SNK 40th Anniversary Collection PS4 Release Features All 24 Retro Hits

Celebrating four decades of legendary Japanese game studio Shin Nihon Kikaku, the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection comes packaged with a grand total of 24 retro classics.

This includes both console and arcade versions of many of these titles, enhanced with a number of mod cons, such as updated graphics, rewind and save functionality, and redesigned control schemes.

There’s also the SNK Museum. Featuring a range of high definition artwork and never before seen promotional material, the SNK Museum gives players the opportunity to “explore the legacy of one of Japan’s leading developers.”

The games featured in the collection, meanwhile (that’s the exciting bit, after all), are as follows:

  • Alpha Mission
  • Athena
  • Beast Busters
  • Bermuda Triangle
  • Chopper I
  • Crystalis
  • Fantasy
  • Ikari Warriors
  • Victory Road
  • Ikari III: The Rescue
  • Guerrilla War
  • Munch Mobile
  • OZMA Wars
  • Paddle Mania
  • P.O.W
  • Prehistoric Isle
  • Psycho Soldier
  • SAR: Search and Rescue
  • Sasuke vs Commander
  • Street Smart
  • Time Soldiers
  • T.N.K III
  • Vanguard
  • World Wars

You can see a couple of the titles in action in the gloriously cheesy retro trailer embedded below.

Price points for the PS4 version of the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection (both digital and physical) have yet to be provided. Although, if the Switch is any indication, we can probably expect it to go for something in the region of £35.
