Neo Geo Pocket 2

Image: SNK, maybe. Via Andriasang.

I spent January telling anyone who would listen about a genius idea I had: Nintendo should introduce a download-only GameBoy Micro styled handheld for retro games and iOS style titles. Well, it seems someone listened, and it was either Neo Geo or a shady knock-off company.

Andriasang hails the device pictured above as the “return” of the Neo Geo Pocket, but the fact that SNK’s existence is uncertain leaves many wondering who’s making this thing, if anyone.

This new Neo Geo device reportedly includes a 4.3 inch screen, two gigs of internal memory, an SD card slot, and 20 classic Neo Geo games. Sengoku, Fatal Fury, Metal Slug, and King of Fighters ’94 are all supposedly pre-loaded.

Knock off Neo Geo knocks off my idea
