SNK has been on a tear the past few years. The classic Japanese video game company has been a mainstay of the industry for decades now, both as a hardware manufacturer and as a software developer. More recently, though, SNK has been working to churn out a number of its games as digital offerings via the Nintendo eShop as well as in the astounding compilation SNK 40th Anniversary Collection.

SNK isn’t done just yet, however, as the company is primed to launch a new version of its NEO GEO Mini. This iteration of the retro console (which we detailed here) has a Samurai Shodown theme and will come in three translucent differently colored variants (limited to 20,000 units apiece). Every bundle comes with the console, two controllers, an HDMI and USB cable, character stickers, and special character cards. Give them a look:

Here’s the lineup of games that this new version of the hardware will come with:

  1. Aggressors of Dark Kombat
  2. Alpha Mission II
  3. Art of Fighting
  4. Blazing Star
  5. Blue’s Journey
  6. Burning Fight
  7. Cyber-Lip
  8. Fatal Fury: King of Fighters
  9. Fatal Fury 2
  10. Garou: Mark of the Wolves
  11. The King of Fighters ’97
  12. The King of Fighters ’98
  13. The King of Fighters ’99
  14. King of the Monsters 2
  15. Kizuna Encounter
  16. The Last Blade 2
  17. League Bowling
  18. Magician Lord
  19. Metal Slug
  20. Metal Slug 2
  21. Metal Slug 3
  22. Ninja Commando
  23. Ninja Master’s: Haou Ninpou Chou
  24. Real Bout Fatal Fury Special
  25. Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers
  26. Robo Army
  27. Samurai Shodown (1993)
  28. Samurai Shodown II
  29. Samurai Shodown III: Blades of Blood
  30. Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge
  31. Samurai Shodown V
  32. Samurai Shodown V Special
  33. Sengoku 3
  34. Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad
  35. Soccer Brawl
  36. Super Sidekicks
  37. Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy
  38. Top Player’s Golf
  39. Twinkle Star Sprites
  40. World Heroes Perfect

The Samurai Shodown focus here is due to the new game that is coming to Switch some time in quarter four of this year (peep the trailer above). SNK is thus doing its best to build hype with these new NEO GEO Minis. The consoles will launch in Japan on June 27, but there’s no word yet of them coming to the west. Still, importing is always an option!
