The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection

NiS America has announced that The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection will get a  Nintendo Switch release later this year.

The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection squeezes thirteen classic – or at least old – SNK games onto one sour-tasting game card. Among the included titles are some bona-fide retro treats, such as Ikari WarriorsTNK III, and Crystalis. For many games, both the arcade, and console editions are included.

Each game also features a range of modern, quality-of-life concessions, such as 1080p resolution, updated control schemes, and – in a welcome acknowledgement of some games’ difficulty – a rewind feature.

The compilation also features a Museum Mode which promises to contain a wealth of high-definition artwork, and original promotional assets.

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.
