Metal Slug XX Gunning For PSP (Update: Trailer)

By Spencer . October 6, 2009 . 1:33am

msxx SNK is developing Metal Slug XX for the PSP and like Metal Slug X it looks like a remix.


More specifically, a remix of Metal Slug 7. Similar to SNK’s Nintendo DS game, Metal Slug XX has seven stages, combat school with 70+ missions, the Slug Tank, and the mecha-like Slug Gigant. Those slugs were specifically created for Metal Slug 7 I wonder if Cynthia flirts with you in this game too.


Whether Metal Slug XX is a rearranged version of Metal Slug 7 or not, it has one key feature the DS game doesn’t have. You can play this game with a friend via ad-hoc multiplayer. Japan gets Metal Slug XX on December 23

    neat, does it say if it is a download title and price? I couldnt make it out in the scan.

    I am going to check if there is an early copy of famitsu down at the market now ;)

    • Save yourself a trip! SNK must have anticipated a Famitsu leak! They just officially announced it as a retail game for 5,040 yen. Plus you get boxers as a pre-order bonus.

      Here’s a link to the site: The screenshots are bordered so I’m even more convinced this is a DS remix.

        gosh, that seems awfully familiar.

      • Boxers, huh?
        I think Capcom did the same for Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins (Arthur’s cute Strawberry pattern on white) and Punch Out’s King Hippo’s boxers (the one that can supposedly cause cancer).
        Maybe this boxers-with-game deal is becoming a new trend. You can never have too many pairs.

    Cynthia’s back, huh? I wonder how many games it’ll be before she becomes playable…

  • Thank goodness for Co-Op. Metal Slug without Co-Op is like playing … I dunno, it’s just not good! When I was in Japan for Guilty Gear Slash, I played a heck of a lot of Espgaluda II and Metal Slug 6 with friends. Metal Slug has just always been fun. I use to make an exception for the single player on Neo Geo Pocket Color, but it’s hard to go back and play any of them by myself for extended periods of time. Fio all the way!

    Ugh, where’s the XBLA version already?

  • thebanditking

    I want this so bad! Curse you Japan you still get all the cool stuff first T_T.
    I though Metal Slug 7 on DS was horrible, the sprites were all messed up (or maybe it was the zoom on the camera?) but it was just was not well done. I have been waiting for a proper release of MS7 and it looks like I got my wish. Just please be on a disc when it comes here! Stupid digital distribution…..

  • It does looks like a port of 7 since I can clearly see the first boss in that magazine scan.
    I hope it has enough stuff new to warrant a double dip.
