3416 - SNK 40th Anniversary Collection Coming To Nintendo Switch Fall 2018

Now this is a nice addition to the Switch library and a fairly unique one as well, as it will feature SNK's games catalogue pre-Neo Geo. So among other games that will be announced along the way, you're getting all three Ikari Warrior games, Athena, Psycho Soldier, and even the NES classic, Chrysalis! Not only that, but certain arcade titles will also include their NES ports as well, so you can compare and contrast between the two versions, which is a nice little feature.

Spoiler: Some of the NES versions are total garbage. I'm looking at you, Athena.

Yes, there was that SNK Arcade Classics Zero that came out for PSP years ago, but that was a Japan-only release. The closest we got were the scant number of SNK titles released as digital-only PSP mini releases for a couple bucks a pop. This collection seems to be the better value and it's also exclusive to Switch, so folks who are into SNK and like their old classics will have a reason to jump on Nintendo's hybrid console thing.

See? Lots of good stuff on Switch and something for me to look forward to when I eventually pick one up.
