SNK 40th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION is a great interactive museum of SNK’s history of their first games in the arcade and console.  It has wealth of cool content that includes concept arts, manuals, promotional assets, music and a amazing SNK Museum to explore the legacy of their timeline of releases from that time with wealth of information about their games. The only console RPG game they have ever made was the gem named Crystalis. It is available to play that most beloved fans of SNK enjoyed back in the day. It is the longest game they made at that time over 50 plus hours for their first RPG.


The games might not be all fun to play but it is a great collection game to own to see where SNK all started from before reaching the more popular IPs they did after this era. It has the great rewind features that all classic collections now include as well as save points at your pleasure. Newest feature to be added is that if your stuck on a section you may watch a perfect complete run of the game. Once it passes the part you were stuck on with a press of a button you may take over control or just watch the run to enjoy. This is the best Interactive videogame history collection at its finest. I hope they do one for their Neo Geo era as well.

SNK 40th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION was a great treat to see all the great information of this era of SNK that I have not played before this collection. Watching and playing these game showed me what they learn to create their most beloved IPs later on. As a piece of history this is a must have title for videogame fans of SNK. All titles run in their original form with options to enjoy. This was a perfect celebration for their 4oth anniversary for fans to pick up with variety of goods.
