  • Gallery Finally, Metal Slug Has The Official Book It Deserves

    "Thank you!"

    Metal Slug is arguably one of the few series from the '90s which has managed to endure and persist despite the passage of time and the advances of technology; it seems that blowing up 2D sprites has a timeless quality to it, and we've personally been really enjoying revisiting these classic games on Switch. If you're a fan of the...

  • News SNK Virtual Console Releases In Jeopardy?

    It’s been on the cards for some time now but Ignition Entertainment has officially announced the Euro release of SNK’s Arcade Classics Collection, Volume One.

    This retro anthology is already available on the Sony PS2 and PSP and contains 16 choice cuts from the back catalogue of this illustrious company. All of the games are taken from the library of the near-legendary Neo-Geo console, which..

  • News US VC Releases - 26th May - Metal Slug

    A rather crowded day for the US today - There's two well-known titles, accompanied by two lesser-known ones. One of each of these two sets is a Virtual Console game.

    The well-known VC game is of course Metal Slug for the Neo Geo. As Marco Rossi or Tarma Roving, you have to take on a whole army full of soldiers, tanks, planes, artillery and other machinery. Like in games such as Contra, one hit will..

  • News EU VC Releases - 9th May - Metal Slug and More Imports

    After last week's relatively good batch of games we honestly expected Nintendo would choose the least interesting upcoming imports to release this week. Thankfully we've been proven wrong - They only chose a single bad one, plus two good ones, and on top of that, we get a non-import game!

    Metal Slug needs no introduction amongst most hardcore gamers. The series is basically a wackier version of the..

  • News ESRB Update: EarthBound Finally Coming To Virtual Console!

    It's finally happening!

  • News Japan To Get Dracula X And Metal Slug Next Tuesday

    Even the most optimistic Nintendo fan would be hard pressed to deny that this week’s European Virtual Console update was a tad underwhelming. Just to make you feel even worse about it, not only is Japan getting four (count ‘em) games this coming Tuesday (22nd), but two of those releases are Castlevania Dracula X: Rondo of Blood and Metal Slug.

    Envy is a terrible thing, isn’t it? Rondo is..

  • Feature Why April Is A Massive Month For the Virtual Console

    If you count yourself as a hardcore gamer then you will have read our recent news piece about April’s Japanese Virtual Console games with marked interest. Sure, there’s the usual amount of filler in there, like Famicom Detective Club Part II and Bokosuka Wars (neither of which are likely to make the leap over to the US/Euro VC service), but there’s a trio of games that should cause your pulse to race uncontrollably – Dracula X: Rondo of Blood, MUSHA Aleste and Metal Slug.

    Dracula X is widely regarded...
