD)

Hi Everyone,
I'm pleased to share the release of my game Yo-Yo Shuriken on Neo-Geo MVS, AES and CD formats.
The game is a single-screen shooter with a unique twist:  you are using a single shuriken that can be thrown, then recalled so  you can hit enemies from the front and/or from behind. The game is even  more fun with a friend, with a cooperative-competitive 2 players mode.
You can get the game ROMS (MAME, ISO, NeoSD...) from here:
The game is also available in physical format for Neo-Geo CD from here (you'll receive the AES, MVS and CD ROMs for free when buying the physical release): https://cotegamers.com/shop/en/accueil/153-yoyo-shuriken.html
And of course, patrons of the "free games" tier will also receive this game for free over Patreon, as usual:
Last but not least, here is the game running on my trusty old AES:
I hope you'll enjoy it, and feel free to ask me any question! 🙂

Thanks for your support!

Regarding a MVS / AES release, this is my dream goal! However, considering the high prices of manufacturing the cart (around 200$ for the cart only), this is going to be a very costly project!

So if, after playing the game, you'll be interested in a MVS and / or AES copy, don't hesitate to mail me (see more details

Then I'll contact you again when (and if) I can make such a release a reality 🙂

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy (and a bit proud too ;)) to announce that my Neo-Geo  game Yo-Yo Shuriken is now available in physical release for the home Neo Geo AES console!

This physical release is made a reality thanks to Neo Geo specialist JapanGameOnline who is manufacturing, publishing and selling the game. This gorgeous release comes with a Snaplock box (hard case), a newly manufactured AES cartridge and a manual. It's available in both US style and Japanese style variants, so it should blend nicely in the rest of your AES collection! :)

Here is a photo of the US version, available from here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/235200451697



And here is the Japanese one, available from here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/325821703500


Due to the difficulties and high costs of manufacturing new complete-in-box AES games today, this will be a limited release. Each copy is numbered, and we'll make a maximum of 50 units in total (US and Japanese versions combined, we could only manufacture 50 cartridges).

And of course, if you buy the Neo-Geo AES physical release, you'll also receive the ROM versions for free (CD, AES and MVS)!

I hope you'll enjoy them!

Hi everyone!

I'm happy to announce that there is now a beautiful physical MVS release of the game available from Neo Geo expert JapanGameOnline. The release comes with a "MVS Snaplock box" (Hard case) with two-sided insert (one side US cover, the other side Japanese cover), a newly manufactured MVS cartridge and a manual.

You can get it from here:  http://www.japangameonline.com/index.php?id_product=717&controller=product&id_lang=1

The AES physical release is still available from JapanGameOnline, while the Neo-Geo CD physical release is still in pre-order from Cote Gamers, with a shipping date estimated to November 2023.
