Digital Eclipse and publisher Other Ocean have launched the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection on the Xbox One today, allowing Xbox owners to return to a bygone era.

It should be noted that it is available only as a digital download in the Microsoft Store on the Xbox One.

The SNK 40th Anniversary Collection contains 25 titles from another time long gone. However, it includes both arcade and console versions for many of them. The remastered games in this collection include 24 titles. Among them are the following retro games:

For the Xbox version of the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, they have also added one more title that is exclusive to the Xbox version of the SNK collection. That game is Baseball Stars. This new exclusive title in the Xbox version may annoy some fans who already own the collection on a different console, but it is what it is. This retro games collection is rated “T for Teen”, and has a price tag of $39.99. You can find out more at the official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
