Neo Geo Pocket (NGP)
Neo Geo Pocket for monochrome handheld game consoles released by SNK. It was the first portable system and is part of the Neo Geo family. It debuted in Japan in late 1998 but never saw a Western release, being exclusive to Japan and smaller Asian markets such as Hong Kong.
The Neo Geo Pocket is considered an unsuccessful console. Lower-than-expected sales resulted in its cancellation in 1999 and was immediately replaced by the Neo Geo Pocket Color, a full color device to compete with the dominant Color Boy game, and which also saw a Western release. Although the system only had a short life, there have been some significant games released on the system, such as Samurai Shodown, and King of the Fighter R-1.
