14 0

Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown, Alpha Mission II, Fatal Fury all due soon

Over the past three years, Hamster has released a wide variety of classic coin-op hits for PS4 in its Arcade Archives line-up, and we’re excited to reveal our new ACA Neo Geo series that brings SNK’s beloved games back into your living room.

Since its debut in 1990, the Neo Geo enthused video game fans from around the globe with games that were “bigger, badder, and better” than anything else in the arcade or at home… and you’ll finally have perfect conversions of some of these legendary titles.

The first game in the ACA Neo Geo series is The King of Fighters ’94, which launches 27th October on PS4!

The King of Fighters ’94 originally launched on Neo Geo way back in 1994, injecting new life into the fighting game genre by mixing popular characters from SNK’s Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and Ikari Warriors franchises into one massive invitational hand-to-hand tournament.

TITLE

The King of Fighters ’94’s unique three-on-three battles and intricate special move systems had a massive impact on subsequent fighting games, and it gave birth to an ongoing saga that continues to this day with 2016’s amazing PS4 offering, The King of Fighters XIV.

The following games will launch in 2016:*

  • Metal Slug
  • Samurai Shodown
  • Alpha Mission II
  • Fatal Fury
  • World Heroes

TITLE

And the following games will arrive in early 2017:*

  • Neo Turf Masters
  • Nam-1975

TITLE

Hamster will continue to work closely with SNK Playmore to not only choose games in the most famous franchises, but also to shed light on some cult classics and hidden gems. Stay tuned for more on the ACA Neo Geo line-up!
