NeoGeo X Gold Is A Handheld And A Console (And It’s $200)

neogeoSNK Playmore is kind of making a new console. They licensed the Neo Geo name and some software to Tommo who will distribute the NeoGeo X Gold in North America.

 

The hardware is neat since the NeoGeo X Gold doubles as a console and a handheld. Plug it into the docking station and you can use a NeoGeo X joystick, which looks just like the classic NeoGeo stick.

 

The bad news is the NeoGeo X Gold costs $199.99. Yeah, it’s pre-loaded with 20 NeoGeo titles, but the list is missing many classics. Here’s what you get with the Neo Geo X Gold:

 

3 COUNT BOUT

LEAGUE BOWLING

ART OF FIGHTING II

MAGICIAN LORD

ALPHA MISSION II

METAL SLUG

BASEBALL STARS II

MUTATION NATION

CYBER LIP

NAM 1975

FATAL FURY

PUZZLED

FATAL FURY SPECIAL

REAL BOUT – FATAL FURY SPECIAL

THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’95

SAMURAI SHODOWN II

KING OF THE MONSTERS

SUPER SIDEKICKS

LAST RESORT

WORLD HEROES PERFECT

 

The NeoGeo X Gold also has an expandable game slot, but it isn’t clear how you can add extra games to the system. "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 comes out on December 6.
