Update 12/09/2018: As of today, pre-orders on the Neo Geo Mini International Edition are live on Amazon US, costing $109, which is a frustratingly low price compared to the UK's £129.99. Stock is likely to be limited so get your orders in while you can, US readers.

Original Story: Following its announcement earlier this year, SNK's miniaturised classic arcade cabinet - the Neo Geo Mini - is available for pre-order from Amazon, releasing 29th October 2018.

The Neo Geo Mini: International Version comes loaded with 40 classic Neo Geo games in the system by default, including classics from the Metal Slug, King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown franchises. The Mini is modelled after classic Neo Geo arcade cabinets, which we saw precious few of over here in the UK but were hugely popular in Japan and the US, albeit with different colour schemes in different territories.

The International version available for order here reportedly includes 14 games not previously included in the Japanese Neo Geo Mini release. The system is HDMI enabled and features a 3.5-inch display that runs at the ideal resolution for classic Neo Geo games. The whole package will cost you £129.99 while stock lasts.

In addition to the sytem itself, you can also order yourself Black and White controllers modelled after the classic Neo Geo home console pads. Those will set you back £24.99 each and release the same day as the system itself.
