SNK approved portable Neo Geo on the way

by on Jan.26, 2012, under News

You’ve probably seen it all over the ‘net by now, but SNK has lent the official Neo Geo license to a new portable system.

The Neo Geo Ketai (portable) boasts a 4.3 inch LCD screen, 2GB of flash memory storage (expandable through the SD slot) and will come preloaded with 20 preloaded Neo Geo classics (and some not-so-classics) including World Heroes, Ultimate 11, Top Player’s Golf, Sengoku, NAM-1975, Mutation Nation, Last Resort, King of Monsters, Frenzy, Cyber-Lip, Fatal Furty Special, The Art of Fighting, Super Sidekicks, League Bowling, Metal Slug, Magical Lord, Baseball Stars Professional, Samurai Shodown, The King of Fighters ’94 and Fatal Fury.

SNK has not officially announced the device yet, but pictures of the system popped up on Japanese blog Famicom-Plaza.

    You know, as stunning as this looks, I can’t help but feel that it will be an overpriced/underperforming piece of hardware. The SNK license means nothing to me, it has as much credibility as SEGA lending their name to Blaze, we all know how sub par the range of Blaze consoles are – throwing a licensed SEGA logo on the box doesn’t make them perform any better.

    It looks great, but there are plenty of handhelds on the market that emulate a diverse range of systems and that have plenty of hardware grunt.

    In my opinion, this ‘SNK’ console will have to be priced below $100 and allow one to freely load a range of roms of varying systems to be competitive and worthwhile. My guess is that it will be costly and only allow a minimal range of games to be played, most likely at a cost via some form of marketplace system.
