|System||Neo Geo Pocket|
The Neo Geo Pocket was SNK's first hand held video game system, released in Japan in late 1998. Lower than expected sales resulted in its discontinuation in 1999, and was immediately succeeded by the Neo Geo Pocket Color. The system only had a retail release within the Japan and Hong Kong market.
Though the system enjoyed only a short life, there were some significant games released on the system such as Samurai Shodown, and King of Fighters R-1. The Neo Geo Pocket Color game library is mostly forward compatible with the Neo Geo Pocket, meaning that the majority of the newer color games can play on the Neo Geo Pocket. There are however exceptions.
