Neo Geo Mini


Google Translation:

This year, SNK brand celebrates 40th anniversary. A new game machine that contains popular titles of NEOGEO will emerge, expressing gratitude to all fans who support SNK's works such as "KOF" "Fatal Fury" "Samuai Shodown" "Metal Slug" ! Please stay tuned. The Future is Now! # SNK # SNK 40th # NEOGEO # Neo Geo

Let's see if SNK won't repeat the same mistakes they previously did in 2012 by handing out their Neo Geo license to Tommo...

Personally I'm quite sure this will be some kind of "Mini Cab" or at least "Mini AES" running the games on emulation. Considering that nowadays there's even a Mini C64 it wouldn't surprise me if SNK did the same.
Yes I'm sure this will be on the back of the success of the mini SNES. Hope it's a mini cab rather than a mini AES.

I don't think its possible for any company to make a machines like the mini-SNES etc perfect because they will always be looking to make it at the lowest cost possible to make the most money per unit. Agree with you Murikov, hope they learned form the Neo Geo x debacle.

I want SNK to make Garou MOTW 2 on Neo Geo AES/MVS. I'm sure it could be profitable for them. They could pretty much charge what they wanted and they would sell out. I read in an interview they said they would never make another NEo Geo game because of how easy it is to pirate the carts. Well none of the NGDevteam games on their own cartridges (Last Hope 1 was a sacc) has ever been cracked. So nows the time SNK. Fan service! Terry

Interestingly SNK always keeps saying in their interviews that a Garou 2 is never off the table, as it's one of their most beloved franchises.

For the near future I can only imagine that SNK keeps releasing 3D games in the style of KoF XIV. I wonder what their next project is going to be after SNK Heroines.
It looks luxurious for a mini-console, based on the image accompanying the teaser. To be blunt this is not what I was wishing for from SNK, hence I will continue saving up for an Apple watch.
SNK needs to pull the trigger on their reveal to keep people interested (and let us decide if it’s something to start saving up for or not...).

I’m 100% with ya regarding Garou 2!! If we can’t have a proper release on AES/MVS, I’d appreciate a sequel that’s faithful to its 2-D sprite-based roots along the lines of KOF13. A guy can dream, right?
I'm sure some of you have picked up the news already about possibly leaked pictures of said console:

Needs to be taken with a grain of salt though, since the source is a bit dubious. On the other hand we've seen similar leaks about KoF XIV or other SNK products to be proven true.

On that note I'm personally much more interested how this hardware can be modded with custom firmware and such. Smile
The Good
The rumored built-in game library looks spectacular.

The Bad
I'm going to come right out and say it: the construction and design look janky. Could just be the size of the image showing the side, but are they seriously using proprietary controller ports in a time when USB just make so much more damn sense? I am hoping the side controller port is for a second player because I am assuming no online co-op? If not, welp (two guys sharing a small-ass screen is not ideal either (although I see there is video/audio out)... Here's hoping it at least has a metal base and glass screen... :(

The Ugly
Price being $300-500 for the console alone? Added accessories such as controllers being $50 each? God forbid the power supply is an additional $30 purchase.

Any wager on whether this will be made in China or Japan?
SNK just let the cat out of the bag:


English Details:

The NEOGEO mini, a video game console celebrating the 40th Anniversary of SNK’s brand is announced! 40 legendary NEOGEO titles will be included!

The NEOGEO mini is a video game console, which will include 40 nostalgic titles from the NEOGEO system, which made its debut in 1990. This console will feature a 3.5 inches display, meaning the games can be enjoyed with no need to connect to a TV or monitor! The size of the NEOGEO mini means it fits perfectly in the palm of one’s hand. The NEOGEO mini will be available in two different designs, one for the Asian market and the other one for overseas markets (for North America, South America, Europe and other regions). With its design in black, white, and red, the Japanese version of the NEOGEO mini will faithfully reproduce the original NEOGEO arcade cabinet that was introduced in Japan in 1990. The overseas version will be a simple and modern design in black, white and blue.

We hope you look forward to enjoying the NEOGEO mini along with its legendary and popular NEOGEO titles. For more details such as the release date and title lineup, please stay tuned for future announcements.


■ Product name: NEOGEO mini
■ Number of titles: 40 titles
■ Display size: 3.5 inches
■ Size and weight: W135mm x D108mm x H162mm /600g
■ Accessory: Power supply cable (AC adaptor will not be included)
■ Connection terminals: HDMI terminal (Input for TV monitor), headphone terminal, 2 external controller terminals

So the leaks were legit after all.

But nothing new on the price or game list(s) yet.

At this point I'm all the more interested in how to mod this thing...

I'm almost 100% positive this will be China-made (or another low-cost country) since it wouldn't do sense to do it somewhere else, from a cost perspective. I think the times of consoles being manufactured in Japan are definitely over since the end of the 90's.

Totally agree with you on this, having no USB port seems a no-brainer to me. The official statement leaves out what ports we're dealing on this thing exactly.

I think you are spot-on on this as well - again this seems pretty senseless to me.

I am looking forward to it but i dont know if i could afford 300 dollars for it though so hoping its a decent bit lower
Looks nice! I'm glad it's not just a mini -AES but I'm still not sure I would buy one since I always prefer playing NG games on a big screen. I could be persuaded though....

Most important is that the games play exactly the same as originals and that the screen is high-quality,
Mini-Reviews of films I have just watched :

Well, while that's nice and all about the NG Mini, didn't they learn from their mistakes when they released the NG-X? All it is to me is another glorified emu system. Especially playing that as it its will feel really weird with the mini joystick and buttons. (Though yeah, there's AES styled pads instead.)

However, I wished the International version looked like the Red US MVS cabs instead of the AES looking design.
Does this thing have a built in battery? The video referenced being able to use the USB port to plug in a battery?
If an additional battery is needed to make this portable then that can also be added to the cost, along with the 2 pads (which would be essential given the standard small controller it comes packed with).

Having said all that, this bad boy would look awesome on my desk at work!
In case you guys haven't watched the newest video already:

Judging from the video it looks like that. They just vaguely gave some remarks about a battery, but nothing else.

Personally, I would rather wait for more details before buying this thingie. For me it seems that even for SNK many things are still hazy and uncertain.

Apart from that it looks slick for sure, but as we know from Neo Geo X looks can be deceiving. ;)
This could work out pretty expensive - basic unit, 2 x pads and a battery......

I m guessing that they would like to have released an AES mini, but are perhaps still locked into an agreement with Tommo preventing this from happening for the time being.

As you said, looks can be deceiving, so am also waiting until I can read some reviews of this baby.
Yeah... looks cool, but no way I would pay over $100 for something like this... especially since I own the original hardware.
