A miniature arcade machine you can fit in your hands.


After teasing it several days ago, SNK has finally pulled the veil off of its latest creation: the Neo Geo Mini.

As indicated previously, the Neo Geo Mini is one of the products developed by SNK in order to celebrate its 40-year anniversary (the other being the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection for the Nintendo Switch); and keeping in the spirit of that anniversary, the NGM is a blast from the past, featuring the same general appearance as the Neo Geo arcade cabinets of old but smaller.

Specifically, the Neo Geo Mini is 135 mm × 108 mm x 162 mm, weighs about 600 grams and comes with a 3.5-inch liquid crystal display, meaning that you can easily carry it around and play on the go. Furthermore, it comes in two color variants that can be seen below: red, white and blue for Japan, while everyone else gets blue, white and black.

Of course, just because this machine was designed to celebrate the past, doesn’t mean that it’s firmly rooted in it. In fact, it has a few features that will make it feel right at home along with the rest of your consoles. Namely, an HDMI port and two external controller ports — allowing it to connect to your tv and support local multiplayer — along with a headphone jack.

As for the games you can play, the press release states the Neo Geo Mini will include 40 games from the Neo Geo era; and based on the pictures shown within, they’re likely to include Metal SlugMetal Slug IIReal Bout Fatal Fury, Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers, The King of Fighters ’97, The King of Fighters ’98, Samurai Shodown II, and Samurai Shodown V Special.

Unfortunately, other details such as pricing and a release date are still unknown, but SNK has been quite busy this year, so hopefully we can expect more info in the coming months.
