    The Neo Geo mini is coming...

    So this just got tweeted earlier today by SNK Japan...
    https://mobile.twitter.com/SNKPoffic...86502679015424

    And translated it says...
    This year, SNK brand celebrates 40th anniversary. A new game machine that contains popular titles of NEOGEO will emerge, expressing gratitude to all fans who support SNK's works such as "KOF" "Legend of Fatal Family" "Samsupi" "Metasura" ! Please stay tuned. The Future is Now!


    Looks like they are planning a Neo Geo mini...

    Depending on how the emulation is, I might bite.

    Seriously doubt SNK has the cashflow to R&D a new console, plus why would they do that? You can just release games on consoles/pc and make money that way. What could they possibly offer that the current gen cannot?

    A new sprite based system. Take Nintendo's way and do something different than anyone else.

    You can make sprites in pretty much any engine that is available now to any developer. There would be ZERO reason for SNK to create a new engine just for 2d art, you can use Unity, Game Maker Studio 2, etc. The R&D alone for a new engine would crush the company. Then the R&D for a new system? Even the switch is using off the shelf engines for game making.

    Unreal Engine is pretty neat for 2D looking fighting games under the right hands... i.e. Arc Systems.

    To support the company, maybe. A bar top style I would pry be down with that.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    Yup.

    Looks to just be a scaled down cab that a person can put on a table top.

    It’s going to be another POS like the Neo Geo X.

    But I’d like to be proven wrong.

    "GE presented Mr. Bader Al-Asaker with a special gold version of the NEOGEO mini, which is a product designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the SNK brand."

    Going by this pic it is just a small gimmicky toy arcade, not a full bartop.

    Oh man, if that's the size, it's worse than I imagined.

    Maybe, but SNK did take legal action to stop Tommo from making more Neo Geo X consoles when it was clear they were piles of shit, so you'd think they'd learned their lesson that time... But maybe that's a tad too optimistic.

    Atari is even bringing a new systems the market. Just as a reference I mean it would be cool to see SNK do it all over again.

    Yeah, and everyone's already shitting on the VCS, given it's just a generic Linux box, that can play some 2600 games and stream games from a PC, which is really, really underwhelming and typically Atari.

    They would make more money if they just sold the casing.

    I'm hoping it's either A. An official mini system with HDMI, original style controllers and spot on emulation, or B. A surprise 40th anniversary system that is a reproduction/reprinting of the AES full scale with built in games but also the ability to play carts all over HDMI.
