Update reason: a bit of a warning

[Update] SNK kicks the summer off right with sales on Metal Slug, Fatal Fury Special, Samurai Shodown II, and more
| Metal Slug
Updated July 25th, 9:47 AM: As Paul and Roy noted in the comments below, a lot of SNK's games are 32-bit with no evidence that they'll be moving up to 64-bit. So, if you're looking to update to iOS 11 you might want to give this sale a miss for the most part. Android users, you're alright in this instance.

Both Fatal Fury Special and Garou: Mark of the Wolves will be playable on iOS 11.

We've currently contacted SNK to check whether they have any plans to update the titles accordingly. We'll let you know as soon as they get back to us.

Now that schools have broken up and there's been at least one major ice shortage, I guess that means summer's in full swing.

To celebrate, SNK is hosting a huge summer sale in which they've knocked the prices of all of their paid titles across iOS and Android until August 3rd. Ooh la la.

You can now get the following nine titles dirt cheap:

Metal Slug - iOS (99p/99c), Android (99p)
