Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced Metal Slug XX, a side-scrolling, arcade-style, run-and-gun shooter for PSP system, exploding with the same winning formula of over-the-top action and cartoon mayhem that has kept Metal Slug a premier franchise for over a decade.
Frantic and fun, serious Metal Slug fans and casual gamers alike can relive the glory and charm of old school cooperative arcade play, teaming with a friend via ad-hoc multiplayer to outrun and outshoot hundreds of enemies and liberate as many prisoners as possible.
Choose between six zany Metal Slug characters and shoot through seven action-packed levels with varying obstacles, numerous enemies, and diverging paths. Confident players can put their skills to the test by playing more than 70 mission-based trials in “Combat School.” With its unmistakable style and personality, nostalgic gameplay, more than 70 missions, and the ability to play with a friend, Metal Slug XX is the definitive portable Metal Slug arcade experience.
Consider yourself the ultimate Metal Slug fan? Purchase Leona, a seventh playable character with her own unique abilities, via PlayStation Store for only 99 cents.
Metal Slug XX is currently scheduled for release on February 23, 2010 with an MSRP of just $19.99. For more information, please visit the website www.atlus.com/metalslugxx.
