SNK 40th Anniversary Collection

Welcome to the walkthrough for SNK 40th Anniversary Collection. This is a guide for people who prefer text over videos. That being said, Sangriaz and BiLLzuMaNaTi both have great video guides. Please show them some love by subscribing.

This game takes 15 minutes. It might take a little longer for you (20-25) because you probably don't have it down as well as I do.

The game is made up of a whole bunch of old SNK games. However, if all you want are the achievements, there's a nice little trick to popping them all. You only need to play 14 of the games; others have no achievements.

The solution for each game revolves around the "Watch" feature. What you will do for each game is the following:

Watch to the point I tell you => Press cn_start => Start Playing =>IMMEDIATELY press cn_back => Quit Game => Quit (Save) => Continue.

Practically every single game pops when you reach the credits. Therefore, for time's sake, you're going to want to pause as close to the credits as possible. That's where this guide comes in: to tell you what time to stop.

You can press cn_RT to quickly jump forward in the game to the end. You can manipulate the time with cn_left and cn_right to get to the right time. If you miss the achievement after actually playing the game, replay, go back a second, and redo. That should do it, but I've worked out the times pretty well. toast

Here we go. Once again, the steps for each one are: Watch to the point I tell you => Press cn_start => Start Playing =>IMMEDIATELY press cn_back => Quit Game => Quit (Save) => Continue. At some points, you may have to move slightly. I've noted those for you.

Remember to IMMEDIATELY press cn_back after you start playing. The time should be around 1-2 seconds after you restart, so I cut it close. smile

Alpha Mission (Arcade): Watch until 35:50, then Start Playing => cn_back => Follow the above instructions.
