Could Final Fantasy 4-6 have worked on the Neo Geo back in the 90’s?

Its quite interesting that the Neo Geo does not get talked about as much in this day and age as it should.  When it comes down to game consoles that produced amazing high quality 2D gameplay the Neo Geo was one of the top systems of the 90’s.  However, when it comes down to 2D games for the Neo Geo the fighting titles such as the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series generally stand out more. While Square was mainly making games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System there was no doubt that the Neo Geo had superior 2D graphics and quality overall.  However, the Neo Geo was not as popular as the Super Nintendo or even the Sega Genesis was in North America back in the early 90’s.

Also, the Neo Geo was simply to expensive following its release since it was priced at $649 when it first came out back in 1990.  When it came down to role playing genre of gaming the Super Nintendo Entertainment System which was also released n 1990 for a reasonable price of $199  it was probably better for Final Fantasy 4-6 in the long run.  When Final Fantasy I-III was released on the NES between 1987-1990 they were considered to be popular RPG titles for the 8 bit console and having 4-6 on the SNES made more sense than being on the Sega Genesis or the Neo Geo.
