Do you want Haohmaru, Nakoruru or Ukyo?

Samurai Shodown is set to make its big return after over a decade with its new rebooted fighting game coming next month, and it appears as though those in charge are looking to celebrate its long history with some special hardware.

SNK recently announced three Samurai Shodown-themed limited edition Neo Geo Mini consoles designed around Haohmaru, Nakoruru and Ukyo that will feature 40 classic SNK arcade games — including a ton of fighting games.

The new version of the mini console is going to cost 15,000 yen or around $137 USD, and only 20,000 units of each version are scheduled to be produced. Included with every Samurai Shodown Neo Geo Mini is the console, power cable, two controllers, an HDMI cable, two character stickers and four character cards.

Unlike most recent classic consoles from bigger companies, the Neo Geo Mini is designed like a mini arcade cabinet that includes a small LCD screen to play games without the need for a TV to plug into.

SNK first released their Neo Geo Mini consoles last year, and they were apparently so successful that the company has decided to produce new Neo Geo consoles as well as the special releases of the unique hardware.

Pre-orders for Japan are set to open up on May 16 and expected to release on the same day as the new Samurai Shodown on June 27 though no western release plans have been revealed at this time. You can check out the special Neo Geo Mini consoles below along with their game lineup.
