Just watched the stream of the NISA/SNK panel at Pax West, and they showed off a bit more of the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection.
The big news is that they will be adding 10 more games to the collection as free DLC after launch. They announced the first five: Sasuke vs. Commander, Fantasy, Joyful Road/Munch Mobile, Time Soldiers, and Chopper I.
They also showed some of the other features, including content in the museum mode, as well as the ability to watch a playthrough of any of the games, with the ability to jump in and take control at any time. (Sounds kinda like the old Super Guide thing Nintendo put into some of their games.)
For SNK Heroines, they showed a silhouette for the next DLC character, and confirmed it would be another crossover character.
I'll post a link to the archived video here when it's available.

The next DLC crossover character for SNK Heroines is revealed as a gender-swapped SkulloMania from Fighting EX Layer (and you may remember originally appearing in the old Street Fighter EX series):
This was not entirely unexpected. Thief Arthur was kind of an "exchange" character due to Iori Yagami appearing as a guest in the fighting game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood. And at EVO, Terry Bogard was revealed to be a guest character in Fighting EX Layer, so it was suspected that a character from that game would also be a guest in SNK Heroines.
And now, that leaves one unfulfilled exchange: Geese Howard was in Tekken 7. So, it seems likely a Tekken character will be the next (final?) guest character in SNK Heroines.
As for the game, itself... I don't have it. Just didn't seem worth a full-priced purchase for the thin roster + extra for DLC characters + having to get the Nintendo Switch Online service to play online. Not to mention some reports that the Switch version has some performance issues.

Oh yeah, here's the SNK panel from PAX West a few weeks ago, or at least the part that's worth watching.
It's mainly just an overview of some of the games and features of the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection. However, one interesting thing they mention is that the original 1980 arcade release of Sasuke vs. Commander contained a bug that caused the game to crash at a certain point, so it was impossible for anyone to actually beat the game and see the ending. But with the release for this collection, they fixed the bug, so for the first time ever, people will be able to complete the game.

The final batch of games has been revealed for the Anniversary Collection, and they include not five, but SIX more games! They are: Beast Busters, Bermuda Triangle, Ozma Wars, Paddle Mania, SAR: Search and Rescue, and World Wars.
All 11 DLC games will be available on December 11!
The trailer for the first five games came out a couple of weeks ago, but I guess I never posted it. Here are both trailers:

Another Twitter thread, this time with Brandon Sheffield talking about how he was able to research SNK's first game, Space Micon, by meeting with an obscure Japanese collector who owned one. Apparently, a lot of info available online about SNK's earliest games is wrong.
Check out the whole thread. It has a lot of nice pictures.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
