Like, a real console. Maybe?
In a recent tweet, SNK announced that it was working on a new NEOGEO console.
So let’s recap what this tweet says:
- Modern design
- Linkable to NEOGEO Mini
- “Wonderful play feeling”
- Next-Gen NEOGEO
Now, what this all means is anyone’s guess. The company revealed during their last investors’ meeting that it was working on successors to the NEOGEO Mini, due to its popularity. A “Next-Gen NEOGEO” that connects to the original may somehow upscale or unlock new modes in the games, or bring new control methods given the company’s arcade heritage. Either way, labeling it “Next-Gen” makes us think that it’s meant to go up against the next PlayStation and Xbox One, which would be unlikley given the investment needed.
With Gamescom, PAX and Tokyo Game Show all coming up within the next couple of months, there are plenty of opportunities for more info.
