SNK? Where Are You?

This is the front of game developer SNK Playmore's Osaka headquarters. No, it was.

The above photo was taken in 2006.

The below photo is what it looks like today. The signs say that they are looking for a new tenant. This is SNK's building! From the Midosuji train line, it has always been possible to see the SNK logo.

From the street, it now looks like this. During the Neo Geo-era, there was a sign at nearby station pointing out all the buildings SNK occupied. Those buildings dwindled, and that sign is long gone.

So where is SNK?! Apparently the company has moved to another nearby location. Phew! Of course, SNK has multiple offices in Japan, so SNK is just fine. The King of Fighters XIII is coming out, and it's got jubbly ninja Mai Shiranui.

SNK? Where Are You?

And yes! I took these photos from my car.
