NeoGeo, the classic gaming console of the 1990’s, will have a rerelease in December this year as part of its 20-year anniversary in the industry.
The upcoming NeoGeo X Gold entertainment system is a package consisting of three items: the NeoGeo X station, the NeoGeo X handheld with 4.3-inch LCD display and 20 pre-loaded classic NeoGeo titles, and the NeoGeo X joystick.
The NeoGeo X handheld also features an expandable game card slot, internal stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for a personal mobile gaming experience.
NeoGeo games are still here but most of them are currently available only on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and in the Sony PlayStation marketplace. This new release caters to enthusiasts who are still into retrogaming on 20 bundled titles that include Fatal Fury, King of Fighters and Metal Slug.
The hardware manufacturing and retailing is handled by videogames reseller Tommo and SNK Playmore, both of which released information about the NeoGeo reboot exclusively to RetroGaming Roundup.
“Great game consoles don’t die; they’re just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages,” said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan.
“The NeoGeo X Gold is a love letter to one of my favorite consoles of all time, and working with SNK Playmore to acquire the NeoGeo license, Tommo looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go.”
The NeoGeo X Gold gaming console will hit North America, Asia and Europe, and scheduled for release on December 6.
