Not only am I excited to write about this, I’m about to go batshit crazy when this thing gets to my doorstep. But if you hate the idea of paying $60 for a game today, be thankful you didn’t own a NeoGeo system in the early ‘90s. NeoGeo games retailed for $200 and up. The system launched in 1991 for $649.99, and found moderate success then even though not a lot of people owned one. Today, the Neo Geo still has an insane amount of followers and it’s gaining more die-hards every year.

Tommo and SNK Playmore are celebrating NeoGeo’s 20th anniversary with the release of Neo Geo X Gold, a limited edition replica console that comes packaged with an arcade stick and the new NeoGeo X Handheld. This console can be played on the go (duh), or through the TV via composite or HDMI. Unlike its ‘90s predecessor, the NeoGeo X Gold Limited Edition retails for a reasonable $199.99 and comes preloaded with 20 games.

The list of games preloaded on the handheld:

3 Count Bout
Art of Fighting
Alpha Mission II
Baseball Stars II
Cyber Lip
Fatal Fury
Fatal Fury Special
The King of Fighters ‘95
King of the Monsters
Last Resort
League Bowling
Magician Lord
Metal Slug
Mutation Nation
Nam 1975
Puzzled
Real Bout: Fatal Fury Special
Samurai Shodown II
Super Sidekicks
World Heroes Perfect

The Limited Edition also comes packaged with a Ninja Master’s NeoGeo X game card. No other game cards have been announced at this time.
