Atlus announced today that it is bringing Metal Slug XX, a side-scrolling, arcade-style, run-and-gun shooter to the PlayStation Portable next month. The latest entry in the Metal Slug series, the XX game will feature ad-hoc multiplayer and cooperative arcade play.
The game comes with six classic Metal Slug characters, including Marco, Tarma, Fio, Eri, Ralf, and Clark. You can also purchase Leona for $.99 USD. You’ll get more than 70 mission-based trials in “Combat School” to give the game some legs. Perhaps best of all, the game will only set you back $19.99.
If you head over to the PlayStation Blog, you can enter for your chance to win Metal Slug boxers – the kind you wear under your pants. You can also win one of nine Japanese promotional posters.
