A Neo Geo For Your Pocket


What has a 4.3 inch LCD screen, 2200 mAh battery, 2GB and isn’t a knock off? This Neo Geo Portable (temporary name) revealed on Famicom Plaza.



SNK Playmore licensed the classic system’s name to make a new device. At 170x72x15mm, it’s even slimmer than SNK’s last portable system, the Neo Geo Pocket. Neo Geo Portable plays original Neo Geo games and comes with twenty loaded on board.


Which games? These games:

World Heroes
Ultimate 11
Top Player’s Golf
Last Resort
King of the Monsters
Football Frenzy
Fatal Fury Special
Art of Fighting
Super Sidekicks
League Bowling
Metal Slug
Magician Lord
Baseball Stars Professional
Samurai Shodown
The King of Fighters ’94
Fatal Fury


All of the games are North American versions with English text, which makes the Neo Geo Portable rather import friendly. It’s unclear if owners can install or play more games using the device’s built in SD card slot. The Neo Geo Portable also has shoulder buttons (L1, L2, R1, R2), a headphone jack and an AV out.
