SNK’s Neo Geo Mini Could Be Its Own Miniature Arcade Cabinet W/ 40+ Games

It was only a month ago that word broke from the team at SNK that they were working on a “Neo Geo Mini,” coming in at a time where retro throwback consoles are rapidly becoming the norm. That being said, during their announcement we received little more than, well, an announcement. With no images showcased to the audience apart from a mysterious draped device, fans were left curious as to just what SNK was cooking up with this one. Well if recent leaks are to be believed, it looks like we might have our first look at the mini console:

Let’s get this out of the way, for such a small console, it really feels like SNK intends to pack some serious punch. Gorgeously designed to look like a miniature arcade cabinet, the alleged Neo Geo Mini is suggested to be packing 40+ games that you’ll either be able to play on its 3.5-inch screen or your own display through its built-in HDMI output. The full list of leaked titles can be found below:

  • The King of Fighters ’95
  • The King of Fighters ’97
  • The King of Fighters ’98

While there’s currently no word on just how much the Neo Geo Mini will cost, this most definitely is a game collection filled with value. From Metal Slug to The King of Fighters, there’s a number of timeless titles contained within the Neo Geo Mini’s small form factor. Additionally, there’s still yet to be any word of just when the console is expected to release.

While there’s still not any official confirmation from SNK pertaining to the leaks, it’s definitely worth taking this information with a grain of salt. That being said, I’m not going to deny my sheer excitement. Further information about SNK can be found via their official website.
