In 1988, the full name was removed from the bottom of the logo and had officially become simply SNK. The font of the company name was changed into what it is today. The blue color was temporarily changed back to its red color during this period.

In 1990, the current version of the logo is introduced. The blue color of the wordmark returned and the "swishy" S, used since 1978, is now fully removed for good. The company would use this logo until its 2001 bankruptcy. It's now used by the current SNK Corporation.

On October 22, 2001, the original SNK Corporation filed for bankruptcy and it's IPs were put up for auction. The winning bid was Playmore Corporation, a company established a couple of months before the bankruptcy by SNK's founder Eikichi Kawasaki. The company acquired SNK's assets and rehired much of the original staff. The company then added SNK to their name in 2003 and has operated as SNK Corporation since 2016.

The company dropped the Playmore name in 2016 to refocus on pushing their gaming heritage, nearing SNK Playmore's 15th anniversary. They also reinstated their slogan "The Future is Now".
