NeoGeo X Gold Limited Edition now available 0

NG00If you grew up playing games in the early 90s, you may remember the NeoGeo as that rare, practically unattainable home console owned by only the luckiest (and wealthiest) kids in the neighborhood. While the console initially retailed for $649.99 when it was released to consumers in 1991, the intimidating price of the console was not the only drawback as individual games retailed for approximately $200.00 each. However, despite these obscene costs, the NeoGeo was surprisingly successful as its impressive lineup of games and reputation as an arcade-style console made it a highly sought after prize among gamers. Now, thanks to Tommo and SNK Playmore, you can finally live the fantasy of being the envy of the entire neighborhood without having to sell a kidney.

In honor of the NeoGeo’s 20th anniversary, Tommo and SNK Playmore have created the NeoGeo X Gold Limited Edition which includes both the NeoGeo X Station replica console, and a NeoGeo X Handheld that can actually be housed within the console itself. In addition to a classically styled arcade stick, the limited edition also comes with a Ninja Master’s NeoGeo X Game Card and the following preloaded games.

  • 3 Count Bout
  • Art of Fighting
  • 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

In regards to the announcement, Tommo CEO, Jonathan Wan said “…it is something that can be shared and enjoyed by fans all over the world. We here at Tommo would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday, filled with friends, family and classic gaming for all!”  If you’d like to know more about the system, check out the launch trailer.
