NEOGEO X Gold Entertainment System Coming in December

My limited experience with the Neo Geo was playing countless hours of Metal Slug on a Neo Geo emulator that was installed on some of the computers at my high school. Outside of that, I’m unfamiliar with the console, but that may not remain the case. Tommo Inc. and SNK PLAYMORE are releasing the NEOGEO X GOLD entertainment system this December, following the original console’s 20th anniversary.

The new system will come with the NEOGEO X Station, the NEOGEO X Handheld (with 20 classic titles pre-loaded), and the NEOGEO X Joystick. The handheld device features a 4.3″ LCD display, an expandable game card slot, internal stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also works in conjunction with the NEOGEO X Station and the NEOGEO X Joystick to take the gaming to a television or monitor.

The NEOGEO X GOLD entertainment system will be available on December 6 for $199.99.
