If you didn’t know, your Amazon Prime membership comes with a handful of free games each month. Twitch Prime, one of the perks of Amazon Prime, typically offers up five free games each month that are yours to keep forever. Normally, you get a variety of indie titles, but throughout the summer Twitch Prime will give away a ton of classic arcade games. Twitch Prime has partnered with SNK to ring in the NEOGEO arcade’s 30th anniversary by giving away more than 20 SNK games. The first batch of freebies goes live May 26. [Update: Our original story stated Twitch Prime would have 22 free SNK games. We have since learned that the exact number hasn’t been finalized, but it will be north of 20.]
Out of the gate, seven SNK games will be free, which are a mix of fighting games and shoot ’em ups. Five fighting games–Art of Fighting 2, Fatal Fury Special, The King of Fighters 2000, The King of Fighters 2002, and Samurai Shodown II–will be free to snag on May 26. You can also grab the shoot ’em up Pulstar and its spiritual successor Blazing Star.
Twitch Prime hasn’t revealed every free SNK game that will drop throughout the summer, but we do know a handful of titles to look forward to in the coming months: Metal Slug 2, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, The Last Blade 2, Sengoku 3, King of Monsters, and The King of Fighters’ 98 Ultimate Match Final Edition. The remaining freebies will be revealed at a later date.
In addition to the upcoming SNK free games, Twitch Prime members can still claim seven of May’s freebies until the end of the month. That means 14 Twitch Prime free games will be available at one time, which might be a record. Twitch Prime also hands out loot for popular games each month such as Destiny 2 and League of Legends.
To claim Twitch Prime free games and loot, you need an active Amazon Prime subscription. Amazon Prime costs $119/year or $13/month, but you can sign up for a 30-day free trial if you’re a new subscriber.
For more free games, take a look at our running list of every free game available now. The Epic Games Store is giving away Civilization VI right now during its Mega Sale, marking the second week in a row a huge AAA title is up for grabs.
