Are you a fan of the Neo Geo Pocket, but have a hard time actually tracking down all the games you want to play on it? If so, you’ll be happy to hear that we now carry a flash cart for SNK’s under-appreciated handheld!

The NeoPocket GameDrive from Retro HQ is a custom flash cart made specifically for the Neo Geo Pocket and Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld systems. What that means is that this is a single cartridge that you can plug an SD card into, and play your legally obtained ROMs on your original hardware, without the need for emulation!

This little guy is 100% compatible with the entire Neo Geo Pocket and Neo Geo Pocket Color libraries. It also fully supports game saves and link play. Basically, if you can do it with an original cart, you can do it with the Neo Geo Pocket SD GameDrive.

Probably the coolest thing of all though, is that the GameDrive supports homebrew titles. So now you can play new, original games created just for the Neo Geo Pocket handhelds on original hardware!

How it works is, the flash cart pulls from two different menus. One menu is for the contents of your SD card. From here, you’ll choose which games you want to flash and send to the second menu, which is for the games that are saved directly on the cart itself.

The unit holds 15 megs of memory for a small selection of games you can pull from immediately. These can be swapped in and out as often as you like from your SD card. How convenient! 

And in case you couldn't tell from the pictures, we’re offering our exclusive Deluxe Editions, complete with BitBox game cases, stickers, and more.

If you have any questions, we’re more than happy to answer. Now go enjoy those wonderful clicky joysticks with a brand new flash cart!

Get yours here!
