If the near-daily ACA NEOGEO
titles just aren't going far back enough for you, this should be welcome news. The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection
is coming to PlayStation 4 in just a few short months, bringing 24 arcade classics. NIS America announced the news and have invited players to share their first gaming memories with some of the included titles.
The collection has already been released on the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4 version is expected to include the same titles. Both arcade and console versions of some games will be available as well as personal leaderboards. All the mod-cons will be there too, including saves and rewinds. The PlayStation 4 version will include 4K resolution and redesigned control schemes to suit a modern pad. As you might expect there will be a Museum Mode exploring the storied history of SNK.
The list of games on PS4 has not been confirmed, but here's what was on the Switch version — it launched with 13 games with 11 more added in a later free update.
