At this point, there’s nary a ’90s console that hasn’t gotten a mini-revival, packed with the classic titles you enjoyed in the 16-bit era. The SNK NEOGEO Mini Samurai Shodown is the definitive edition of the home arcade system.

There’s already an SNK NEOGEO Mini available, and it’s a glorious little system. However, if you were one of the few who shunned the glow of the Sega Genesis or the clarion call of the SNES, there’s a chance you were a button-mashing fighting game fan ducking it out with friends on the SNK NEOGEO like Samurai Shodown. This limited edition console comes three colors, which pay homage to three classic Samurai Shodown fighters Haohmaru (White), Nakoruru (red), and Ukyo Tachibana (blue).

Each console comes with two controls and an arcade cabinet-shaped console that works either portably or plugged into a television or monitor via HDMI. That, and a collectible character sticker corresponding with the color of the console. The console also comes packed with 40 classic SNK titles including:
