Following the PSP
versions, the PlayStation 2 is now to be treated to a dose of Metal Slug Anthology
The release date is loosely "May 07' and the pack contains 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
On the off chance you've never heard of the series, Atari the publisher regards it "as the bench mark of side-scrolling purity, and (it)stands proud as one of the most important 2D platform-shooters on today’s current gaming platforms". We've got to say that we like it quite a bit, but we're far too English to gush quite that much.
