Funny Neo Geo Mini Trailer Teaches You the Joys of the Start and Select Buttons

SNK released a new trailer of the cutesy micro-console Neo Geo Mini, and I don't know if I'm endeared, amused, or terrified.

Today SNK released a brand new trailer of its upcoming classic console, the Neo Geo Mini.

The trailer features a bored wife that purchases a Neo Geo Mini and gets engrossed with it until her husband finally comes back and she gets to crush him at the original The King of Fighters.

The line are certainly a little cheesy, with all the praising of two-meter cables (sold separately) or “The controller even has start and select buttons! I bet those come in handy!” Yet, they kind of make the whole thing cute and endearing… I guess.

That aside, you’ll quite possibly recognize the voices. The wife is played by super-popular voice actress Kana Hanazawa (Mayuri Shiina in Steins;Gate, Marie in Persona 4 Golden, and Rinoa in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT) who is definitely using her Mayuri voice for this one. The husband is played by Seiichiro Yamashita, who played Oskar Behlmer in Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book. 

Feel free to explore the joys of the start and select buttons in the trailer below.

The classic mini console released in Japan in July, while the release date of the international version has not yet been announced. If you want to learn more about it features and the pre-loaded games, you can check out our dedicated article.
