Four Arcade Archives titles were delisted worldwide no later than the end of August 2020. Super Sidekicks 2 and 3, The Ultimate 11, and Neo Geo Cup ’98 were potentially delisted due to references to Taiwan and the Republic of China (ROC). After an update to the Arcade Archives version of Baseball Stars 2, also in late August, players noted alterations to the Taiwan-based teams in the game. Perhaps the work to update these four titles was too extensive, or SNK parent company Leyou simply chose to pull them from sale after the prompt coverage of Baseball Stars 2. As of late October 2020 neither Hamster, SNK, or Leyou have addressed the delistings or alterations.

About the Game

Battle for the championship in the peak sports event held once every four years. This version introduces the actual rules as well as fouls in order to provide exciting and thrilling soccer matches. Another highlight is the variety of enhanced rendering.

The “ACA NEOGEO” series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces. Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores. Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games. *This title is based off the MVS (NEOGEO for arcades) version. There may be differences between this version and the versions for the home NEOGEO console and other home consoles.
