    Starting this week, Twitch will be teaming up with SNK to give Prime members free copies of a couple dozen classics from SNK’s prodigious library of arcade games. Members will get the first round of free games May 26, with more to follow over the course of the summer.

    The first set of games includes Art of Fighting 2, Blazing Star, Fatal Fury Special, The King of Fighters 2000 and 2002, Pulstar, and Samurai Shodown II. It’s a selection that shows off exactly what SNK was famous for in the ’90s: ‘shmups and and fighting games. Pulstar and Blazing Star cover the shoot ’em up side, while the rest are examples of SNK’s now-familiar fighting system. If you’ve got a mullet, a gi, and some handwraps, you’re ready to rumble.

    They’re all Neo Geo classics, and according to the trailer from Twitch Prime, they’ll be available all year once the offer goes live – despite having long and storied career devouring tokens at arcades worldwide. Perhaps some SNK executive made the decision that quarters aren’t what they used to be – who can say?

    Here’s the trailer:

    The main thing I use my Prime account for is for Prime Video, I just love the shows on there.
