Metal Slug X Announced for Steam

Metal Slug X, the slightly remixed version of Metal Slug 2, is making its way to Steam.

The popular side-scrolling game by SNK was originally released 1999 and since then has been ported to a litany of consoles including the PSP and Playstation 2 as part of the Metal Slug Anthology.

Metal Slug X will include:

  • Arcade Mode- ┬áPlay through the 6 original missions
  • Mission Mode- Play through your favorite missions or train by yourself or with a friend
  • Multiplayer- Connect to Steam and play with friends or a random comrade through the story
  • Leaderboards- See where you stack up in the Metal Slug X competition

So far Metal Slug X will only be available to PC and if you’re running Windows XP, for whatever reason, the game isn’t made available for that specific OS. You can find more information on their Steam page here. Metal Slug X is due to release on October 2 for $7.99, but is 25 percent off right now until release for $5.99.
