SNK Reveals Title Lineup for 2 Neo Geo Mini Systems

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Japanese Version launches this summer, International Version launches later; each system has 40 titles

SNK began streaming a 12-minute online presentation video on Saturday for the Neo Geo Mini system.

The system will have a 3.5-inch liquid crystal display, and is powered by USB. The system can also connect to an external display with HDMI, as well as to headphones and two controllers.

The system will have a "Japanese Version" (first picture below) for the Asian market and an "International Version" (second picture below) for North America, South America, Europe and other regions. The Japanese Version's color scheme evokes the original color scheme of the Japanese Neo Geo arcade cabinet, while the "International Version" features a more "modern" design.

Each system will have 40 games, and 14 of those games will differ in the two versions. The Japanese Version has more fighting games and the International Version has more action games. The Japanese Version will launch this summer, with the International Version launching at a later date.

The lineup includes:

The Neo Geo family of systems began with the cartridge-based Neo Geo MVS arcade system, and its home console counter part the Neo Geo AES, in 1990. At the time of its release, SNK touted an arcade-perfect experience with the AES, as it shared the same hardware as its arcade counterpart. SNK developed many of its most iconic game franchises for the system. SNK later released the Neo Geo CD and Hyper Neo Geo 64 systems. The Neo Geo Pocket and Neo Geo Pocket Color, released in 1998 and 1999 respectively, were earlier attempts at a portable version of the arcade system.

NIS America previously announced a separate SNK 40th anniversary project in April. NISA will release a 40th Anniversary Collection game for the Nintendo Switch this fall. The collection features classic SNK games from the 1980s before the Neo Geo.
