SNK Playmore simplifies company name to 'SNK', reverts slogan back to 'The Future is Now'

Time for a brief history lesson. SNK started back in 1978, closed its doors and was essentially assimilated by Playmore in 2001. Noting the SNK brand's popularity, Playmore became SNK Playmore in 2003.


According to SNK's official Twitter, the company is changing its name yet again by nixing the latter portion to effectively return to 'SNK.' They've also re-adopted their old company motto, "The Future is Now."

While SNK has a long list of notable gaming contributions, the latest King of Fighters is surely the most immediate association with company here in the fighting game community.
