SNK Playmore is developing a new portable version of its classic Neo-Geo console.

Named the "Neo-Geo Keitai", or "Neo-Geo Portable", the mobile device plays 20 pre-loaded games from the original Neo-Geo's nineties era, Kotaku reports.

The portable boasts a 4.3 inch LCD screen and 2GB of memory, presumably expandable through the included SD card slot.

The games included are World Heroes, Ultimate 11, Top Player's Golf, Sengoku, Nam-1975, Mutation Nation, Last Resort, King of Monsters, Frenzy, Cyber-Lip, Fatal Furty Special, The Art of Fighting, Super Sidekicks, League Bowling, Metal Slug, Magical Lord, Baseball Stars Professional, Samurai Shodown, The King of Fighters '94, and Fatal Fury.

Photos of the device show A, B, C and D, Menu, Start and two shoulder buttons, plus an AV Out port and a headphone jack.

SNK has yet to formally announce the device, photos of which were posted last night on Japanese gaming blog Famicom-Plaza.

The Neo-Geo was released in Japan and North America in 1991 during the SNES and Mega Drive era. SNK has recently begun re-releasing Neo-Geo titles on the Wii's Virtual Console service, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
