NeoGeo Arcade Stick Pro is a fighting stick with 20 classic games pre-installed

This should've been released in the first place instead of last year's Neo Geo Classic Mini.

Usable as a joystick or as a console.



The NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro, which was first announced earlier this month, is a fighting stick that comes with 20 classic SNK fighting games pre-installed, SNK announced. It will be released worldwide, but a release date has yet to be announced.

Get the details below.

About NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro

NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro is an incredibly unique fighting stick in that it comes with fighting games pre-installed! It was inspired by the NEOGEO CD’s controller design and was blown up to fighting stick size. (W 430mm Χ D 215mm Χ H 125mm) Additionally, the arcade stick can switch between two modes: Arcade Stick Mode and Console Mode.

At the moment, we have plans for a world-wide release. (However, please understand that the specifics may change based on the country.) Please wait for more updates concerning launch date and price.



Joystick Mode

In this mode, you can use the arcade stick normally by simply plugging it into a NEOGEO mini or PC. We guarantee a solid experience with this arcade stick.




Console Mode

In this mode, simply connect the stick via an HDMI cable into a TV and get ready to enjoy some of SNK’s finest fighting games. There are 20 pre-installed NEOGEO classics just waiting to be played. You can even rearrange the button layout in the options menu. Also, you can attach NEOGEO mini PAD controllers or even another NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro for some glorious two-player action!

Agreed that this is what snk should have released first and it already looks better than the mounstrosity that capcom plans to release.

It's a let down that it will come with half of what the neo geo mini offers but if it means that it gets a better work on the graphic upscaling, pricing and (why the hell not) distribution then it might not be so bad.

Looks cheap, probably because of the colors. I wonder how it actually feels. If reviews say it feels solid and has any modding potential I could see me picking this up, especially if it has Mark of the Wolves and Last Blade 2. Have they released the list?

Not a big fan of SNK games... but yet... I bought them. No clue why... I think I have a addiction problem.

haha, That's why I sold quite a few games, over 100+ games so far. I realized that I was buying for the sake of buying instead of playing them.

I have almost 1000 games just on my steam account, only played about 100 of them. lol

You know... i tried some of those games recently in the vita. While they are good fighters, the problem with old SNK fighters is the AI. Playing solo is an exercise in frustration.

So, i'd say apply only if you got someone else to play with you.

I say most of the fighting games have a very cheap A.I. it wasn't exclusive on snk games while they were one of the worsts with their bosses. For example in capcom games when you managed to dizzy the cpu the duration was for a fraction of second, some of their multi hit attacks equaled to receiving a lvl 3 super or in namco games practically the cpu will scape every single throw you perform or parry most of your attacks.

Getting back on the topic I would have replaced FF3 with the last Real Bout and taken out Art of Fighting in favor of the 3 wich had way better mechanics and replacing Samurai Shodown 3 with the 1st Last Blade.

I didn't mean just the final bosses btw. I was playing Garou and on regular fights the AI is relentless and input reads like a mofo. Of course, one can always lower the difficulty, i guess. I assume there is an option cause i didn't check. Garou is still awesome regardless though. As is SamSho5 and Last blade 2.
Do wish they had tutorials though.

Yeah, I wasn't refering to bosses either just mentioning that snk had some of the most cheap bosses on the genre.

The neo geo and most of arcade games had the option to select difficulty, in fact on neo geo you can check the level of the difficulty that was set at the bottom of the screen.

It was the 90s and they were coin op games of course they won't give you any in depht tutorials but in snk's case they went a bit further by adding in all their games tutorials that will teach you the basics, the rest would put the characters command list on the aracde cabinet and some good luck wish.

I would buy it if people like it better than most cheap arcade joysticks, cause I want a new one, but the actual good ones cost over 200 dollars, but at least this would come with games, if it will work easily with PC and other consoles, I will probably pick one up.
Either this, or build my own. Not that hard to do really, cost me under 100 to do just that.
