Neo Geo Mini Officially Announced, Including 40 Titles

SNK promises to reveal more details in the future, including the Neo Geo Mini's release date and official title lineup. After the success of the NES and SNES Classics for Nintendo, it's not really much of a surprise that the Mini Neo Geo will soon be gracing us with its presence.

The latest console to get miniaturized is the Neo Geo, a cartridge-based arcade system by SNK released in 1990.

And like seemingly every other big gaming brand from back in the day, it's having a mid-life crisis that involves releasing a miniature console. It's created to be played in your hands, but can also be hooked up to a TV or monitor via HDMI cable. The display is 3.5 inches and it comes pre-loaded with 40 NeoGeo classic titles. Just as we thought, it is a compact retro arcade console.

"We hope you look forward to enjoying the NEOGEO mini along with its legendary and popular NEOGEO titles".

SNK will sell two versions of the Neo Geo Mini: a red, white, and blue version for Japan, then a blue, white and black for North America plus other regions. If his source is correct, the NeoGeo mini will have plenty of fighting games, including ones from the "King of Fighters," "Samurai Shodown", and "Fatal Fury" franchises. Expect at least one version of Metal Slug, one Art of fighting, and at least one King of Fighters game.

The Neo Geo Mini will no doubt allow for more gamers to be able to experience the console since most hadn't before. The Japanese version will sport the bright orange classic of the NeoGeo MVS cabinets whereas the global release will be black, blue, and white.
