We’ve already told all about the Neo Geo X portable that comes at the heart of the upcoming Neo Geo Gold console bundle, but today European developer Blaze has revealed the official European price point for when the whole package launches.

£175/€199 will be the magic numbers on December 6, when the retro console releases worldwide. That’s a pretty big drop from the £500 price we were told earlier this year, but a welcome one nonetheless.

Eurogamer is also reporting that those who pre-order the console’s limited edition will receive access to the 1996 2D fighter Ninja Masters.

As previously detailed, the new Neo Geo set allows players to play a heaping of games over two decades old. It’ll come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, with plans for further standalone releases to come if the system proves to be popular enough.
