There's no shortage of ways to play the classic Neo Geo games in 2020. There are mini arcade machines, stick arcade games built-in, and all kinds of bundles on traditional platforms. But titles like Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters are best enjoyed in a proper arcade closet — and now you can buy one for your home featuring 50 classic games.

The new device is called the Neo Geo Multi Video System, or MVSX for short. It's a full-sized arcade cabinet with tons of games included. There is a particularly strong emphasis on combat: there are 10 different iterations of King of Fighters, in addition to other Neo Geo mainstays such as Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury, and World Heroes (You can see the full list here.) This unit has a 17-inch LCD screen, 10 language options, the ability to play the home and arcade versions of each game, and two sets of controls for multiplayer combat.
You also have several options on how to configure the device. The cabinet is 25 inches (0.64 m) high and costs $449.99, making it great for any tabletop, but there's also an optional 32-inch stand that costs $99.99. You can buy them together for $499.99, giving you a good stand-up machine. Preorders for the MVSX will start next month, while the devices are expected to ship in early November.
