SNK Playmore have announced a worldwide 6th December release date for the new Neo Geo handheld, just in time for christmas. It is called the Neo Geo X and will cost $199.99 (£127.49) and come with twenty games pre-installed.
A while back I mentioned that a Neo Geo handheld was coming to the market this year. Which can be read here:
It’s has now confirmed to be true.
SNK plans to release an officially licensed portable device that includes twenty Neo Geo games.
According to Famicom Plaza, this system, which has a temporary name of “Neo Geo Portable Device” will have a 4.3 inch screen, two gigs of internal storage, and twenty Neo Geo games built-in. It measures 170 x 72 x 15mm, which is slightly larger than an iPhone.

Update! 31/01/12: There is a site which claims to be the official site for the new Neo Geo. The new handheld is apparently called the Neo Geo X. There isn’t much on the site however you can register your interest in the Neo Geo X. I havent tried it out seeing as it might be a fake site.
