Thinking of getting into Neo Geo games to add to my retro collection. American systems are ridiculously expensive, but I have been seeing Japanese consoles on ebay for much cheaper. Are they region locked, or will any system play any region?

There is no region lock.

Japanese games will play on a US system and vice versa.

But don't they need some kind of region mod? Like if you play an American game on a Japan system, the game will still be in Japanese?

An American game on a Japanese system will still be in English. A Japanese game on an American system will still be in Japanese.
