SNK 40th Anniversary Collection Announced for Switch

A ton of games announced in a new trailer for SNK 40th Anniversary Collection on Nintendo Switch.

The era of arcade games have been ruled by many of the classic titles from SNK and they sure can take some pride on it. Also, they are doing great from the beginning of this year with their release of Art of Fighting Anthology, Samurai Shodown V Special, The King of Fighters '97 Global Match and The King of Fighters '98. It's been 40 years for the Japanese game developer company, which was founded back in 1978 and a definitive collection of their games are releasing this year.

Let's take a look at all the amazing titles already announced for the collection in an announcement trailer.




SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is promised to bring some of the classic titles from SNK will be debuting to Nintendo Switch on November 13. Currently, a fraction of the actual list of games has been revealed but to tell you the truth, these aren't any titles that you were very excited about. Most of these titles are from before Neo Geo entered the scene for arcade and NES days. However, we still have to wait for the rest of the list and what we found for now are mentioned below.

  • Alpha Mission
  • Athena
  • Crystalis
  • Ikari Warriors
  • Victory Road
  • Ikari 2: The Rescue
  • Guerrilla War
  • P.O.W
  • Prehistoric Isle
  • Psycho Soldier
  • Street Smart
  • TNK 3
  • Vanguard

Porting old games to console has one big perk over everything and it is that nostalgia factor that drives players to it. Now that it is heading towards Switch, gamers can take it anywhere they want and enjoy it in high-resolution. Courtesy of NIS America, a special edition containing an official hardcover art book and a music collection from game soundtracks comes in a collector’s box for only $64.99. If you want one of those, you might as well as pre-order it right now to reserve your copy.

The list may be a major let-down for fans of Metal Slug, The Last Blade or Samurai Shodown series but their official website says, they will announce more games in forthcoming days. If not those big-name games, then at least Garou: Mark of the Wolves should make it to the list then. Otherwise, it would seem that in the name of an anniversary collection, they are simply trying to rip-off players with some of their old-school games that many don't even care about and make a quick buck.

Last year, King of Fighters XIV from one of their flagship series has done exceptionally well and SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is also expected to win the hearts over. Considering how they have decided to port their popular games to modern day consoles, SNK is slowly coming back to the game and probably would return to take their throne in fighting games genre once again whether or not SNK 40th Anniversary Collection turns out to be a hit.

Long anticipated news on a Resident Evil 2 remake project has been keeping fans of the survival horror game on the edge of their seats for some time now. One moment, we hear it is in development and the next it gets cancelled but that fiasco has come to an end now. Developer/publisher Capcom has finally came clear about the remake during PlayStation's E3 2018 press conference by releasing a new 3D-rendered announcement trailer that looks absolutely fantastic.

Witness how it all became legendary and genre-defining with one of the horror masterpiece of all time in Resident Evil 2 E3 trailer.




The story of the game revolves around a fictional American suburb of Raccoon City, where reports of bizarre murders start emerging from. The horrors of Spencer mansion on Arklay Mountains has now come out and reached the neighboring city. Residents and tourists are all caught with their lives amidst flesh-eating living nightmares. Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield happens to be there desperately trying to make it out alive from the reach of a devastated Raccoon City.

This is how the saga of Resident Evil spawned through a sequel 20 years ago and released on PlayStation. The remake revisits all those locations players are familiar with and plants a few surprises for new and old RE fans. Most importantly, it is a great escape from the fixed camera angles that used to annoy everyone and imply the advance graphical superiority of today's technology. A new over-the-shoulder camera mode will be included, which will surely aid the players in skimpy areas.

The original 1998 version was one of Capcom’s best-selling games of all time and it is only fitting that it got a visual upgrade along with some gameplay changes. However, make no mistake of thinking it as a simple remake project that is about re-creating RE2 as it was. In fact, the revolutionary RE Engine which brought us the terrifying experience of Resident Evil 7. Those details on decaying skins of rotten zombies look even lifelike and that just increases the scare factor of the game.

When Raccoon City drowned into anarchy and madness due to a sudden epidemic, Leon arrived to report for duty on his first day on job while bio organic weapons (B.O.W.s) were running rampant. The same day, Claire came seeking his brother Chris Redfield at Raccoon City Police Department but he left the city by then and almost everyone she found was dead.

Both characters will cross paths and are playable in their own separate stories that offers unique perspective at what is going on. Leon learns about the undead menace when he witnesses an officer killed by one of them. Claire seems to have came across little Sherry Birkin and her mother Annette had her fair share of footage. Although we got a momentary glimpse of what seems like a transformed William Birkin or maybe a Tyrant was shown but we missed Ada Wong this time.

The game will cost $59.99 only and reports of visuals being in 4K were heard but any specific details on that statement were not found yet. If you happen to be one of the fans who were disappointed with RE7 because it was devoid of the aspects of the originals, then RE2 remake is just your ticket to head back to classic, because Resident Evil probably never looked this good before.

Halo Infinite Announced

Halo Infinite trailer at E3 2018 is bringing back Master Chief once again to finish the fight to save humanity.

Not every day you get to show your games at a stage like E3 2018 and so, Microsoft took this opportunity very seriously on Xbox E3 2018 presentation. What better way to do that than revealing a new entry from one of your biggest franchises and what bigger series there is other than Halo? With Halo Infinite, our beloved hero Master Chief returns in action after a while. Developer 343 Industries have brought back the series once again and the next chapter begins from here.

A new ecosystem of beasts and nature completely takes over the world left behind by men as we don't see any of them. While a squad of three soldiers approaches with one of their wounded companion, we see Master Chief's iconic helm in his hand in frame. Then he plugged Cortana into the back of his helmet and then it slowly cuts into the title card.

Even though they previously hinted of making a comeback with Halo series, both developer 343 Industries and Microsoft Studios has been quite about when they are going to make a show on it for some time. Thankfully, it is finally returning to its former glory and will establish that once it finally releases. Aside from slightly changing their art style and color patterns, the game has moved to a newer Slipspace Engine this time and players get to spend more time with their favorite green Spartan.

In a time when Microsoft is desperately in need for some exclusive games for their consoles to survive the market competition as they are being manhandled by Sony and ridiculed by fans, an exclusive Xbox line-up like Halo can probably turn the table for them. So, the upcoming title is definitely a breath of fresh air in this time of crisis for the publisher. The story of the game centers around Master Chief but this teaser was to actually demonstrate their powerful new game engine.

RAGE 2 Officially Announced

It was only last week, when a Walmart’s listing leak lead to the news that sequel to 2011's first-person shooter from id Software and Bethesda Softworks is actually happening. Instead of shooting down the idea, they playfully trolled back at Walmart Canada by offering notes to improve design efforts on their placeholder listings. Then they started posting teaser image that clearly said RAGE 2 is coming until the reveal trailer got leaked as well just before the official release and now we are here.

The live-action cinematic trailer showcases a newly revamped world of RAGE 2 without hinting any clue about the game's plot.

The trailer looks like a hybrid clone made out of Mad Max: Fury Road movie and Borderlands game. Of course it officially confirms that we sure are getting a sequel to RAGE but at this point there was very little to not know about that. At first thanks to that Walmart listing, then Bethesda decides to be a sport by teasing for a few days on social media and then the leaked clip has done it all. Still, the official clip is a bit longer than the one which was leaked earlier but later taken down from YouTube.

If not all but many fans who waited for official confirmation for this project may have expected what they just saw, because a couple of punk-ass dancing and jumping around with big-guns amidst a confusing, pink atmosphere doesn't remind them of anything from the first game of the series. Since RAGE was developed to showcase their new game engine, perhaps the developer and publisher agreed upon going for a soft-reboot approach with this one like they did with Doom, Prey and Wolfenstein II.

If they are truly aiming for a revamp as the changes suggest, it may even turn out to be successful considering their previous track record.

In the trailer's closing card, they mentioned that a gameplay reveal will take place tomorrow, May 15.

Fortnite Season 4 Announced

For months, Fortnite players were chasing tails after a "comet theory" that eventually came to be true. Season 3 is ending very soon as developers Epic Games and People Can Fly are bringing Season 4 of the game along with updates for Save the World and Fortnite Battle Royale. Just like players have been predicting of a new season for some time now, a comet crash from outer space in the middle of game’s map will bring massive change in overall.

While all the crazy theories were flying around about what the mysterious comet is going to do or where it is about to crash, Epic Games remained silent and now, they are officially announcing Fortnite Season 4 with a new trailer.

Upon witnessing the trailer above, we know now that where things are going to pick up from in Season 4. The theorized comet will crash on and destroy Dusty Depot, which will be then called Dusty Divot in the aftermath of impact. Previously, everyone has predicted that the collision would target the Tilted Towers but ultimately, that was not the case. Considering it was a pretty big meteor, there are craters everywhere of the island where players are.

RELATED: Fortnite Takes Over Twitch

A new location in the Northeastern part of map called Risky Reels is introduced, where Battle Royale participants used to have their drive-in movie theater before the comet crashed. On the plus side, you got a brand-new site to explore now and the downside is that it cannot be used as a landing spot anymore. Full details of these changes are all pointed out in Patch Notes released by Epic Games and you can go ahead to check out all fine points yourself as well.

Mark of the Ninja Remastered for Nintendo Switch

Many have probably forgotten Klei Entertainment's side-scrolling action stealth game Mark of the Ninja, which came out in 2012. This indie game was critically acclaimed and had intense popularity on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade. The title is now heading for Nintendo Switch as Mark of the Ninja Remastered after six years of its initial release. Recently, Nintendo had an indie-focused Switch presentation, where the game was revealed.

Expected to arrive this fall, Mark of the Ninja Remastered was the highlight among the other few brand-new titles selected to port or remake for Switch in 2018. Since the Nintendo Switch version is a re-master, we can expect some high-end details of the graphics for the hybrid console. The original title was published by Microsoft Studios, which was the main reason for the game remaining an exclusive for PC and Xbox 360.

Below is the announcement trailer from Nintendo, showcasing the quick glimpse of the upcoming Mark of the Ninja Remastered for Nintendo Switch in a short video clip.




With the Switch port on the way, this will be the first time when this awesome action stealth game from Klei Entertainment will be available on a different console. Mark of the Ninja is not your typical Ninja warrior taking down horde of bad-guys with his sick moves or shooting stars. Instead, the game has a good back-story for players who care for some aside from some hide and seek sport with your enemies. Plus, stealth has a major part in your overall gameplay.

We certainly have high hopes that this great game will silently sneak into the Nintendo eShop soon and make everyone addictive for the experience regardless of veterans and newbie. The way Nintendo's next-gen portable console is making a progress in market; it was a great strategic move for Klei Entertainment to bring one of their greatest games on board. This also raises our hopes for seeing Shank and Shank 2 from the same studio ported for the platform.
