So, SNK news summary:
The Neo Geo Pocket Color games Samurai Shodown 2! and The King of Fighters R-2 should be available on the eShop today.
The Neo Geo Samurai Shodown Collection was also released last week.
A third season of DLC was announced for SamSho 2019, but no characters have been revealed yet. There was also a free DLC character released: Gongsun Li, a crossover character from the mobile game Honor of Kings.
On a somewhat related note, Famitsu has been publishing some article on Samurai Shodown recently... in English. Since when did Famitsu start publishing some articles in English? (And why are they all about SamSho?)
I admit I've fallen off the bus when it comes to supporting SNK on Switch, but I'm limited in what I can spend these days. Plus, I've been leaning more into JRPGs.
Also, they've released a video of Yasuyuki Oda announcing the release of the game, and they tease that one of the upcoming DLC characters for Samurai Shodown will be from The Last Blade. They don't say who it will be, but they say it's "someone the fans absolutely adore."
I'm betting it will be Hibiki from Last Blade 2. She always seemed to be one of the more popular Last Blade characters, and she was even included in Capcom vs. SNK 2.

I'd say it was over back when Eikichi Kawasaki sold his share of the company. The buyers were Chinese game companies who saw subsidiaries as mostly financial investment, and didn't have the same moral concerns as the west do.

Getting back to talking about the games, SNK announced that the official reveal trailer for King of Fighter XV will be released on January 7. Also, they will be announcing the next two DLC characters for Samurai Shodown, including the Last Blade character.

Here is the presentation video (linked because embedding it is disabled due to age restriction) that shows the first trailer for King of Fighters XV, as well as the first two characters in the next season of SamSho DLC.
So, also, they've announced KoF XIV Ultimate Edition and KoF 2002 Unlimited Match for PS4. I'm guessing that aside from the NGPC games, they're phasing out Switch support.
As for SamSho, they've announced Cham Cham as the next DLC character, and the Last Blade crossover character will, indeed, be Hibiki. Both excellent choices, in my opinion.

SNK vs. Capcom is out now. However, according to Nintendo Life, SNK has announced a compilation of Neo Geo Pocket Color games for the Switch (including SvC). The price and what games are included have not been revealed yet.
In other news, according to Gamasutra, Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund is buying up shares of Activision Blizzard, EA, and Take-Two, so SNK isn't the only company being gobbled up.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
