Apparently SNK Playmore are considering pushing an entry of their killer run n’ gun series, Metal Slug, onto our home consoles in HD glory.
IGN has caught an interview with SNK Playmore reps, although no real details were dropped…
In order to meet our fans demands for an HD version of Metal Slug, we’re considering bringing this series to the new generation of consoles in a similar way to KOF XII
Hopefully they mean similar in the entirely new HD sprites kind of way, and not similar in the in development for over 2 years way.
Nothing more has been said regarding a release date or solid confirmation other than “We look forward to announcing this someday soon”. The ball was dropped when Metal Slug 6 was released on new arcade hardware and no graphical changes were made, so looks like we’ll all be stuck playing Metal Slug X on the megalo 50’s in our garage for a while longer.
