The last time Japanese video games company SNK released new hardware we got the Neo Geo Mini arcade cabinet back in 2018. Now SNK is promising to launch a brand new games console next year.

As Siliconera reports, the tease of new hardware was made in a tweet both on SNK’s Japanese and Global Twitter accounts. The tweets gave nothing away, though, simply stating “A brand-new console is coming from SNK in 2021! A system to bridge the needs between passionate fans and console gaming enthusiasts! #SNK.”

The Neo Geo Mini offered 40 classic arcade games in what was an awkwardly-designed case and with some strange game omissions. It was still a fantastic collection to own, though. Since then, a Neo Geo 2 and Neo Geo 3 have been teased and SNK stated they are successors to the original Neo Geo and not the Mini. So it seems likely the console in 2021 won’t be a Neo Geo Mini v2.

If I had to guess, I’d say SNK is going to launch a new Neo Geo console, but filled with a collection of emulated games much like Nintendo has done with the NES Classic and SNES Classic. It would also be nice to see them do something to allow Neo Geo Pocket games to get a new lease of life, but that would likely take the form of a handheld rather than a home console.
