The Neo Geo Mini was leaked online last week, and it now appears that those leaks are very much legit now that SNK has officially unveiled the small classic console in celebration of the company's 40th anniversary.

The small console is modeled after SNK's Neo Geo arcade cabinets complete with a 3.5 inch screen, arcade stick and classic-styled buttons; it will also come packaged with 40 titles built into the system though those will be announced at a later date.

Two versions of the Mini will be released with one releasing to Japan and other Asian territories that has a more colorful design to look like the Neo Geo MVS cabinets while the international version will look more like the console. There is no word yet as to whether the two versions will have different selections of games or feature the same roster.

The Neo Geo Mini will stand just over six-inches tall and weigh around 1.3 lb/ 600 grams. It also features an HDMI output to play on your monitor or TV, a headphone jack, a power supply cable (AC adapter not included) and two slots on the side to plug in extra controllers (which were shown in the leak, but not in the reveal).

As for the release date and pricing for the mini console, SNK did not give any details beyond the new Neo Geo coming sometime this year though one of the leakers expects the system to cost $100-150.

You can check out images of both the Asian and international versions of the system below and the rumored list of games for the Neo Geo Mini after the jump.
