Though rumors about SNK Playmore's future hint at some possible troubles, we can at least look forward to enjoying re-releases from the company's arcade/pre-Neo Goo days, thanks to a new PSP compilation titled SNK Arcade Classics 0.

Along with featuring 20 SNK titles like Psycho Soldier, Ikari Warriors, and Athena (full game list and awesome Japanese boxart after the break), the collection offers a "Gallery" mode with extra illustrations and other materials from the featured games.

SNK Arcade Classics 0 has been announced for only a Japanese release on April 21 so far, according to a report from Andriasang. There's hope for a North American version, though, as the ESRB rated the compilation several years ago.

  1. Ikari Warriors (1986)
  2. Dogosoken (1986)
