SNK Corporation has finally gone and updated their classic titles on iOS for iOS 11 and modern devices. If you aren’t familiar with the glorious SNK catalogue, they’ve done the lovely Metal Slug and The King of Fighters games on multiple platforms and have some real classics on iOS from those franchises and a few others. When the Appocalypse hit, we lost lots of classics on iOS and some still aren’t updated while others will remain unplayable on iOS 11 and later devices. A few hours ago, SNK pushed out updates for their classics on iOS and they are all ready for your new iPads and iPhones.
The full list includes:
- The King Of Fighters ’97 ($0.99)
- The King Of Fighters ’98 ($0.99)
- Samurai Shodown 2 ($0.99)
- Metal Slug 1 ($0.99)
- Metal Slug 2 ($0.99)
- Metal Slug X ($0.99)
- Metal Slug 3 ($0.99)
- Blazing Star ($0.99)
If you’re wondering which ones to get, I’d recommend any of the Metal Slug games and both The King of Fighters releases. I pretty much enjoy playing their games regardless of platform and have a few through the Hamster Classics on Nintendo Switch but get my SNK fix on PS4 with the newest fighter from them. These newly updated SNK classics are well worth your time. It sadly doesn’t look like they have been updated for the iPhone X screen as of now. Hopefully they do eventually add this in but getting the games running on iOS 11 is definitely more important than iPhone X support from a preservation standpoint. Will you be picking up any of these newly updated titles?
