The SNK 40th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION is Coming to Nintendo Switch and It's Worth it for GUERRILLA WAR Alone..Written by James Zahn
Retro gaming is showing no signs of slowing down, and as the archives continue to be mined, I keep being reminded of games that took up a lot of time during my youth. On November 13, the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is coming to Nintendo Switch, bringing a host of classic games from SNK's early days into the new realm. So far, 13 games have been announced, and while more are to be revealed, one game does it for me: GUERRILLA WAR. It came out in 1987 as an arcade game, later being ported to the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and I spent a ton of time playing it. I don't even care what other games are on it - I'm sold. Check out the trailer below, and pre-order now via GameStop or Amazon (both affiliates)
