SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is a collection of classic games developed by SNK. The package was released in 2018 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the company that was founded in 1978 as Shin Nihon Kikaku Corporation.

Mechanics

The collection features a set of old games. Some of them are available in two versions – the one known from arcades and one from consoles. The developers implemented some improvements like the option to rewind the gameplay or to save the game at any point. The controls were also adapted to modern controllers. A Museum Mode was added – it features various graphics materials with the history of the company and its games.

Among the latter there are shooters like Alpha Mission from 1985 and Ikari Warriors from 1986, action platform game Athena also from 1986, beat ‘em up game Street Smart from 1989, and titles like Crystalis, Ikari III: The Rescue, Guerrilla War, P.O.W., Prehistoric Isle in 1930, Psycho Soldier, TNK III, Vanguard and Victory Road

Technical aspects

None of the games available in SNK 40th Anniversary Collection were improved when it comes to graphics or sounds. The only change is the fact that the collection supports 1080p resolution.
