SNK announces Neo Geo Arcade Stick 20-game lineup

The colorful joystick Neo Geo previously announced is getting 20 built-in games.


When SNK initially announced its Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro, no one was quite certain what games it would include onboard. But now it looks like we've gotten a bit more information on what to expect, and things are looking pretty awesome for SNK fans. 

Now, it looks like we've got a full list of the 20 games the stick will be coming with, and it's a pretty impressive selection of SNK titles, according to the official press release from SNK:

  • The King of Fighters ’95
  • The King of Fighters ’97
  • The King of Fighters ’98
  • The King of Fighters ’99
  • The King of Fighters 2000
  • The King of Fighters 2002
  • Fatal Fury Special
  • Fatal Fury 3
  • Garou: Mark of Wolves
  • Samurai Shodown II
  • Samurai Shodown III
  • Samurai Shodown IV
  • Samurai Shodown V
  • The Art of Fighting
  • World Heroes 2
  • World Heroes 2 Jet
  • World Heroes Perfect
  • Ninja Master's
  • The Last Blade 2
  • Kizuna Encounter

According to SNK, the stick is 430 mm x 214 mm, "similar to other arcade sticks." The press release notes that it can be "put and played even on your knees stably." The company plans to release the stick worldwide, though there are no new developments on price or launch dates. SNK asks that we "please wait for more updates" in that respect.

The announcement had initially happened on Twitter, with Neo Geo describing its new product as "stylish and unique," but at the time we didn't know much about it at all. Other than the fact that it's brand-new and it's being touted as a "pro-gear spec advanced entertainment system," it looks like your run-of-the-mill arcade stick, but now we have the intel about the games it'll include, which makes it infinitely more valuable to gamers looking for some good, classic gaming fun. 

There's even some more information floating around that we didn't know previously about the stick. There are functional buttons on the sides to ensure players don't accidentally hit them while playing, as well as HDMI ports. Not only does the controller support Neo Geo mini but also PC, where you can use it as a controller. It comes with a 2 meter long USB cable that can be stowed away in the Botton storage compartment.

We don't know all the details yet unfortunately, but we'll keep you posted on further developments regarding when you'll be able to get your hands on this awesome-looking new arcade stick. We definitely want to grab one, too.
