In today’s “I still can’t believe they’re making those” news, Atlus has announced that Metal Slug XX is heading to the PSP on Febuary 23rd. XX is a enhanced version of Metal Slug 7 in the same way that Metal Slug X was a enhanced Metal Slug 2, and considering most fans consider X to be the pinnacle of the entire series, this could be a very good thing. The PSP version sports six characters, a 70 mission “combat school” mode, and all the 15-year-old sprites you can shake a stick at for the low price of $19.99.
However, if you would like to pay more, then Atlus has you covered there as well in the form of a Leona, a 7th playable character that can be nabbed off the PlayStation Store for an extra $.99 on day one of release. That highly classy move aside, the Metal Slug series has always been priced rather steep, so $20 is more then reasonable in my book.
