There are some new developments in the Tommo VS. SNK bout. Last week SNK PLAYMORE posted a Cease and desist order against the manufacturing company, Tommo, for their support and marketing of the NEOGEO X. Today, Tommo states they will continue to promote and sell the handheld system with no intention of obeying this “Wrongful termination claim by SNK.”
Tommo denies any breach of contract that should prevent them from continuing sales until the agreed upon date in 2016.
Jonathn Wan, CEO of TOMMO, INC. says “We’re continuing to sell NEOGEO X products, including the NEOGEO X GOLD System, Arcade Stick, MEGA PACK Volume 1 and Classics Volumes 1-5. The license agreement which allows Tommo to sell and market these products remains in effect.”
A resopnse from SNK PLAYMORE regarding Tommo’s refusal to comply has yet to surface. At least for now, the NEOGEO X will continue being sold at retail stores and online.
