posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Game software and hardware development company SNK announced on Thursday that as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations, it plans to release new game hardware that will feature popular Neo Geo titles. The company said it will reveal the titles included and the hardware's release period at a later date.
SNK stated it is producing the new hardware to thank fans who have supported game series such as The King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, and Metal Slug.
NIS America previously announced a separate SNK 40th anniversary project earlier this month. NISA will release a 40th Anniversary Collection game for the Nintendo Switch this fall. The collection features classic SNK games from the 1980s before the Neo Geo.
The game collection will allow players to rewind and save at any time, will feature upgraded graphics at 1080p resolution, and will feature redesigned control schemes. The game will also feature a Museum Mode that will feature HD artwork and original promotional assets.
