SNK Playmore announced today with a press release the launch of “SNK Entertainment,” a wholly owned company dedicated to achieve sustainable growth and to maximize the brand power of the SNK Group.

SNK Entertainment will work on contract development focused on video and graphics production, taking care of the licensing of the over 200 intellectual properties owned by the SNK group, including The King of Fighters and Metal Slug, and other activities related to internet and digital entertainment.

At the helm of the new subsidiary will be SNK Playmore USA CEO Koichi Toyama.

Saw this on Famitsu and looked around for a translation. Found one on a banned site.

SNK going in. I like the sound of this. Sounds like they're fairly serious about the future of their IPs.

They should probably be looking into getting their back catalogue up on modern consoles. At least PS4.

I could go for Metal Slug 8, too.

Looks like it.

I'm really loving this new direction theyre taking. It really looks like they're making a bigtime return what with the doubling down on their game IPs. Plus there was a rumour of a new Samurai Shodown.

They were recently acquired by a Chinese company that bought them to re-focus on licensing and key IP (and took them out of the pachinko business).

Didn't their Chinese buyer say they saw SNK IPs having franchise potential that could rival Marvel? It'd be hilarious if one thing led to another and we got Marvel vs SNK instead of MvC4.

Same here. I just hope they can get themselves out there again so that when you're trying to look up SNK stuff you don't get bombarded with Attack on Titan stuff.

SNK please also keep doing the Pachinko thing though. I'm afraid if they just go all in on gaming they are just going to end up out of business.

It won't harm us to have some brands revived.
I also hope that making their games available in Digital Download (eShop?) is also part of the plan.

Pachinko is a dying business that is only profitable for the biggest players; they're not leaving because they suddenly remembered they love games, they remembered because they can't compete and it's not worth the investment to even try.

Ugh, somebody please put together the sprite of Morden fist-pumping for these occasions.

EDIT:



Well, I tried. I simply cropped the sprites from a sprite sheet, hence the jitter. It's super-small because resizing it merely highlighted the flaws, and I was too lazy to add his tank. I encourage somebody with better gif-making ability to do it themselves.

Yeah I mentioned in a chat that "SNK" rebranded and they thought I meant attack on titan.

Anyway Marvel vs SNK when

Exactly, but I feel they are going to stick to 3D it's cheaper to make.

Fund it Playmore! I think they'll more than likely do a KOF anime first since its probably their best selling title. An anime could actually boost KOF popularity in the west if they can make a hit anime.
