With such a small library of games available to the Neo Geo Pocket, the discovery of any unfinished or unreleased title for SNK's handheld is without a doubt a blessing. A sample cartridge of Magician Lord 2 for the NGPC has been found, showcasing what could have been the definitive side scroller for the fabled handheld.
The French website Gamekult is the lucky new owner of Magician Lord 2, one who has not been shy in displaying what the unfinished title by ADK would have offered. While the game currently features no audio (or at least the video doesn't) and it is largely unfinished, there is still plenty to marvel at - especially where the Neo Geo Pocket's capabilities are concerned and what this title can offer.
Unfortunately though, Gamekult has not made it clear whether or not it has preserved the game's code in a playable ROM file, nor have they stated they will be doing so for a public release. We'll be keeping our fingers crossed though that we'll be able to trial Magican Lord 2 on our Neo Geo Pocket sometime in the near future.
Until then, take a look at the game in action.
