    The explosion on the bottom of that cab looks like it's from Metal Slug actually.

    Agreed. Concave buttons are really only good on certain controllers imo, like the SNES X/Y etc and NES square controller. It is one reason I prefer it over the dogbone. Button mashing feels a lot better on there vs dogbone.

    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...
    Why that arcade machine wearing a burka?

    Shame, it does look like they're just going for a new gimmick with this one.

    The Neo Geo X had the portable-dock dynamic, but I think most folks just played it on their TV. This one might try the mini arcade form factor for the sake of novelty, but watch it get all its playtime via HDMI out.

    All they had to do was copy Nintendo's approach and put some solid effort in polishing the execution. They could even have been first to let people go online to buy new games, leveraging their success with the ACA releases.

    Well, if you lower your expectations, you will not be disappointed.

    I don't think this thing will have HDMI out.

    Did they ever give you any more details?

    Of course it's canned. Do you expect them to write a personalized letter to each video creator and blogger they want to cover their product?

    I wonder if they will make region variants of it like the SNES mini. Would be cool to have a big red and a candy cab variant..

    We all know this is going to end up being a POS and we will ridicule those who buy them.

    Ok, initial feedback from head of marketing, is that this is likely hoax/scam mail, but they need to verify internally and it is the Golden Week you know. He is gonna report the thing to his boss and will keep me posted.

    Agreed. In an age of practically perfect emulation where you can play teh romz on a vacuum cleaner, the likes of SNK(lol) has to throw down something pretty spectacular to make a real statement. Anything less will be bollocks

    Looks like a couple guys out in the desert built some machines and claim they're official. SNK is suing them claiming they're not official and stealing intellectual property. These guys are claiming in defense that SNK gave them the rights to be a third party publisher, and SNK just forgot and called the FBI for no reason. They presented a piece of paper with letterhead as evidence even though part of the case against them alleges what these guys do is print forged pieces of paper to look authentic.

    Neo geo mini info leaked.


    Kind of disappointed but over all looks pretty good. 3.5 in screen and portable. HDMI out and two controller ports. am fan of the Neo geo CD controller so happy about that, but Would have also liked an arcade stick as well. So hope the make them well and not with cheap plastic. the 40 games list is pretty good as well. but still missing good titles. Only time will tell if this is true but if its not its a damn good fake.

    Well.... I don't know. Kinda cool but a stand alone system with out the screen may have a better investment. Games are solid though.

    I think it actually looks pretty cool. The CD pads look great. Games list is pretty good too. Would like to see Baseball Stars 2 and Aero Fighters 2, but that list is very solid considering the NES/SNES classic systems were around 20 games each.

    I was hoping for a 5 inch screen, but still interested in it - now jus want to know the price and how the emulation is (hope the manufacturer is not Atgames). I think the $129 - $150 guess from the video is most likely correct. Do like the extra Neo Controllers, wish they would release Neo Sticks as well - hopefully the pads and if they do sticks are good quality.
