NEO GEO Mini, a world of NOSTALGIA

The beeps and boops fill the the room with loud echos of button smashing as children gathered at the local arcade to play the latest video game. However, gone are the days where you have to leave your house to try the newest toy, but SNK isn’t letting the arcade console die off. In honor of SNK’s 40th anniversary, the company announced a celebratory console called the Neo Geo Mini, a miniature version of the MVS arcade cabinet that included 40 Neo Geo classics.

SNK refrained from announcing a price point and release date for the new console. According to nintendolife.com, fans can expect the console to include 40 games including The King of Fighters series (’95, ’97, ’98, ’00,’02), Fatal Fury series, Samurai Showdown and Football Frenzy, but there is no otherwise confirmed material on a list of game titles.

The mini will include a 3.5-inch screen to make it the perfect fit for the palm of your hand with dimensions of 5.25 inches wide by 4.25 inches deep by 6.25 inches tall. The console will weigh in at 1.3 pounds and will include a HDMI, headphone and two external controller ports. The HDMI port will allow users to chose between playing on the 3.5-inch display or transfer the image onto your TV.

Despite the modifications to the cabinet’s size, SNK stayed loyal to the arcade format. The control panel will feature the classic joystick and ABCD button layout. The company did have to stack the buttons rather than have them aligned due to the size restrictions of the console. The Neo Geo Mini will be released in two versions — one for Japan and an international one that will be released every where else.
