NEO GEO Mini lets you hold the power of the arcade in your hand

Every game company is jumping on the classic console bandwagon. But no mini console can hold a candle to the NEO GEO Mini.

Sure, it’s got 40 SNK arcade games from the ’90s NEO GEO heydays including Metal Slug, Fatal Fury, and King of Fighters packed in. Play each arcade throwback the way it’s meant to be played: with a joystick. Unlike other mini consoles, you can actually play it without the need to plug into a pesky television. Just plug it into any USB power source, and get your game on for hours.

Don’t worry, it works fantastic as a home console as well. Connect it to any TV or monitor with an HDMI input. And because SNK games are classically difficult, there’s a built-in save/load function making each title a little more forgivable. 

If you’re looking to get friends involved, upgrade to the bundle, which comes with two NEO GEO Gamepads. Throw a King of Fighters 2000 tourney, or do a speed run of Metal Slug X. The NEO GEO Mini comes out October 15 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $109. The controller bundle is available for $160.
