If you’re looking to relive some arcade classics, then you’re in luck because the folks at SNK have announced their latest console in the form of the Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro. As you can see from the image above, this is a fight stick and if you’re wondering where’s the console, it’s actually built into the fight stick itself.

According to SNK, “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.”

If you’re wondering why it looks so familiar, it is because it is based on the Neo Geo CD controller from back in the day, except that now it’s slightly larger to make it into a fight stick. The company also claims that the console will support a “joystick mode” which is where you can plug it into a Neo Geo Mini console or a PC. Gamers will also be able to connect Neo Geo Mini Pad controllers or even a Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro if you want to play with another player.

The company has yet to officially announce when the console will launch or how much it will cost. It will also come with 20 classic Neo Geo titles.
