SNK Gets All Official With A Name Change


In a brief press release (extremely brief), SNK has announced that as of December 1, 2016 they have officially changed their corporate name from “SNK Playmore Corporation” to just “SNK Corporation”. Earlier this year the company had already switched logos that dropped the Playmore branding. I guess this is just to satisfy some corporate lawyers perhaps.

Read the official press release below.
