Pretty cool, but at this point they should do a slug compilation for the GBA rather than just one game...

Honestly, no, they should not. They should be doing a compilation for the PSP. Even if it was on the DS it would be better than GBA. Playmore is so last decade it's not even funny.

Port Packs for PSP w/ Online Match Service would be very nice.

Hell yeah.... but anyway, I'll take this port of MS1 to the GBA, provided they can do it justice. MS1 is still an awesome game in my book, I never get bored of it!

Sounds like a great idea, but by the time it REALLY gets realeased (4 years from now), who'll care. Why pre-order, SNKP kept blowing their Metal Slug Advance date , why would it be different now. How hard can it be to port a pre-existing 2-d game on the GBA? They can keep it, I'll play the real deal on my BIG RED. :smirk:

Oh yeah, I'm tired of paying for their crappy spoon-feeding. Don't make me pay $30 dollars for just one old game, give me the whole series or at least a couple games on one cart. :very_ang:

They need to port over,

MS2
MSX
MS3
MS4
MS5

Metal Slug Mission 1&2 need to be remade for the
GBA or the DS. :drool: :kekeke:

Maybe MS6 later on too. I like the life bar idea in
MS Advance though. :kekeke:

Would anyone buy a port of Shock Troopers if it
came out on the GBA or the DS?. :kekeke:

I will be buying this...I love the some of the oddities that surface for the GBA.

Badass.


Too bad I'll probably be in college by the time the damn thing actually releases, though.

Playmore is so last decade it's not even funny.I don't know...by the time it comes out, DS may have gone the way of the Virtual Boy. GBA is a safer bet, and I like seeing it continue to get support. PSP might have sharper graphics, but it also might have mid-level loading. I'll take GBA.

I don't know.

Well I do.
With the kind of mainstream acceptance (not ours) that P is vying for they are wasting thier time with the GBA.
Yes, under thier current BS trend of taking years to PORT (not make) a single game they COULD miis the perfect timing with the DS. But if they would pull thier heads out of thier collective asses and learn that porting a game can be cone relitively quikly than thier wares would be more effective in the market place. Metal Slug Advance was a perfect example of this.

I think they are choosing the gba because it has a huge base of users to work with.. the metal slug francise is already bought by a select few and by limiting the hardware user base to the ds or psp then even less units of the game would be sold.. In the end i think they are after making money on a old francise.

(although on a sidenote i would like to see graphical improvements on ether the psp or ds, would be nice but unlikely)

If SNKP wants to win me over and not rape me of my money, they need to retitle this to "Metal Slug: Compilation". I bet you could put a lot on one of those PSP discs.

Why put this on the DS and limit your user base?

The DS takes GBA carts, and the GBA can handle Slug 1, so why not just release it for the GBA.

Anyway, they better leave the fekking blood & guts in this time.

Nice, i'll be picking this one up (probably japanese so i can see red blood squirt).
Honestly, i would prefer to see it on ds or psp instead, because i do not feel the gba is up to the task of a perfect port. I'd take loading to having the music loose its ooomph and the animation being stripped ala msx on psx. Even still, any slug is better then no slug. When ms3d hits i may have to retract that last statement.

it's going to suck because the GBA doesn't have enough pixels to the screen to do the game justice, not can it push the sprites needed.

put it on the PSP instead.

Sounds good. I'll probably pick it up, unless I hear it's a shitty port. If it works out well, they should port the other slugs as well.

Will this port make the AES version drop in value? :D

Anyway I think this is good news, I'm happy they are using the GBA instead of the DS (I can't imagine how they would implement the touch screen, I heard Nintendo almost forces it :oh_no: ). Metal Slug Advance was in my opinion a decent game that showed that the GBA has enough potential for this kind of games, albeit of course they will always be inferior to the original. But come on, this is a portable console after all.

They need to make a longer Metal Slug game
like MS 1st Mission & MS 2nd Mission with at
least 35 Missions because I love blowing stuff
up, Slugs, & I like the life bar too. Where is that
girl with the big! heavy backpack. :kekeke:

The zombies were hella! sick & cool looking. :eek: :kekeke:

If they smashed all the MS games together with
every level from all the games, new storyline,
choose weapons & switch between them like
in Neo Contra did plus a saving feature too. :kekeke:

If they can do KOF 2000 on GBA and have it really nice, then they can do a MSlug game and have it look nice.

I'm somewhat torn on this one. I played the bejesus out of Metal Slug in the arcade and on Saturn, and I have my doubts as to whether the GBA is up to the task of a pixel-perfect port. Anything less would be disappointing. That being said, a version on GBA means that Metal Slug will get more widespread exposure, which is always a good thing.

It goes without saying that this one will most likely lose the blood and perhaps a few enemies and less-detailed everything...but I really don't care, because it's the GBA, not the Neo-Geo. When it comes out, I'm buying. I love Metal Slug Advance and I'd love to have another MS game on the go.

Perhaps for the lack of things in the original that will be missing on the GBA ver, they'll add some extras, like the Card system from MSA.
