SNK announces classic NeoGeo PS3 pad

Geo think it'll get a European release?

Should the forthcoming NeoGeo Station on PlayStation Network not do enough to satisfy your retro cravings, then publisher SNK Playmore might have just the thing: a classic, PlayStation 3-compatible NeoGeo control pad.

Spotted by Engadget, it's a note-perfect replica of the old NeoGeo CD system controller, aside from a PS button and two extra face buttons to account for L1 and R1.

Alas, it's Japan-only for now but Play Asia are currently taking import orders for $44.90 (around 29).

We've been in touch with SNK Playmore to find out if there's an official western release planned and will update if we hear back.

NeoGeo Station launches on PlayStation Network on the 22nd December, offering a selection of classics from SNK's old platform, including Fatal Fury, The King of Fighters '94, Samurai Shodown, Metal Slug and Art of Fighting.

Games will cost 8.99 per title for PlayStation 3 and 6.99 per title for PSP, with more games due to be added post-launch.
