SNK Is Releasing A "Neo Geo Classic Edition"
« on: April 20, 2018, 02:02:50 AM »

SNK has announced today that it will be jumping on the "Classic Edition" bandwagon with its own new system, which will come pre-loaded with beloved Neo Geo titles. For those who don't know, the Neo Geo was SNK's high-end home system from the '90s, which delivered arcade-quality gaming at eye-watering prices.

We've already seen the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition, and Sega recently announced it would be creating its own challenger in the form of the Mega Drive Mini. We've also witnessed classic home computers like the ZX Spectrum and C64 getting miniaturised.

This new hardware will no doubt contain titles from franchises such as Fatal Fury, King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown, and is being created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Japanese company. Many of these games are already available for download on the Switch eShop.

This will be their second attempt, although it sounds like they are doing it themselves this time. The Neo Geo X was made by another company. I have an X and I think it's pretty cool but I know some people didn't like it. Hopefully this will make all the fans happy.

I never got the X.  Maybe this will be a worthwhile system to pick up.

Problem with the pre-loaded games on such a console is that they're 80% based on fighting games, which I don't like at all. There are so many other great SNK games.

Plus like I mentioned already before, using RetroArch on a PS3 does the job very well, and you have ALL their games.

Just saw these on Twitter.





They are supposedly leaked pics, but they very well could be fake.

If they are real, I'm definitely getting one!

You don't like the look of it or you don't think it's real?

I think it looks nice, but most likely it's fake.

I'm not getting my hopes up, but it would be nice if this turns out better than the X.  What I would like to see happen is for SNK to allow users to purchase more games on a computer through an online store and load them onto an SD card which can then be inserted into the console.  They miss so many great titles with all their compilations and I think it would be great for people like me who would buy all their fighting games so I can get the ones I want.

If they implement an SD card that would make the console even better.  One can only hope.

That’s probably not going to happen, sadly enough.
