SNK Releasing NEOGEO X Gold System

In a partnership between SNK Playmore and Tommo, Inc., gamers will get a taste of nostalgia this December with the release of NEOGEO X GOLD; a combination home arcade console and handheld device.

Basically what you’re getting is a NEOGEO X Station, along with an arcade joystick, as well as the handheld that comes pre-loaded with 20 classic titles.  The handheld has a 4.3″ LCD with an expandable game card slot, stereo speakers and a headphone jack.  The NEOGEO X Handheld will be compatible with the NEOGEO X Joystick and can be charged using the console itself, which will have standard A/V outs as well as HDMI.

“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 Inc. looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go.”

The entire system will be available for $199.99 and be sold in North America, Asia and Europe.

The pre-installed games will include:

  • 3 Count Bout
  • Art of Fighting II
