3D-Printed Neo Geo Cabinet Shell Turns Your Nintendo Switch into a Ferocious Fighting Machine

This cabinet shell is small and cute, but it's got attitude! Like--like a tiger cub!

Last week, I offered some reasons why you should download and play Hamster Corporation's Neo Geo titles on the Nintendo Switch.

Sometimes the best gaming experiences come in the form of desperate hacks, as these obscure Game Boy galleries demonstrate.

"Portability" is a big reason. Hamster Corporation's Neo Geo games are available on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but you can't tote those onto a plane unless you have a TV, a strong back to haul it, and a good argument for the TSA and flight attendants.

But more importantly, if you own Neo Geo games on the Switch, you can 3D print this smashing Neo Geo arcade cabinet / dock for your Switch's screen.

Well, maybe—at the time of this writing, the seller's 3D print files are sold out. Hopefully, demand will push the seller, ShigeryuShop, to re-stock.

Just look at how tiny and cute that cabinet is! Reminds me of those Coleco Mini-Arcade units I played with in the '80s, except this 3D shell lets you actually play King of Fighters '98 instead of an LCD facsimile.
