SNK Reveals the 20 Games on Its Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro

SNK Reveals the 20 Games on Its Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro

It's a lot of fighting games, as you would imagine.

Another classic retro box is on the way, but this one hearkens back to its arcade roots rather than a console. The Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro is a new throwback console from SNK, and rather than just a box, it's an actual joystick-and-button stick setup that comes preloaded with quite a lot of fighting games.

Announced earlier this month, the Arcade Stick Pro can either hook up to a console as a plug-and-play system, using the Arcade Stick Pro or sets of Neo Geo Mini pad controllers. You can also hook it up to a Neo Geo Mini to use as a stick, or even to a PC, as a straightforward fight stick.

The games coming pre-installed on the Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro are listed below:

  • The King of Fighters '95
  • The King of Fighters '97
  • The King of Fighters '98
  • The King of Fighters '99
  • The King of Fighters 2000
  • The King of Fighters 2002
  • Fatal Fury Special
  • Fatal Fury 3
  • Garou: Mark of the Wolves
  • Samurai Shodown II
  • Samurai Shodown III
  • Samurai Shodown IV
  • Samurai Shodown V Special
  • Art of Fighting
  • World Heroes 2
  • World Heroes 2 Jet
  • World Heroes Perfect
  • Ninja Master's
  • The Last Blade 2
  • Kizuna Encounter

This is a pretty stellar lineup of classic Neo Geo fighting games; between a massive backlog of King of Fighters and Samurai Shodowns to pick from, as well as Fatal Fury and Garou, the fighting games you would expect are all here. There are also some hard-to-find games that will make collectors' ears perk up, like Kizuna Encounter.

Plus, if you're looking to brush up on your SNK knowledge before Terry Bogard takes to the arena in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, this seems like a good way to do so. The fact this can double as an actual fight stick is pretty cool too; it'll be interesting to see the modding fans can do with this, both internally and with the lever and buttons.

No release date or price point has been set yet for the Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro. If you want to get in some practice ahead of time, check out our guide to some of the best Neo Geo games on the Nintendo Switch, including The King of Fighters '98.
