SNK Officially Confirms "Neo Geo Mini" as Their 40th Anniversary Hardware


Last month, SNK announced that they are working on a new hardware to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary. [UPDATE] Yeah, it's real. On May 10th, the company officially announced the Neo Geo Mini - which features: a 3.5" screen, 40 games, an HDMI port, 2 controller ports on either side, and customizable marquee & stickers. And apparently, "you can hold it in the palm of your hand"

SNK will release two versions, Neo Geo Mini "International" and a (Japanese) version of Neo Geo Mini visually based on 1990 Japan Neo Geo arcade cabinets. Additional information on price and release date announced by SNK at a later date. Read the official press release below and check out some crispy official images.

The NEOGEO mini, a video game console celebrating the 40th Anniversary of SNK’s brand is announced! 40 legendary NEOGEO titles will be included!

The NEOGEO mini is a video game console, which will include 40 nostalgic titles from the NEOGEO system, which made its debut in 1990. This console will feature a 3.5 inches display, meaning the games can be enjoyed with no need to connect to a TV or monitor! The size of the NEOGEO mini means it fits perfectly in the palm of one’s hand. The NEOGEO mini will be available in two different designs, one for the Asian market and the other one for overseas markets (for North America, South America, Europe and other regions). With its design in black, white, and red, the Japanese version of the NEOGEO mini will faithfully reproduce the original NEOGEO arcade cabinet that was introduced in Japan in 1990. The overseas version will be a simple and modern design in black, white and blue.

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

Below are the original leaked images we posted on May 4th, 2018. Even though the below image used a Metal Slug 6 (or 7?) image for the screen, that didn't mean it was all fake.
