An interesting tweet emerged from SNK Japan’s Twitter this morning. It seems to hint that a Neo Geo classic, or mini, console could be on the horizon. And I want it.
These consoles with a set of preinstalled games is nothing knew but seemed to gain in popularity once quality ones were released from Nintendo. This high level of success, which will no doubt continue from the company, has inspired others to do the same. Sega plans on launching its Sega Mega Drive mini sometime this year and Atari, well, they don’t even know what they’re doing.
A Neo Geo collection would be fantastic because it’s representative of a highly underrated console that was host to many great games in various genres. We’ll have to wait for more information but all signs seem to indicate it’s on the horizon.
With all of that said, what do you all think? What is SNK teasing? Do you want a Neo Geo mini console? What are some of the games you want included? For those of you unfamiliar with the console, several of the Neo Geo games can be purchased on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
