When a game is heavily rumored to be in the works, there's no way around it; the game's bound to see the light of day sooner or later. This statement couldn't hold truer for the newly announced Metal Slug 3.
Probably the best in the series. I have all of the SNK games on my PC in MAME. NEO-GEO truly did pump out some classics. It's too bad it was way ahead of it's time and uberpriced. A lot of people don't know but SNK was actually founded ny exCapcom employees. I actually prefer SNK's artwork over Capcoms. It was really cool to see all the Street Fighter 2 characters redrawn in SNK style artwork in SVC Chaos for the original XBOX. I would buy this game again on XBLA just for the online coop. Now where is my Samurai Shodown??
I would love to see this game come out over Live Arcade, my only problem with that is the game is too short for myself to justify spending 800 MS points on it. Hopefully, they include the first 3 games together in one download. Not only that, but since the games share quite a bit of artwork, they could probably save storage space instead of releasing them one at a time. Now that would add some value. Then, later on, release the next 3 as another download. Perfect balance between price and value.
