If you love retro gaming, you might want to hop on over to GOG as they've teamed up with SNK again to bring a bunch more classic games to your collections.

Since these are older games, they are emulated, although it's not clear if any of them come with the ROMs you may have to use their included emulation with Wine.

The new arrivals are:

Speaking about more retro games like this being revived and released on GOG their team said "With classics so well known and beloved, we're surely kicking off 2024 on a high note – making it undeniably clear that we’re not slowing down on a mission of games preservation. This is not GOG’s final word on the subject, that’s for sure – we have much more up our sleeves, and we’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with SNK, as well as their catalogue of timeless gems on our platform. So, better get ready, because more is yet to come".

They also have an SNK publisher sale going on.

That's a pretty good selection, other than the utterly odious Magician Lord!

That said, it's disappointing that they haven't bothered with Linux support here, even though the developer they've gone with, Code Mystics, is very heavily associated with emulated re-releases. Emulation on Linux is so good, that I can't see any excuse for such a specialised dev and set of re-releases to have skipped it.

Now THIS is particularly interesting! I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in store here.

For those unaware: these added games were part of seemingly some type of partnership between Amazon Prime and Code Mystics/SNK. The added games were all part of the SNK free NEOGEO games promotion that was a year long if I'm not mistaken.

Interesting to see them being released as purchasable games.

"Metal Slug 4" . . . OK, why were there four games about a slug made of metal? I guess it's a sort of interesting superhero concept, like Earthworm Jim, but four games?

I didn't enjoy it personally, and I really couldn't find anything I liked about it. I'm not 100% sure if we're talking about different games here!

Just a quick dumb sketch in one of my notebooks - pardon the lighting.

I don't know, but there is an amazingly impressive port of the first one being worked on for the Atari STe.
