“KING OF THE MONSTERS” is an action game released by SNK in 1991.
Players choose from one of the six monsters available, and battle their way across Japan in order to claim the title of strongest monster.
In addition to normal attacks such as punches and kicks, master more destructive techniques such as flame and beam attacks to overcome the enemies.

And that’s all, folks! A fairly quiet week, all things considered. Will you be picking up any of these titles?

One thought on “Nintendo Switch eShop Update – 4th January”

  1. I have fond memories of playing King of the Monsters at a local computer shop in Goldthorpe. It was that and another cabinet with Pac-Mania (which is the best Pac-Man game by the way).

    I may take a punt on this just because I remember the tunes were so good.
