While we're awaiting Kuroko's playable appearance in Samurai Shodown (2019), SNK announced a brand new Special Edition Neo Geo Mini console. The fourth in the line of
SamSho-themed consoles, the "Kuroko Edition" NeoGeo Mini is appropriately an "all-black" design based on the series iconic umpire. The Special Edition comes with an HDMI cable, 2 gamepads, and Kuroko themed accessories (stickers, character card, and an anti-slide placemat for your console). Kuroko Edition also includes 7 unique
games over the original International version: KOF 2001, KOF 2002, King of the Monsters, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5, Shock Troopers, and Mutation Nation.
The nostalgia-infused console includes a total of 48 games, including 6 from the Samurai Shodown series. The Kuroko Special Edition is priced at 21,500 yen (about $200 USD) and will be released on September 30th, 2019.
