SNK has revealed that its 40th Anniversary Collection - which includes some of the company's earliest arcade hits, such as Alpha Mission, Athena, Ikari Warriors, Guerrilla War, P.O.W., Prehistoric Isle, Psycho SoldierVanguard, and Victory Road - will arrive on Switch on November 13th in North America and on the 16th in Europe.

The Japanese veteran has also released a special trailer to accompany the release date news, which shows some of its classic titles in action. You can watch it on this very page, you lucky things.

We got the chance to play this vintage compilation at E3, and came away very impressed - the ability to rewind time is a neat touch that really enriches the experience of playing these retro titles in 2018. Our only worry is that some of these titles are somewhat obscure when compared to the likes of King of Fighters, Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown, but there's no denying their quality.

Let us know if you'll be popping this collection on your Christmas list by posting a comment.
