Lately, some game distributors have taken to offering free games to subscribers to keep them happy and to lure in more customers. You can now add Amazon to the list, as they announced today a giveaway of seven classic games from SNK.
The titles are being given away through Twitch Prime, which you already have if you subscribe to Amazon Prime. SNK is handing out these freebies in honor of the 30th anniversary of NEOGEO, the arcade system they debuted on.
There was also a home console version of NEOGEO where the software was identical….an unusual rarity for that time period, due to the expense involved. You had to be rich, or at least a pretty good penny-pincher, to own a home NEOGEO unit. But it’s thirty years later, and now NEOGEO titles are being given away for nothing!
The seven titles available now through Twitch Prime are:
FATAL FURY SPECIAL
THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2000
SAMURAI SHODOWN II
ART OF FIGHTING 2
And these games are just the beginning…Amazon plans to give away over twenty free SNK games over the summer through Twitch Prime. On the way are 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…plus more!
