    New Metal Slug is being made for consoles, possibly new NeoGeo hardware (?) planned

    According to this, a new Metal Slug is being developed for consoles. Not sure about the NeoGeo ver 2 and 3 bit. It says it's not NeoGeo Mini-related.

    what´s a semi opened plattform ? Some kind of already hardware hacked or just a raspberry pi with NeoGeo Logo ?

    We?ve risen up anew to drink the wine of vindication!

    Maybe it's an FPGA based neo geo console? Semi open platform could mean off the shelf hardware solution? I'm clearly reading too much into it but fun to speculate.

    They also mentioned they aim to release two major games every year starting from 2020.

    Very interesting, would be cool if they revive some older, less known (to non Neo fans) franchises along with new concepts.

    This is my sentiment exactly. As my favorite Neo Geo "franchise", This could be worse than some of the later editions. I accept that games are not made for people who think like me any more either. They are for a younger and more shallow crowd generally. Very few "contemporary" games even come on my radar, let alone the fact that I buy less and less. In the last 8 years I have averaged 1 new game per year. Its my fault for having standards and holding my wallet close, and I accept that.

    If SNK’s wants to get back in the gaming scene they should make games that push their old hardware to the limit(like ng dev). And if they want to make new games that are too powerful for their old hardware they should make them for the systems we already have(PlayStation, Xbox, switch) like Sega does

    This is way too vague to even speculate currently. Let's just hope for the best

    My Speculatron 5000 predicts that the new hardware systems will be:

    Neo Geo "AES-style" mini console
    Neo Geo "modern" mini console
    Sony PVM Club, Blast City Club, Egret II Club, Neo Candy Club
    WTB: Neo Geo MVS-U4/29

    Hoping good things come of this.

    Though with the recent announcement of the Capcom home arcade, could SNK have something similar in the pipeline?

    It's a Neo Geo CD front-loading mini. Featuring virtual loading.

    Part of me hopes that I need to spend another 6 or 7 bills on this crazy awesome new AES2.

    But most of me knows it will be a Neo Geo X 2.

    I finally saw a Mini up close. What a piece of garbage. It's like George Lucas took over SNK.

    SNK just doesn't have the capital to make any sort of actual new hardware that's not some FPGA garbage. Most likely this will just be a new mini console maybe for the NGPC.

    Well as much as some hate the neo geo mini, it has been immensely successful in Japan, neo geo claims the neo geo 2 will be the true successor to the neo geo and not the mini, but news on depending on which sites claim will have built in games and have a chance to buy and play new games, who knows at this point, i feel it might be a niche system not meant to compete with Sony or Microsoft and Nintendo

    If your making something like the Mini, it would cost nothing extra to have Internet connectivity. So why not? Make something as cheap as the mini, not intended to compete with the big boys that you can sell new titles on. No need for physical media. I have a feeling this is their strategy.

    PS4 PSN is a goldmine market for all kinds of games. SNK should bring Metal Slug Attack to PS4.
