SNK’s latest batch of NeoGeo Battle Coliseum media has HD versions of Akari, Asura, and Marco. And Marco still looks odd to me. I can’t imagine a Metal Slug game with proportional characters replacing super deformed ones.
The Xbox 360 version has all of the basic modes you’d expect from an SNK game such as a practice mode, survival mode, and color customization. Online play is new for the Xbox 360 version. Since the online mode can search for local (i.e. within your home country) and worldwide opponents we’re betting on a North American release even though it hasn’t been officially announced.
