NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro Games Lineup and Key Features Revealed

Earlier this month, SNK announced the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro, a fighting stick that's also a classic console that comes with 20 SNK fighting games pre-installed. Fast-forward a week or so, and now SNK has revealed more details and features on the product, including the games it will come packing. Leading the details is that the system can also be used as a controller for NEOGEO Mini, with a size of W430mmxD214mm, which means it's similar in size to other arcade sticks.

There's still no word of a release date or a price point, but SNK does note it's, at the moment, planning a worldwide release. It does note this could change in the future. Anyway, below you can peep more about the new confirmed features, and below that, see the 20 games it will come with:
