As we reported over the weekend, Atlus is working with SNK. They’re bringing Metal Slug XX to North America on February 23.
The run and gun game has six characters, seven stages, and something Metal Slug 7 was sorely missing – a two player mode. Metal Slug XX has an ad-hoc powered cooperative play. Veterans can take on 70+ combat school challenges. Hmm… I wonder if Atlus will spice up the dialogue when Cynthia, the drill instructor, warms up to the player.
Metal Slug XX will be sold in stores for $19.99 and Leona, a seventh playable character so far not mentioned in Japan, will be available on the PlayStation Store for 99 cents.
