Following the successful release on PSP® (PlayStation®Portable), SNK Playmore and Ignition Entertainment are pleased to announce the European release of Metal Slug Anthology for PlayStation®2.
Debuting in the arcades on the NEOGEO MVS arcade system back in April 1996, the Metal Slug series has become one of the most-loved arcade and console gaming franchises.
Containing Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5 and the latest addition to the series, Metal Slug 6 – this series has long been regarded as the bench mark of side-scrolling purity, and stands proud as one of the most important 2D platform-shooters on today’s current gaming platforms.
