"The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection will include at least 13 titles, some of which have both arcade and console versions. In publisher NIS America’s announcement, the company said more titles are to come, but here’s what’s confirmed so far:

  • Alpha Mission (console/arcade)
  • 
Athena (console/arcade)
  • 
Crystalis (console)
  • 
Ikari Warriors (console/arcade)
  • 
Ikari Warriors 2: Victory Road (console/arcade)
  • Ikari Warriors 3: The Rescue (console/arcade)
  • Guerrilla War (console/arcade)
  • P.O.W. (console/arcade)
  • Prehistoric Isle in 1930 (arcade)
  • Psycho Soldier (arcade)
  • Street Smart (arcade)
  • TNK III (console/arcade)
  • Vanguard (arcade)

The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection will include a few modern conveniences, like the option to “rewind and save at any time” and “redesigned control schemes for a modern feel.” The compilation will also include an “SNK Museum” that promises a look at the history of the developer through high-definition artwork and promotional materials."[1]

The Limited Edition is also available here: store.nisaeurope.com/col…tch


Not sure it's worth £60 though. Then again, if it is truly limited, it may rocket in value at some point with it being SNK.

Yeah, I was very keen on this so when the LE went on sale I tried to mention it here some time ago, but now I cannot believe there is an SE version for this too. I think sub £30 for this is a great price.

I've pre ordered it but honestly might just 'switch' to the regular version. I guess it depends on what games they add.

- and by that I mean, whether it becomes like a definitive collection of games that are worthy of a special limited edition. Or just a load of great games that I want to play.

SNK is massive blind spot in my gaming repertoire, anyone care to enlighten me? Always just assumed they did fighters which I'm not a fan of
Viewpoint. All I want from SNK is Viewpoint.

Apparently it's in some kind of legal limbo with another publisher.

They are mainly known for fighting games but they have done a few RPG's such as Dark Arms.
Ive missed these types of compilations in recent years. On PS2 there were loads: Capcom Classics, Taito Legends 1&2, Tecmo Classics, 3(!) volumes of Midway. Happy days!

@mixmixi that isn't Ikari Warriors on the Amstrad CPC is it??
Only has 13 games none king of fighters or metal slug

I find the potential of this '40th Anniversary collection' very exciting, considering 'SNK Arcade Classics' on PS2/Wii had 16 really good games.

Day one purchase for me.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…._1


my guess is everything from the “zero” will be included but VOL one are already on switch single purchase I believe so I doubt many will feature - maybe who knows

I think most people will expect Metal Slug at the very least.

Then I hope some side scrolling beat em ups.

And again, SNK = fighters, so you've gotta get some King of Fighters on there.

I'd love King of Monsters and Baseball Stars is still a great game (2020 baseball as well).

There's so many, I hope for mostly NeoGeo games to be honest, as they stand up brilliantly today.

Just as well I don't have a wife as I went for the Collectors Edition The other day I received Human Fall Flat and The Flame and Flood from Super Rare Games. The documentation mentioned they plan to do a Switch game every month which is manageable for me collecting. I just worry Limited Run will do them every week which I couldn't afford!

"The compilation focuses on the company’s games released during the 1980s — the pre-Neo Geo era."

LRG is releasing on open preorders. That said they are currently on a 2 per month basis. Not sure if they are planning to release more. All I want and care is for them to drop the numbers on PS4 and Vita so I could catch up with my debts, lol.

It is crazy how many PlayStation games they do Obviously makes them more money but less special as a collector if there are too many! The open pre-orders for the Switch games is handy for me as I have until the 7th to purchase Mercenary Kings and Flinthook.

Yeah and more crazy is that I have been buying all them until now. I yelled a lot at them and they have reduced the numbers now (or at least it was like this during April).
