CES: SNK Becomes Fifth Nintendo Licensee

SNK has been around in the arcade scene for a few years now, so it’s exciting to see yet another developer publish games for the NES. The announcement was made at this year’s Winter CES show in Las Vegas.

SNK isn’t divulging its full slate of games coming this year, but it was willing to confirm that Ikari Warriors will be arriving on the NES before summer. It’s just one of the latest arcade to NES conversions that will feature two-player simultaneous action. No more taking turns (we’re looking at you, Commando)!



There are now a total of five Nintendo third-party licensees in North America. Take a look at what they bring to the table:

Expect this stack of games to vastly increase as the year goes on:
