We'll travel back to 1988, but we'll need to make a pitstop in 1997 along the way.

The NIS America/SNK partnership has expanded in an unexpected fashion.

NISA will be publishing a SNK 40th Anniversary Collection this fall, with the Switch being the first console announced. The collection will focus on earlier titles in the SNK catalogue, and will be co-developed with Digital Eclipse (Mega Man Legacy Collection) for 1080p graphics and additional features.

The full list of included games has not been announced, though several games will have both their arcade and home conversions included. The known games include:

  • Crystalis
  • Ikari Warriors*
  • Ikari III: The Rescue*
  • Athena*
  • Alpha Mission*
  • Victory Road*
  • P.O.W*
  • Prehistoric Isle
  • Psycho Soldier
  • Street Smart
  • TNK III*
  • Vanguard*
  • Guerilla War

Was an MSRP for the standard edition announced?

Nice that SNK is shining a light on their earlier history before they became a big name in the arcade fighting game scene. Seems like they are putting in some work to make the games look and play their best. They should throw in the Game Biy Color version of Crystalis as a bonus (even if it is inferior to the NES version).

Um, what are the asterisks supposed to indicate?
