Can anyone point me in the right direction of a place where I can buy SNK Arcade Classics, Samurai Shodown Anthology and King of Fighters the Orochi Saga for the PAL Wii? It'd have to be online - been told GameStation has them in stock but when I go there, the staff there never even heard of them, never mind stock them.

I can't even find them online anywhere either. I've wasted nearly a month of my free time (and my "lunch breaks" lol) trying to find them but I know they have been released. Can someone please tell me where to get them from and put me out of my misery? Nintendolife staff maybe? After all, you did review them.

Thank youuuuuuuuu!

Hey madgear!

I've only ever seen KoF Orochi Saga and SNK Arcade Classics in my local Gamestation - I haven't seen SamSho available yet, and I seem to remember reading it keeps slipping. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

According to staff at my local store, Gamestation only ever stocked the SNK titles pre-owned, so you might struggle to find them in your local store. I've just searched their online store and they don't have any there either, although I did find SNK Arcade Classics at GAME.co.uk, although it still says "preorder today" despite the game being available since October last year!

The link to the GAME listing is here, but that's all I've been able to find. Drop me a line at james@nint... if I can be any more help!

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Arcade Classics is availible to buy on Amazon UK at the moment. I wasn't able to get a copy until December but I've seen it in a few HMV's as well since. Haven't seen the other two anywhere which is annoying. Perhaps they'll be easier to get in a few months time.

Thanks, Prosody. I'm going to try and buy them from Game - hopefully they have them in stock and just haven't updated the fact the game is already out. I'll let you know if they arrive.

Great compilation. I got mine for $20 on ebay,

Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.

No worries. If not it might be worth giving them a ring and seeing what's going on with them. It's my understanding too that Gamestation probably won't be getting any more copies in apart from customer trade-ins, so it'll be hard to find. I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled though.
