The Japanese tweet said something similar, but it was along the lines of “Stay tuned for an all-new product that meets the passion of game fans and the needs of console games.” Details are light for now, as the information from the tweets are all we have from SNK.
During a 2019 investor relations press conference in Seoul, Korea, SNK announced plans for Neo Geo 2 and Neo Geo 3 were underway. The company made the announcement following the success of the Neo Geo Mini, but we haven’t heard much about the two potential systems since then. One thing we do know is that both the Neo Geo 2 and 3 will be successors to the original Neo Geo and not the Neo Geo Mini, according to SNK.
In November 2020, a subsidiary of Saudi Arabia’s MiSK Foundation purchased 28.8% of SNK shares owned by Hong Kong’s Zuikaku Co. Ltd., with plans to acquire the majority of the company’s shares.
