“A Next-Gen NEOGEO hardware is coming after NEOGEO Mini,” reads a tweet from SNK’s Twitter account. “With a modern design and a wonderful play feeling and you can even link it to NEOGEO Mini, the new hardware will provide you a NEOGEO journey that you have never experienced.”

Aside from a tease that extra data is coming quickly, we, sadly, did not get any extra information on this next-gen {hardware} or what, precisely, a “wonderful play feeling” is. There’s additionally no further data accessible relating to once we can anticipate to listen to extra about this upcoming {hardware}, however we would anticipate to get some form of replace earlier than the tip of 2019. 

What may this imply, although? Well, the wording “next-gen” {hardware} would appear to recommend that these mad lads at SNK are considering of releasing a correct new console, however the phrase is definitely just a little extra ambiguous than that. While they’re probably speaking about some form of console that’s extra than simply an emulator, next-gen would not really should imply that the system will function superior expertise similar to different upcoming next-gen techniques. 

We’re in all probability one thing nearer to the Atari VCS or that Intellivision console the corporate has been teasing. That is to say that this upcoming Neo Geo will probably be a easy system that may play some traditional video games, a number of new ones, and supply restricted multimedia performance. Of course, that is pure hypothesis. It may be one thing good. 

Regardless, between the Neo Geo Mini, the Atari VCS, Intellivision’s console, Sega’s Genesis Mini, and people Commodore techniques, evidently the marketplace for retro gaming gadgets is not going anyplace regardless of the relative failures of the PlayStation Classic.
