On top of that, they've already been licensed by Nintendo to make GBA games!
When SNK closed up its American divison three years ago, everyone in the videogame community was saddened. SNK's home division bit the dust, while the entire Japanese company was to be eaten up by Playmore, who now owns all SNK properties.
Three years later, Game Daily runs an interview with Ben Herman, the new head of Playmore's new American division, SNK NEOGEO USA Consumer Corp. Yes ladies and gentlemen, SNK is back in the United States!
Here's a small piece from GD's feature:
SNK NEOGEO USA Consumer has already been licensed by Nintendo to deliver Game Boy Advance games. PlayStation 2, PS one, GameCube and Xbox licensing deals are also being conjsidered. "Whether it's the current generation (of consoles) that we develop for, or its new platforms in 2004 or 2005, we are going to develop for them," said Herman. "We make games in Japan for PS2, and we plan to convert them—and make others—for play here in the states."
Time for all you Neo-Geo lovers to get excited, because SNK will be at E3 showing off Metal Slug Advance and King of Fighters 2001, along with the first footage of SNK vs. Capcom Chaos.
