NEOGEO X GOLD confirmed for release worldwide!

Back in March we were getting all excited at the prospect of the NEOGEO X GOLD handheld system that was bringing the glory of the ground-breaking but unfortunately expensive NEOGEO AES console back into the hands of gamers, well there?s some good news and some good/bad news depending on your financial disposition.

The NEOGEO X GOLD has been confirmed for a worldwide release December 6th 2012, unfortunately it comes with a suggested retail price of $199.99, however a few interesting details to note, the games pre-installed have changed for the better!

  • 3 COUNT BOUT
  • LEAGUE BOWLING
  • ART OF FIGHTING II
  • MAGICIAN LORD
  • ALPHA MISSION II
  • METAL SLUG
  • BASEBALL STARS II
  • MUTATION NATION
  • CYBER LIP
  • NAM 1975
  • FATAL FURY
  • PUZZLED
  • FATAL FURY SPECIAL
  • REAL BOUT - FATAL FURY SPECIAL
  • THE KING OF FIGHTERS '95
  • SAMURAI SHODOWN II
  • KING OF THE MONSTERS
  • SUPER SIDEKICKS
  • LAST RESORT
  • WORLD HEROES PERFECT

So that?s removing Football Frenzy, The Ultimate 11 and Top Players Golf for some far better games including Alpha Mission II! As well as upgrading a few of the standard games to their sequels, however they have made the massive mistake of removing Sengoku; a brilliant side scrolling beat-em-up.

Alongside the NEOGEO X GOLD, you also get the NEOGEO X STATION and NEOGEO X JOYSTICK that allows you to charge the handheld as well as play it on your TV as though playing on an AES via HDMI or A/V out.

Distribution of the NEOGEO X GOLD system will be handled by BLAZE and Success Company in Europe, so, anyone interested in buying one?
