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.

No.

If that picture with the sheikh is anything to go by... it looks like a mini-arcade (a lá Tiny-Arcade). Which sucks cawks. A proper sized bar-arcade machine would have been nice; with like, actual hardware or FPGA (never gonna happen).

Not entirely surprising that fans put the time in (i.e; Super NT) but actual companies just end up releasing glorified Raspberry pi's with shitty emulators (Neo Geo X anyone, Sega with at-games?). They're just putting toys on the shelves of manchildren collectards at this point, so I doubt they care as long as those idiots keep scooping that feces up like the starved nerd-tards that they are.

This is 100% accurate, also made me literally laugh out loud when I read manchildren collectards haha.

no way this will be anything good - if it is a cool/decent bartop mini I might bite...but this will more than likely suck

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.

Usually overhyped things suck. Since virtually everyone talks shit about the VCS then obviously it will be a roaring success.

It's a table top with a neo 19 "hood" design. Supposedly the joystick detaches. I can't make out the other mini marquees, but the last one is for sure KoF 97.

*Edit* looks like the first one is Sengoku 2 or Mag Lord and KoF 02 is the second one. That's an odd mix of games.

You guys are thinking about the profile of the cover all wrong:

Sawce?

Also, if true, I wonder if they'll make a big-red version for the US market. Would be cool to have one that looks like the rev 3. cab in bartop/tabletop form.

Can't wait for all you freaks who own a NeoSD to make a big fuss trying to buy an emulator box.

They could have played it safe, made something normal people would want. But no. The fuck is going on here? Stillborn. SNK died 18 years ago

It's probably going to be preloaded with all the games we've seen a million times on collections like KOF 94, Art of Fighting, Magician Lord, etc... I'll pass.

Does this mean they will be re-printing AES carts too?
