    So after having seen conflicting reports about the Neo-Geo games not running multiplayer with 2 joycons here is my discovery, sorry if this is common knowledge but the process is rather obtuse.

    If you select 'controlers' on the main switch menu then 'change Grip/order' and pair the joycons separate you can then start the Neo-Geo game and play it multiplayer.

    It seems to start a separate instance of the game from playing with both joycons together and doesn't seem to save any settings. If anybody knows how to save your game options in multiplayer please let me know.

    I hope they add a shortcut to this on the long home button press menu.

    Yeah it's a bit of a crap way of syncing controls, I'm thinking we should get some qol adjustments to the process in the future.

    Think Virtual Console in the eshop, I'm not sure what they're labelling them as, arcade or something but they're overpriced neo-geo ports essentially, good time fillers till something comes out though, we are doing no continues 50 lives runs on metal slug 3 atm.

    Not quite emulation, but ports, they had an update last night that fixes color/sound issues, apparently near perfect now.

    Oh so they are some sort of eShop Games, ported from Neo-Geo, but not ROMs being ran through the Virtual Console then.
    Weird that they went that way, but it's something I guess.

    Nah it's okay.
    It's just that hearing Neo-Geo on the Switch kind of threw me off for a bit.
    Nothing to disappoint about :P
    We still have VC to wait for, it's Nintendo's way of disappointing people but I am already familiar to it xD
