Eight SNK Arcade Classic to Grace the PlayStation Network

July 19, 2011 Written by Anthony Severino

Listen up kiddies. Back when I was a young boy, many moons ago, there were these things called “arcades” (pronounced ärˈkāds). They’re still around today, but almost nobody goes to them anymore. Many of the memorable coin-operated (yes, you had to insert coins to play – no new-fangled debit cards accepted) were made by SNK. Now, decades later, SNK Playmore is bringing these classics of yesteryear to the PlayStation Network.

OK, so maybe you remember arcades, but chances are, you don’t remember these titles. They’re even a little hazy for me. That doesn’t mean that oldies can’t be goodies, and if that’s the case, then these are really, really good.

SNK Playmore has announced that not one, but eight pre-NEOGEO era SNK classics, will be arriving in today’s PlayStation Store update. The following titles will be available as PlayStation miniS, and playable on both the PSP and PS3.

  • Ozma Wars
  • Sasuke vs Commander
  • Vanguard
  • Marvin’s Maze
  • Hal 21
  • Athena
  • Ikari Warriors
  • Guerrilla War

Each title will be available for $2.99 each, but Guerrilla War will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
