The games will arrive in December and bring the total number of games in the collection to 24.

NIS America today announced six more games that will be joining SNK 40th Anniversary Collection as free DLC. The Nintendo Switch game is due to arrive on November 13, 2018, both digitally and in fine physical form.

The six titles announced today were:

  • Bermuda Triangle

  • Paddle Mania

  • ZMA Wars

  • Beast Busters

  • SAR: Search and Rescue

  • World Wars
Five previous titles were also announced as free DLC for the bundle, on October 17. Those titles are:
  • Munch Mobile

  • Fantasy

  • Sasuke vs. Commander

  • Chopper I

  • Time Soldiers
Nine of the eleven DLC titles will be added as an automatic patch on December 11, while Beast Busters and SAR: Search and Rescue will be accessible as a free DLC bundle from the game's store page.

When the game arrives in stores, it will include the following lineup on the cartridge:
  • Alpha Mission

  • Athena

  • Crystalis

  • Ikari Warriors

  • Ikari Warriors: Victory Road

  • Ikari III: The Rescue

  • Guerrilla War

  • P.O.W.

  • Prehistoric Isle

  • Pscyho Soldier

  • StreetSmart


  • Vanguard
A lot of the titles above were available first in arcades and then were released as home conversions, often to the NES. The collection will in many cases include both editions. The compilation is being put together by the recently revamped Digital Eclipse, which is the team responsible for the first Mega Man Anniversary Collection on modern consoles, and I believe for the Disney Afternoon Collection.

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection carries an MSRP of $39.99 USD and ships with arcade and console versions of overdrive's favorite game of all time, Athena, included right on the cartridge (it may not actually be his absolute favorite game). What more could you possibly want? Preorder it today!

Whoa! Guerrilla War and Street Smart bring back memories! You just keep selling me on that Switch console, Jason. It's starting to work.

If covering the Switch games and news that interest me leads to more people taking a look at potentially purchasing the platform, which is already my personal pick for best Nintendo console since the SNES... then so be it. I'm willing to live with that!

It had its chance and mostly blew it. I can shed only so many tears for what might have been. And anyway, I do still hope to buy a lot more Wii U games before all is said and done. Even if I don't wind up doing that, I've already supported it way more than most folks did!
