SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 is a video game compilation created and published by SNK Playmore which includes sixteen Neo Geo games. The compilation was released on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and the Wii.[1] In Australia, it was only released on the PlayStation 2.

A follow-up was released in Japan titled SNK Arcade Classics 0. The reason for the title having a "0" is because the titles in this collection were introduced before the Neo Geo was established.[2]
