SNK PLAYMORE’s Nostalgic Releases

Arcade News Playstation 3 SNK

New on the American Playstation®Store market is SNK PLAYMORE USA CORPORATION’s P.O.W. – Prisoners Of War and PREHISTORIC ISLE. These SNK mini titles are blasts from the past, being brought back from SNK’s Golden Age of action-shooting games from the 80’s.

The release of these two titles is part of a “retro-arcade emulation” project, which aims to bring back the classic gaming experience through a grand collection of action, shooting, platform and action/puzzle titles.

In P.O.W – Prisoners Of War you control a military prisoner who breaks free from his cell, and must fight through waves of incoming enemies in a traditional side scrolling model.

In Prehistoric Isle you pilot a 1930’s airplane, and fight against legions of dinosaurs and cavemen over a tropical island, while collecting items and dodging traps that impede your journey in this horizontal side-scrolling shooter.

P.O.W. – Prisoners Of War and PREHISTORIC ISLE will be available on the PlayStation®Store from Tuesday, December 20, 2011. They are exclusively available on PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and compatible on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

I'm just a typical university student who loves his games and anime. During the day I study engineering, though at night I play until my fingers bleed. My favorite gaming series of all time is the Final Fantasy collection, and favorite anime is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Not only am I a RPG fanatic, but I am also a self proclaimed 'pro' Call Of Duty player, and hold the high scores in my local arcade for Time Crisis, a childhood favorite. I work part time at a warehouse, and also tutor at my University to help struggling students. Despite my kind nature, find me online and I will show no mercy. Happy gaming.
