SNK Puts the Kibosh on Neo Geo X Manufacturing and Game Releases

License between SNK Playmore and Tommo Inc. gets terminated

Though pricy for what it is, something just felt great about the release of the Neo Geo X portable back in December 2012. The fun has come to an end, however, as SNK Playmore recently announced the termination of the license between itself and Neo Geo X manufacturer and distributor Tommo Inc. 

 

Upon the October 2 termination of the license, which was posted on SNK Playmore's website, Tommo Inc. was ordered to "immediately cease any and all manufacturing, distribution, marketing & promotion, and selling of the related products."

 

 

In addition to the Neo Geo X Gold Limited Edition itself, this puts an end to NEOGEO X MEGA PACK VOLUME 1 and the five available volumes of NEOGEO X Classics—the last of which included The Last Blade, Blue's Journey, and Art of Fighting 3—as well as the arcade stick that was sold separately. 

 

Did anyone end up picking the X up at some point? If you've been holding out on it, better get 'em while they're still hot.
