The NeoGeo X, which turned up in Japanese news in January, sports a 3.5″ LCD screen as well as A/V output connector.

The handheld has built-in speakers as well as a headphone jack, and includes an SD card expansion, presumably for further releases on top of the built-in games, which are listed below:

  • Art of Fighting
  • Baseball Stars
  • Cyber Up
  • Fatal Fury
  • Fatal Fury Special
  • Football Frenzy
  • King of the Monsters
  • Last resort
  • League Bowling

  • Metal Slug
  • Mutation Nation
  • Nam 1975
  • Samurai Shodown
  • Sengoku
  • Super Sidekicks
  • The King of Fighters ’94
  • The Ultimate 11
  • Top Players Golf
  • World Heroes

The new portable will release through Tommo in the US and Blaze in Europe, and has the SNK Playmore seal of approval. No price has been set, with Blaze denying a rumoured £500 RRP.
