The Neo Geo Mini proved to be a enjoyable technique to play SNK’s basic arcade video games on a small display with its on-board controls. Nevertheless, lots of its titles, together with sequence like The King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, and Steel Slug, are multiplayer-focused, which makes the omission of additional controllers disappointing.

That is why this discounted bundle from Wal-Mart and Amazon is so compelling. Usually costing $140 USD, the bundle’s value has been discounted to $100. For that, you get the Neo Geo Mini, two controllers, and an HDMI cable. The controllers are primarily based on the Neo Geo AES’s pads, with one coming in basic black and the opposite in white. Along with its personal, built-in display, you may as well output the microconsole to a TV with the included HDMI cable.

You possibly can see a full checklist of the video games within the gallery above, together with a number of screenshots. I am notably keen on the Samurai Shodown sequence, however with licensed bangers like Steel Slug three, Shock Troopers, and The King of Fighters ’98, there are many nice video games within the Neo Geo Mini’s choice. I’ve all the time been slightly keen on SNK’s sports activities video games, so the inclusions of Tremendous Sidekicks and High Participant’s Golf are appreciated (nonetheless, I’m a fan of Neo Turf Masters, which is unfortunately not included).

Our Neo Geo Mini assessment praised the microconsole’s small kind issue and the way a lot enjoyable it’s to play these video games on its three.5-inch display. Nevertheless, GameSpot’s Peter Brown was disenchanted when outputting to a TV. He praised the emulation however lamented the picture high quality, scaling, and lack of choices. Jason D.
