A console version of the Neo Geo is back, a full two decades after the Neo Geo Advanced Entertainment System effectively priced itself out of the market.

The Neo Geo X Gold includes a Neo Geo X handheld, a charging station, and an old-school arcade joystick.

The handheld features a 4.3 inch LCD display, an expandable game card slot, internal stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The charging station has A/V and HDMI outputs so it may be plugged into a TV.

The system comes with 20 built-in games.

"Great game consoles don't die; they're just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages," said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan.

"The Neo Geo X Gold is a love letter to one of my favourite consoles of all time.”

The full list of built-in games is as follows:
• 3 Count Bout
• Art Of Fighting II
• Alpha Mission II
• Baseball Stars II
• Cyber Lip
• Fatal Fury
• Fatal Fury Special
• The King Of Fighters ’95

• League Bowling
• Magician Lord
• Metal Slug
• Mutation Nation
• Nam 1975
• Puzzled

The Neo Geo X Gold will be released worldwide December 6. The suggested retail price is US$199.99 (AU$189).
