Metal Slug loaded onto PSP

SNK Playmore to shoehorn six installments of 2D arcade shooter series onto one UMD this fall.


In meetings with GameSpot, SNK Playmore this morning confirmed that it will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Metal Slug series of 2D shooters with a PSP compilation set for release this fall.

The Metal Slug Collection will include six full games on one UMD: the original Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, and Metal Slug 5. SNK Playmore is promising perfect translations of the arcade classics, as well as wireless support for two-player action.

Originally released on the NeoGeo home-and-arcade platform, the run-and-gun action franchise has found its way onto the Sega Saturn, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and Xbox. It's no stranger to gaming on the go, either, having received makeovers for mobile phones, the Game Boy Advance, and the NeoGeo Pocket Color.
