SNK announced that the Mini Neo Geo will come pre-loaded with 40 classic games and will come in two versions, a Japanese one for Asia and an International version for North America, Europe and the rest of the world.
The unit will feature a 3.5-inch LCD screen and has an HDMI port for those who want to experience their nostalgia on a much bigger screen (and, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to?). For those competitive gamers, Mini Neo Geo will also have two external controller ports and, for those times you don’t want to be distracted by the outside world, it also sports a headphone jack.
Currently, SNK has not revealed any pricing or even a release date, but let’s hope its sooner rather than later. First released back in 1990 the Neo Geo the console spawned various critically acclaimed and much-loved series, such as Metal Slug and King of Fighters, with most of these being excellent 2D fighters.
What games would you see pre-loaded on the unit? Personally, we are hoping for Metal Slug I & II, King of Fighters ’79, Mortal Kombat, Moonwalker and Samurai Shodown.
