Last week, SNK revealed their latest hardware, the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro. As speculated, this unique fightstick features built-in NEOGEO games and connectivity
with TVs/NEOGEO Mini consoles & controllers. Today, SNK's official website posted their full press release, shedding some
light on the arcade stick's main features and layout. For one, NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro has 20 pre-installed fighting games (about half of the amount of games included with NEOGEO Mini). Console Mode enables the fightstick to connect to a TV via HDMI (and functionality with NEOGEO Mini Controllers), while Joystick Mode will connect
to PC and NEOGEO Mini consoles.

SNK OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
Introducing, the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro!
A fighting stick with 20 classic SNK fighters pre-installed!
The next in line for the NEOGEO legacy comes the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro. It's 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×D 215mm×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 2-Player action!
As the official press release states, a worldwide release is planned. Launch date, price, and games list have yet to be revealed. SNK said the current design and specifics are "still in development" and are subject to change.
