News: 16 games for one low price.
SNK Playmore has announced they are bringing SNK Arcade Classics Volume 1 to the PS2 and PSP sometime in the first half of 2008. The collection will include 16 games spanning a variety of years. The list includes:
Art of Fighting - The first game in SNK's second fighting-game franchise, set in the same universe as Fatal Fury.
Baseball Stars 2 - The sequel to SNK's popular baseball arcade game.
Burning Fight - New York detectives battle organized crime in this fighter.
Fatal Fury - First released in 1991, Fatal Fury introduced the two-plane fighting system.
King of Fighters '94 - The first game in the popular King of Fighters series.
King of the Monsters - In King of the Monsters, giant monsters fight for power in epic battles.
Last Resort - A challenging futuristic shooter.
Magician Lord - Players help the wizard Elta save his homeworld in this platformer.
Metal Slug - Known for its humor and fast-moving gameplay, this run-and-gun sidescroller was the first in the popular series.
Neo Turf Masters - A golf game which debuted on the Neo Geo Pocket Color in 1999.
Samurai Shodown - Set in the 18th century, Samurai Shodown features bladed-weapon combat and an international cast of characters.
Sengoku - In Sengoku, players face off against undead feudal Japanese armies.
Shock Troopers - In this run-and-gun adventure, players save a scientist and his granddaughter from the Bloody Scorpions.
Super Sidekicks 3 - A soccer game featuring teams from all over the world.
Top Hunter - Bounty hunters protect colonists from space pirates in this futuristic action game.
World Heroes - This classic fighter pits players against historical figures in a tournament enabled by time travel.
It should also be noted that many of these games have already appeared on the Wii's Virtual Console, so I imagine it's only a matter of time until they're all added to the service.
