This is something we have all said should happen for a long time, and once again it seems Microsoft and their partners have answered our prayers. Rejoyce all ye faithful, Metal Slug heads to the Arcade!
This is fanspastic news. (Yes, we did make that word up.) Many of us here on the Xboxic crew love Metal Slug so its heralded return to form with an Arcade launch is just amazingly nice. Hopefully we might even see some Xbox Live co-op, but SNK have not confirmed which Metal Slug there are bringing over. All bets seem to be placed on Metal Slug 1, which is reported by many to be the best of the series. There is no release date as of yet but 1up.com guesses TBA 2007, which makes sense.
