NeoGeo X Classics Announced

NeoGeo SNK handheld

Did any of you pick up the NeoGeo X system? The handheld initially came in a special edition as well as regular, and came with twenty NeoGeo classics on the internal memory card. At the price of $200, it was still a tough sell to many modern gamers. Some even worried about the continued support of the system after launch. Well, that fear can be abated as Tommo Inc. and SNK have announced the next set of available games.

The system will see continued game releases via NeoGeo X Classics Vol. 1-4. Here are all the games that will be arriving via those different volumes:
  • Art of Fighting 3
  • Blazing Star
  • Breakers Revenge
  • Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves
  • Kizuna Encounter
  • The King of Fighters '96
  • The Last Blade 2
  • Metal Slug 2
  • Samurai Shodown 3
  • Savage Reign
  • Sengoku
  • Shock Troopers
  • Super Sidekicks 3 - The Next Glory
  • Top Hunter
  • World Heroes Jet
Vol. 1 includes Metal Slug 2, Sengoku, and Top Hunter in particular. The groupings of games for the other volumes is currently unknown. Each of these game sets also comes with a high-speed data transfer cable as well as a car charging cable. Volume 1 will be available for purchase in April.


That still doesn't seem like enough games to make the system worth $200...unless you REALLY like SNK games I guess. I am glad to see they're planning on continuing support, but I don't see myself buying one of these in the near future. There's so many other ways I could get these games without paying that much thanks to all of SNK's collections and digital releases.
If the NeoGeo X was $99, I'd probably buy one, but $200 is just way too much for my interest.
