NIS America confirm the Nintendo Switch release date for the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection.
The upcoming Nintendo Switch anthology of SNK console and arcade games has been confirmed for release on November 13, 2018 in North America. It will be released in Europe on November 16, and arrive in Australia and New Zealand on November 23, 2018.
The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection will feature at least 13 timeless, erm, classics, with more retro titles to be announced before launch. Each game will have updated controls, and be presented in 1080p.
In a concession to modern gaming sensibilities, an instant rewind feature will be available to help players through some of the collection’s trickier moments.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
