Virtua Fighter?

The *arcade* version of Virtua Fighter? Emulated on an SoC? Not holding my breath on that one.

I want one. I don't know why, I dip into looking at the China things and never buy as they never have everything right.

In. The. Bin Game Gear Micro!

They've gone to town on this. 36 games, HDMI out, detachable sticks and pads, menu music by Hiro, made with the same resin material as the cab.

Here's an image that gives an idea of actual size.

It's basically shelf fodder. Neither the screen or the controls look great. You can plug external controllers and have HDMI video out but that entirely misses the point of it.
I'll probably get one. :awe:

My Kids complained about that when they both got a Neo Geo Mini and were not able to play together. When you think about it, it is a odd thing there is no such option.

No doubt this will have cramped controls, **** screen, poor emulation. Might as well pay aliexpress to dump some plastic **** in the ocean and save the trouble of taking it in the house first.

Sold.

If it can play Virtua Fighter, it might be a bit more meaty than the current Minis.
Retroarch should run pretty well ;)
