NeoGeo handheld plans announced

Written by David Stellmack

NeoGeo

$200 NeoGeo X to arrive in December

The plans for the promised NeoGeo handheld that we told you about some time back have been announced. The NeoGeo X Gold, which is a partnership between Tommo and SNK Playmore, will launch worldwide on December 6th with a suggested retail price of $199.

The NeoGeo X Gold package will come with the NeoGeo X handheld, the NeoGeo X Station, and the NeoGeo X Joystick. The handheld will feature a 4.3-inch LCD screen, SD card slot to load additional game titles, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The handheld comes pre-loaded with 20 NeoGeo titles.

The NeoGeo X handheld uses the NeoGeo X Station to charge the handheld as well as transfer the gaming action to your television screen using either HDMI or composite video connection. The NeoGeo X Joystick connects to the NeoGeo X Station, which in turn connects to your TV for the ultimate in a classic NeoGeo gaming experience.

The 20 pre-loaded game titles include: 3 COUNT BOUT, ART OF FIGHTING II, ALPHA MISSION II, BASEBALL STARS II, CYBER LIP, FATAL FURY, FATAL FURY SPECIAL, THE KING OF FIGHTERS '95, KING OF THE MONSTERS, LAST RESORT, LEAGUE BOWLING, MAGICIAN LORD, METAL SLUG, MUTATION NATION, NAM 1975, PUZZLED, REAL BOUT - FATAL FURY SPECIAL, SAMURAI SHODOWN II, SUPER SIDEKICKS, WORLD HEROES PERFECT.

Tommo Inc. who will be handling the distribution of the NeoGeo X Gold in most regions, we are told, but Blaze will be handling the distribution of the NeoGeo X Gold in Europe. It is unclear currently if there is a timetable to release an add-on NeoGeo X Joystick or additional SD Cards containing additional game bundles; but if sales are good, expect to see them quickly.

While the $200 price tag is higher than many were hoping for, this is clearly a bigger package than what was initially thought. It will be interesting to see how well it sells, but those who wanted a NeoGeo when it was first released will finally be able to afford one.
