We do like nice surprises, and the drop of Metal Slug 1st & 2nd Mission Double Pack on the Switch eShop has been a welcome arrival this week. Out now globally, this combines two Neo Geo Color titles in one, as you can see in the trailer above.

If you search Metal Slug on the eShop you get a whole lot of results, with 6 archives ports from Hamster covering the Neo Geo mainline entries - including Metal Slug X. Coming out originally on the less powerful but undeniably cool pocket system, 1st and 2nd Mission offer a rather different look but the same core gameplay ideas.

This freshly released double pack costs $14.99 / €14,99 / £13.49, but it is worth noting that both of these games are already in Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1, a compilation of ten rather fun games that we liked a lot in our review. That's an ideal all-in-one option at $39.99 / €39,99 / £35.99 if you haven't yet explored the Neo Geo Pocket library on Switch, but with this fresh Metal Slug bundle now available most of that compilation can now be bought separately on the eShop if you want to pick and choose.

Are you tempted to grab this bundle on the Switch eShop?
