Here it is: The final lineup of Amazon Prime Gaming’s SNK freebies

I still want to call it ‘Twitch Prime’

Today, SNK and Amazon have announced the final eight games headed to their Prime Gaming suite, and they saved a few of the best titles for last.

Those new additions are: The Last Blade 2, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Metal Slug 3, Samurai Shodown V Special, The King of Fighters ’97 Global Match, The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition, The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match and Shock Troopers.

Although Garou is widely available at this point it’s easily one of the more prolific fighters in SNK’s catalog, as is the often missed Last Blade 2. You’re also basically collecting every major retro King of Fighters game ever made at this point too, with three of the eight games on offer today hailing from that franchise. As of today, there’s 22 SNK games available for Prime Gaming members.

Oh, in case you forgot, and are wondering why I’m calling it “Prime Gaming” instead of “Twitch Prime,” Amazon re-branded the service last month. Basically, they’re trying to ensure that it’s uniform with Amazon Prime benefits for more marketing penetration, rather than directly linking it to Twitch; a seemingly separate service. Ostensibly, nothing has changed.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
