On December 18, 2012 the SNK brand returns to the hardware market with the Neo Geo X, a licensed handheld the puts the company’s legendary arcade and home console in the palms of hardcore gamers. It’s remarkable that SNK and its new product are here considering the company’s troubled existence since the turn of the century. Many legacy game makers, after all, failed to weather the ever-changing video game landscape. For that alone SNK should be applauded even if it’s output isn’t as prolific as its incredible ’90s run.
As such, we’re devoting this week’s coverage to SNK and the many excellent series that its birthed including Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown, and The King of Fighters. We kick off this week’s Spread with a few articles pulled form our archives, but will add more content over the course of the week. Enjoy.
