Holder of SNK brands Playmore has finally announced its intention to bring Metal Slug 3 to a next-generation console, naming the PlayStation 2 as its platform of choice.

However, financial difficulties at the UK outfit have meant this now looks unlikely.
We’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
