Tommo has responded to SNK Playmore's recent termination of the Neo Geo X Gold licensing agreement. The company asserts it performed all obligations under the contract and is "disappointed by SNK's sudden and unjustified termination of the agreement." Tommo intends to continue supporting the line of products and demands SNK Playmore recant.
