SNK Playmore Changes Company Name Back to "SNK" With Classic Slogan, "The Future is Now"

There are very few game company slogans as immediately recognizable as SNK's "The Future is Now", which became iconic in 1990's arcades.

Now in 2016, SNKP's official twitter just announced that the company name will come full circle, returning simply to "SNK" and restoring "The Future is Now" as its official slogan! This can only be a sign of good things to come...  (Source: SNK Official Twitter)
