Ohh there's a release date now. I might be interested.

But still wish it was a Sega portable thought.

Wasn't this originally teased ~6 months ago? Anyway, this mostly looks like a Dingoo with a Neo Geo logo slapped on it. The list of games looks like it was chosen to maximize the number of games that could be fit into cheap onboard flash storage. They get that the Neo-Geo brand still has relevance to some people, but they have no idea why.

Some pictures were released or leaked, but IIRC SNK released a statement saying it wasn't a real thing. If you're conspiracy-minded you might think it was a deliberate leak by the hardware makers to gauge interest during license negotiations or something. But yeah, it's probably the same hardware as Blaze's GameGadget with a different control layout.

If it's cheap and the emulation is accurate enough it might be an interesting toy (esp. if you can just put ROMs on an SD card), but there isn't really anything you can't get form a Dingoo or similar handheld except maybe better distribution. I wonder how many GPL violations it will come packed with?
