New Neo Geo Console -- Details Revealed

When I was 10 years old I used to frequent an independent game store. In that store was a Neo Geo. The machine was insanely expensive and each game cost $250-300. To a kid it seemed like the most incredible piece of technology in the world. So when I heard that Neo Geo was releasing a new handheld, that 'I want' feeling always comes flooding back.

According to MCV, a new Neo Geo handheld is a complete done deal. Called the Neo Geo X, the console comes with 20 built in games, which are...

Art of Fighting Baseball Stars Cyber Lip Fatal Fury Fatal Fury Special Football Frenzy King of the Monsters Last Resort League Bowling Magician Lord Metal Slug Mutation Nation Nam 1975 Samurai Shodown Sengoku Super Sidekicks The King of Fighters ‘94 The Ultimate 11 Top Players Golf World Heroes

According to MCV it features an "SD card slot, a 3.5-inch LCD screen, A/V output, internal stereo speakers and a headphone socket".


    when he was a young warthog



        He found his aroma lacked a cetain appeal - he could clear the savana after every meal

          I'm a sensitive soul, though I seem thick-skinned!

            And it hurt... that his friends... never stood... DOWN WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND!!!!!!!!!!!

    It looks like a PSP got intimate with an iPhone

      i also smell another apple lawsuit haha

      Apple lawyers in 3... 2... 1...

    Always loved the Neo Geo games in the arcade, and ever wondering if Santa would bring
    me such a gaming system. Sadly, Santa favored the rich kid across the street more than me.

    What was that game with the two elves called again? They used to have the coolest power-ups,
    and the art was amazing. Forget the name.. It was part of a 2 games in 1 thing?

      Blues journey or spinmaster ?

        Might be Blues Journey, although it might have been called differently still, not 100% sure, any other leads?

          Twinkle star sprites ?

            Nope, Gabe already answered a few posts down, it was
            Midnight Wanderers, not an Neo geo game :( (But would be cool though
            if they added it to this console haha. )

    Sounded tempting until I saw Windjammers isn't included.

    So can you add new games to this later or is it 20 games and thats it?

      It has SD card. So ROMS I presume - insert copyright warning

    Why would anyone buy this ?, there are too many free options on many devices including phones

      The three letters on the handheld. SNK.

    That's *beautiful*.
    If the thumbstick is well built (my GP2X was frustrating in that regard) it's a real winner.

    Just a pity that there's no 3rd-party puzzlers on it - obviously a licensing thing.
    Magical Drop 3 would be awesome. Even Puzzle Bobble would have been nice.

    I'm pretty sure you're talking about '3 Wonders' which wasn't a Neo Geo game.
    It was a regular JAMMA board, on Capcom's CPS1 system.

      That was it! Thanks, o well.. WAKUWAKU 7!!!!!

        Shows you how much i know about neo geo ain't it lol..
        Midnight Wanderers! That was the title!

    £500 - WTF - oh well. Slowly pulls out wallet. I sincerely hope its less than that

    Me want one. I heart Neo Geo so much it hurts.

    Metal Slug is the only one of those games I'd get it for, and there are far more economical ways to enjoy metal slug. Add in Mark of the Wolves and Last Blade 2 and I might change my mind though.

    does anyone else think this would make a great handheld emulator machine? it looks perfect for playing NES and SNES games.

    This console exist because of phones, phones are down right crap for arcade gaming....FACT. Phones work well with some types of games and arcade games are not one of them. A touch screen joystick with two touch screen buttons just doesn't do it. There are ways to get your hands on these games for free or on the cheap, but the phone is the bottom of the barrell

      The Xperia play works great with emulators :)

    Does it have MAX 330 MEGA PRO GEAR SPEC?

    I thought they debunked this image a month ago

    Blaze has seemingly acknowledged limited ed -£500. Apt but holy shit

    Looks more like a cross between an iPhone and a Neo Geo Pocket to me.

    Anyone notice how it goes L1, L2, R1, R2? Shouldn't it be kind of symmetrical, like L1, L2, R2, R1? Seems a bit strange to have one shoulder button L1, and the other R2...


      It's just because it's a poorly done fake image. It's an iPhone 4 with psp parts shopped onto it

    can has as GBA instead plz?
