Tell me about it. I absolutely love that game, but it doesn't seem to be on any collections or download services. I'm surprised neither of the Shock Troopers games are on VC tbh.

I caved in and ordered this game off of ebay. I found a seller from Korea with a few copies of the asian version of the game for $32.99. I figured even if it does get released in America, it will probably come out for about $30 and have a super limited print run, reducing my chances of finding one on clearance or a used one for any cheaper. Seeing the barren wasteland that is the PSP release schedule for the rest of the year, I figured what the hell.

I wish they would have released this on the Wii. :(

Looks like this isn't coming to America. Glad I ordered the Asian version a few weeks back.

If anyone is interested in this title still, there is a Korean seller on eBay selling them for $19.99 w/ FREE shipping. I can vouch for them as mine came considerably faster than anticipated.

It's challenging because the games play smaller than the PSP screen (Touchdown Fever was borderline tiny) and of course it is not in English. Most games are intuitive enough to figure out.

Cool little set for the collection.

Athena (the arcade) is better than NES (the Micronics-ported monstrosity)

Shock Troopers 2nd Squad is ok, but if you're expecting the awesomeness that is the first game, you're gonna get burned.

Here’s a list of the twenty games in SNK Arcade Classics 0:

Athena series
Athena
Psycho Soldier

Ikari series
Ikari Warriors
Dogosoken
Ikari III: The Rescue (overseas version)

Action
Guerrilla War
Marvin’s Maze
P.O.W.
Search and Rescue
Street Smart

Sports
Gold Medalist
Super Championship Baseball (overseas version)
Touchdown Fever

Shooting
ASO
Bermuda Triangle
HAL 21
Prehistoric Isle in 1930
Sasuke vs. Commander
T.A.N.K.
Vanguard 2


Psycho Soldier, P.O.W., Guerrilla War, Street Smart are great.

ASO (Alpha Mission) is a surprisingly fun & challenging shmup. ASO II (Alpha Mission II) on the Neo is way better.

Bermuda Triangle and Prehistoric Isle are early SNK classics. Vanguard II was not like the first game, but still fun to play in short sessions.
