The Neo-Geo Pocket Color, or NGPC, is a 16-bit color hand held game console designed by SNK, the makers of the Neo Geo home console and arcade machine. It was released on March 16, 1999 in Japan, August 6, 1999 in the United States, and October 1, 1999 in Europe.
The system enjoyed a greater success than any Game Boy competitor since Sega's Game Gear. However, it was hurt by several factors, such as a lack of communication with third-party developers, the success of the Game Boy Color, and anticipation of the Game Boy Advance.
- The Neo Geo Pocket Color runs on two AA batteries.
- The Neo Geo Pocket Color does not have a D-Pad, instead it has an analog stick.
- Sonic Pocket Adventure is the second official Sonic game to be released on a system not made by Sega. The first was Sonic Jam on the Game.com console.
