New Neo Geo Hardware is Under Development
There is a new Neo Geo system is in development right now over at SNK! Well actually 2 new Neo Geo systems in the works over at SNK! The reveal was made during an investor relations call by SNK Corporation chairman Ge Zhihui. As of this moment, the systems have only been shown as Neo Geo 2 and Neo Geo 3. Apparently, the decision to make the new systems was made due to the surprisingly high sales of the Neo Geo Mini, a plug & play micro-console that came pre-loaded with a lot of games!
It was also announced during this call that a New Metal Slug game is also in development for the new systems. It is not yet known if this game will be exclusive to the platform or not but it is said to be a separate entry from the Metal Slug game in development over at Tencent. If this game is considered mainline it will be the first mainline entry in the long-running franchise in nearly 10 years.
