SNK Corp. has officially announced the NEO GEO Arcade Stick Pro and it may look like yet another unique fighting stick, but this controller actually comes with 20 fighting games pre-installed (Samurai Showdown, Fatal Fury, etc.). It draws inspiration from the NEO GEO CD’s controller design, but blown up to fighting stick size, measuring in at 430mm × 215mm × 125mm. Users can switch between two modes: Arcade Stick Mode and Console Mode. Read more for a video with additional information.
In Joystick Mode, you can use the arcade stick normally by simply plugging it into a NEO GEO mini or or your computer. However, the real draw is its Console Mode, in which you simply connect it to a display via an HDMI. Don’t like the button configuration? Just rearrange the button layout in the options menu. Plus, you can also attach NEO GEO mini PAD controllers or even another NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro for two-player action. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
