One of my favorite video game publisher bands, SNK is turning 40 and celebrating big at PAX East. Below is the full breakdown of what you can expect this year as well as details to attend the celebration yourself.


We’re excited to announce that SNK turns 40 this year (1978-2018)! To celebrate, we’re having an SNK 40th anniversary panel at PAX East, featuring SNK HEROINES ~Tag Team Frenzy~ Director Kaito Soranaka, veteran artist Naoto Abe, and other SNK staff! We’ve got some fresh new announcements to make too, like the reveal of the next SNK HEROINES character, and other surprises. So don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime panel!

Moreover, if you visit Nintendo’s booth in the Exhibit Hall, you can play the demo version of SNK HEROINES ~Tag Team Frenzy~ on Nintendo Switch! Who knows, after the panel, maybe the SNK staff themselves will accept challengers to see who becomes the “Belle of the Brawl”…
