Metal Slug 6 Anthologized

SNK Playmore confirms that latest arcade game will be added to PSP, Wii compilation; every installment of arcade series now included in package.

by

When the Metal Slug series debuted on the NeoGeo 10 years ago, gamers had to part with hundreds of dollars to own a copy. Now that arcade action classic and the six 2D Metal Slug sequels it spawned will all be available for the cost of a single PSP or Wii game.

SNK Playmore today added an extra game to its previously announced Metal Slug Anthology. Billed originally as six games in one (Metal Slug 1-5 and the Metal Slug 2 spin-off Metal Slug X), the compilation will now include Metal Slug 6 as well. Released in arcades earlier this year, Metal Slug 6 introduces two classic SNK characters to the series' roster: the original Ikari Warriors Ralf and Clark.

Metal Slug Anthology is expected to ship in November.

What about Metal Slug Advance for the GBA? Ha! Not EVERY game. Anywho, that's great news. I'd love to jump into a more active MS "career" through the Wii Anthology.

Hell yeah. I'm probably going to buy a PSP just for this single title. I kept hoping 6 would be added.

I´ve already payed more playing Metal Slug 3 so I can as well buy this. The reason why it´s not downloadable are the size.The first one was´nt so big, but then they grew in size.
