The Japanese SNK reports in a tweet that it wants to celebrate its forty-year existence with the marketing of ‘a new gaming machine’. This may indicate the arrival of a mini version of the Neo Geo.

SNK is not very communicative in the tweet . For example, the Japanese company leaves the middle to see what kind of new game machine it is and also whether games will be delivered to the machine. In the tweet, the company places a picture of an object that is under a cloth, with the Neo Geo logo on the canvas. Although the tweet refers to the console, the object does not have the shape of the Neo Geo. The tweet does not make it clear when the new device appears on the market and what it will cost.

SNK may work on a mini version of the console. It would follow the track of Nintendo, which in recent years the NES Classic Mini and the SNES Classic Mini on the market. There are more companies that have followed the example of Nintendo. For example, recently THEC64 Mini appeared and Sega announced the Sega Genesis Mini earlier this month.

If the shape under the canvas is decisive, SNK could be planning to market a small version of an arcade cabinet. The Neo Geo also appeared in 1990 as an arcade cabinet, where the owner could place several cartridges. Based on the same hardware, the company later released a console for home use. In addition, cartridges could be changed to play different games. SNK is best known for fighting games like King of Fighters and Samurai Showdown, and shooters like Metal Slug.

SNK exists for 40 years and hints at Neo Geo Mini
