Famicom-Plaza unveiled a brand new officially-licensed Neo Geo portable today, which is currently being called Neo Geo Portable. We don’t know too much about the device, like when it will be made available or for how much, but what little we do know seems impressive. The portable is 100% legitimate, not some cheap knock-off. SNK Playmore have endorsed the project and we have the first pictures of the portable for your viewing pleasure.
The system comes in at 170 x 72 x 15mm! That’s quite a bit smaller than the Neo Geo Pocket Color was. Before you get too excited, realize that this device is intended for the retro Neo Geo fans, and it won’t be competing against the 3DS or the PS Vita. Instead this new portable will come with 20 classic Neo Geo gems included on the motherboard, with future games available for download through the portable’s included SD card port. The included games are…
Top Player’s Golf
King of Monsters
Fatal Fury Special
Art of Fighting
Baseball Stars Professional
The King of Fighters ’94
We also know that all of the games included will be based off the English versions, meaning no blood, but also English text which makes this extremely import friendly for those looking for all the SNK action they can handle on the go.
Here are a few more pictures of the device. Keep in mind the developers have added a screen protector which is why some of the pictures show the screen with air pockets.
So what do you think? The asking price will most likely only be around $60-$70 or so. Anyone interested?
