The NEOGEO X Gold is a revival of one of the best arcade-to-home systems ever released in the history of video games. Some of the industry’s most memorable franchises such as Metal Slug and The King of Fighters were pioneered on the Neo-Geo hardware.
Set to launch on December 18th, 2012, SNK-PLAYMORE’S NEOGEO X Handheld promises to bring both portable and console gaming to the home. For the uninitiated, the NEOGEO X Gold bundles comes replete with a docking station to connect the NEOGEO X handheld to your television. The package also includes an authentic Neo-Geo AES (Advanced Entertainment System) joystick and Ninja Masters on cartridge.
Why should you purchase a Neo-Geo X Gold system? For one, you’re supporting the parent company. And second, you’re playing the games on authentic Neo-Geo hardware.
