NEOGEO makes its triumphant(?) return

 

Here’s some interesting gaming news (especially for you retro gamers out there), the NEOGEO is back. Yes, the system which was once considered ahead of its time is making a return courtesy of Tommo, Inc., in partnership with SNK PLAYMORE. The two companies announced today to the press that the NEOGEO X GOLD (interesting name) will be released worldwide this December.

The NEOGEO X GOLD is a streamlined portable version of the classic NEOGEO AES console from back in the day, and will be released following the 20th anniversary of the AES. The system will reportedly feature a docking system that allows for connection to your television, which will be modeled after the appearance of the NEOGEO AES. The system will also feature a working replica of the classic joystick controller so you can get the full retro experience.

“Great game consoles don’t die; they’re just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages,” said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan. “The NEOGEO X GOLD is a love letter to one of my favorite consoles of all time, and working with SNK PLAYMORE to acquire the NEOGEO license, Tommo Inc. looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go.”
