SNK Playmore

The SNK Playmore Corporation, responsible for developing The King of Fighters and Metal Slug, has decided to change its full name to SNK Corporation. The change will occur on December 1st, as they have announced on their website. With this change, they have the goal of returning to their “rich gaming history,” along with enhancing the corporate value.

SNK sent out this message regarding this change:

This change of corporation name to “SNK”, and slogan to “The Future Is Now” marks a return to SNK’s glorious gaming history. Through the huge success of many of its game franchises in the past, SNK is still a brand supported by countless fans from around the world to this day. The new corporation name chosen for this turning point, signifies both a return to the origins of SNK, and revival of our pioneer spirit to always offer long-time fans of SNK, as well as newcomers, entertainment of an even higher quality moving forward.

    I don’t particularly care about the name change, but SNK have been on point lately. Perhaps they’ll even make a new Metal Slug at some point.
