From IGN..

March 23, 2006 - At GDC 2006, SNK Playmore confirmed today that the PlayStation Portable will be receiving a new compilation pack in the wildly wild shooter series, Metal Slug.

Metal Slug Collection features six games from the series, including Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4 and Metal Slug 5. The PSP version will also feature 2-player wireless co-op play. The collection is planned for release this November.

At last, you may never have to drop a pocket full of laundry money into an old NeoGeo MVS at the Pizzaporium again, so long as you have your PSP with you. We'll have hands-on impressions of the early build of Metal Slug Collection later tonight.

Pretty cool, but I don't have a PSP anymore. Still prefer playing on MVS, but you can't go wrong with portable slugs. ;) If this were announced a couple months ago, I might've kept my PSP.

Quoted for TRUTH. I'm sick of Lumines being the only good game I own for the PSP, it just sits there gathering dust most of the time. Debated selling it, not sure with this news!

I hate to be the voice of reality, but what probably will happen is the release date will be in 2007. Then it will be delayed 2 to 3 times before it finally gets cancelled. We are talking about Playmore, does anyone really put creedance into what they say? If it actually gets released, then I'll believe it.

Bump for truth. Anyone remember how friggin long it took Playmore to release SSV? It went from the PS2 to X-Box and even after that it was over a year from the original release date on X-Box before it was released.

There really is a god.

Read my lips....er, um....words: ALL 6 GAMES HAVE BETTER BE IN TRUE WIDESCREEN!
Any screen stretching crap & I will be devastated.
While there at it could they fix re-edit 5 to include the neccessary material that was left on the cuttingroom floor as well as fix the slowdown in 2. Shit, speaking of 2, X should just be left out so 2 can be perfected.

Regardless, This is the best news for me in a long time. I REALLY miss my PSP & between this, RR, SFA3, Lumines & G&G I needs to get me another. Plus that neo geo emulator is the shiz.

While that is true, it doesn't really matter because the PSP is region free.

As soon as it's out in Japan, you can import it for an extra $10 bucks or so and be done with it.

No need to wait for the US release.

Just a few things:

#1: I am sick of all the psp hate. "oh all I have to play is lumines whine whine whine" quit your bitchin and go play exit, me and my katamari, ridge racer, infected, both megaman games, sfa3 or anything else you might like if you gave it a shot. I was pissed off at the lack of games for a while too, but they're finally coming through and I'll be happy to support a system that gives me games I enjoy playing.

#2: They'd better leave 2 in there intact, and that includes the slowdown. I consider the slowdown to be part of the game when I think of 2. 2 and X should be billed as separate games, they are similar but not the same.

#3: I hope they have some kind of online component to this, like an online scoreboard or downloadable training missions if SNKP feels up to developing a bit. Hell maybe they could throw in those training missions from the MS1 & 2 NGCDs.

#4: Having the NGPC games as unlockables would be a nice touch too if you ask me.

#5: Here's to hoping they do it AND do it right

Spot on, man.

2 without slowdown = fake.

X may have some elements of 2, but I agree that it's a different game, anyone who played both of them long enough can confirm that.

Metal Gear Ac!d 2
MLB 06 The Show
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Capcom Classic Collection Remixed

And now every Metal Slug except 6 for the PSP? This is great news!

WTH! PSP is becoming a worthy handheld!

I thought my PSP would forever gather dust after I finished Metal Gear Ac!d. Nice to see this thing get some love. I've always said it was a sexy piece of hardware but my DS has been owning it as far as handheld gaming goes. That looks like it's about to change a bit.

While this sounds like a great deal, I'm just gonna say to just wait and see what the future of this brings in store. I don't have a PSP and I'm not shelling out $300 for that just because Metal-Slug is going to be on it (I'll be very appreciative if they release a DS/GBA version).

They are still bringing out Metal Slug 1 for the GBA, released the same time as the PSP collection. They are billing it and the collection as a celebration of the 10 year anniversary. It's probably a safe bet that Metal Slug 1 will be the only one released on the GBA though as the others would miss the anniversary.

X may have some elements of 2, but I agree that it's a different game, anyone who played both of them long enough can confirm that.

The thing is though, the slowdown experienced in 2 was with the hardware not coping so well with animations happening left right and centre. The PSP is much more powerful than the NEO, and thus unless the developers actually go out of their way to make it slow (which I doubt they will) in specific parts of the game, then it's going to play with no noticeable performance hit, and probably feel overclocked.

I will be mightily pissed if they don't deliver this, even if it does wind up getting delayed (which it no doubt will, if past history is any indication). While they're at it, how about a compilation of Slugs 1, 2 and X for the XBox? It would be nice to have all six Neo Slugs on the XBox. And I certainly hope to see Metal Slug 6 ported to it as well, as well as KOF XI.

The slowdowns more or less are a performance issue but also are helpful for 1cc runs, they've become important parts of gameplay strategy and thus should stay where they are. If you can't stand slowdowns, play X, 3, 4 or 5 instead (there's slowdown in 1 (and X to some extend) as well, it's just not that noticeable).

Dunno why people always want to "improve" something when they port a code from one platform to another. The Slugs are excellent games in every aspect, there's not need to fuck around with the code in any way IMO.

So again, Slug 2 without slowdowns = different game = fake.

IMO, etc.

None the less, an awesome idea for a collection. Heres to hoping it will be released within the next year.

Ah hell, I might just import a ceramic white PSP anyway.

Sony must be paying developers to release games that are already established as "t3h r0x0rz" on PSP so they'll get some sales of that PoS... It seems that just about the only thing worth buying on that system is ports, and about 2 or 3 original games, if even that much.

A compilation like this just feels so wrong, especially on PSP considering the fanbase. Portable Metal Slug sounds cool, but I'd rather it be on X-Box or something. (Yes, I know about the current ports).

I wonder what the load times will be like if it ever gets released... :chimp:

Someone PLEASE tell me when Im allowed to wet my pants. PLEASE!!!! I cant even stop talking to myself about this. AHH!! Metal slug 1-5 with me. Well, 4 and 5 are nothing special. Replace those 2 with space invaders and ill still be happy. But holy crap, MS1,2,x, and 3. GAHH!! GIVE ME METAL SLUG NOW!!! I DEMAND SATISFACTION!

IGN has posted a preview of the game.
To summarize, the game has lost nothing in terms of graphics/animation, it has blood (for those who worried), but suffers from horrible collection design and quite bad loading times.

Let s hope everything gets ironed out for the release.

Anyway, i m sad there won t be MSlug 6 in the pack... maybe later... anyway a sure purchase for me. 1-X-3 alone make it worth owning, 2-4-5 are the nuts, cherry and icing on the cake

It sounds to me like the guy was just explaining how doubtful it is that 2 will have the slowdown because the PSP is able to handle it.
It will be interesting to see if the slowdown is left intact or not.

You're right... I will always prefer the AES old style joystick!!

But for a portable system, the PSP buttons are no problem.
My only fear, is that I break the "x" button from all the pounding it gets!!

... and it's a lot easier/funner to play Metal Slug on the PSP than on the Neo Pocket.

BIGGER screen, BADDER sound, and BETTER buttons!!

I can't wait to get the PSP Anthology Collection with all the Slugs!!
Co-op play between 2 linked PSP's is going to be awesome!

I've pre-ordered (http://www.estarland.com/index.asp?action=redir&page=PSP&category=Action/Adv.&product=25994&q) mine for $37.95. Shipping is only $4 more.

I have to agree while this is a good thing its long over due and since slug is so big why the hell didnt they think about doing this a while back along with other 2d neo geo fighting games, grant it wont make them millions of more dollars but could considering the huge fan base, also they need more ports for other systems. SNKP cant be original ever and it seems they need to bring out old shit from the closet to make money instead in reinventing the wheel. Dont they realized that eventually they will destroy the franchise and then will they finally move on.

Since I didn't want to make yet ANOTHER thread about this, I decided to just post this in the most active topic...


From GAF



To my absolute and utter surprise and amazement, the SNK booth had two kiosks with fully playable near-final builds of Metal Slug Anthology for the Wii. It completely rocks. I checked out the options and there are like 6 or 7 different control schemes. You can play with the nunchuck attached using the analog stick (lefty or righty), in this mode you "throw" the Wiimote forward to throw grenades, which is kinda cool because you can hold down the fire button (B) while you chuck so you don't lose your stream of bullets for longer than you have to, it only takes a very slight movement). You can hold the controller sideways, NES style... but in this mode I couldn't figure out how to throw grenades. There are also control scheme options for VC controller and GameCube controller as well. Very cool! I had to check out Metal Slug 6 since it was only released in Japanese arcades, it's freaking great. It looks better than any previous version graphically. Less pixellated. It has a zoom-in/zoom-out effect sometimes too... like in Alien Hominid, which was not in any previous incarnation of Metal Slug, to my knowledge. The backgrounds were gorgeously animated and there was a new 'Laser' weapon which shoots a constant straight beam and extremely powerful. (Cool note: the first time I tried to load up Metal Slug 6 it froze up so the guy had to open up the black box that contained the Wii... turns out it was the test kit Wii with the green faceplate on the front. I got to see the disk eject and go back in too... very very smooth, smoother even than my car CD player.)

From what I have heard, yes. It's going to be a launch title. With all of the new announcements on the 6-7 different controls this has gone from a maybe to a must buy for me. Hopefully they will include Blood and mini games from the home versions.
