Twitch, the game-streaming giant, is partnering up with Japanese video game company SNK to give away some of their most iconic arcade games. This kind of partnership is the first of its kind from Twitch. However, if this ends up being successful, it’s unlikely to be the last.
Twitch Prime Members To Get SNK Classics
Twitch Prime VP Ethan Evans spoke to Game Informer about this partnership. “SNK’s arcade classics are as iconic as they come, and with more than 20 legendary titles from the Neo-Geo era, we’re making more free games available to Prime members than we ever have before.”
“If you grew up feeding quarters into arcade cabinets you already know how special these games are — and if you didn’t, you’re really in for a treat,” he said.
First Batch Of Games For Twitch Prime Members Already Revealed
Only Twitch Prime members will have access to this offer, and they won’t get all the games at once. SNK is going to give away 20 of their games in total. The first batch of games in coming on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. They include:
- Art Of Fighting 2
- Blazing Star
- Fatal Fury Special
- The King Of Fighters 2000
- The King Of Fighters 2002
- Samurai Shodown II
The rest of the 20 games will come in two more batches at some point throughout the summer. We don’t yet know when that will be specifically, though. SNK and Twitch have already told us which games will be part of these drops, though.
More Games Coming To Twitch Prime Members
Garou: Mark of the Wolves, The Last Blade 2, Metal Slug 2, The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition, Sengoku 3 and King of the Monsters are just some of the games that are going to be part of this offer. That’s 13 of the 20 games right there.
These games are only available for a limited time, though. Those of you who are Twitch Prime members can head over here to claim them while they’re there.
