Metal Slug 3 offically rolling onto XBLA

Well, it only took SNK nearly a year to announce it, but we finally know which Metal Slug will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade. Having already read the headline, you may have guessed that it's Metal Slug 3. If so, then you are correct. Go get yourself a cookie. According to a (translated) press release from SNK Playmore, the game will be part of the company's lineup at the Tokyo Game Show next month. In the same press release, it is also revealed that SNK Playmore will be showing off Fatal Fury Special (known as Wolf Legend Special in Japan).

There you have it then. Now that the veil of secrecy has been lifted, are you happy with SNK's Metal Slug choice, or would you have preferred a different entry in the series?

Personally, I think Metal Slug X is the best, but 3 is pretty good.

I shouldn't buy this, I already have Metal Slug anthology on the Wii... But I do so want to play Metal Slug without retarded controls.

Wow, I was just at a pizza place playing this game, and I thought to myself, "Why isn't this game on XBLA?" Bam, here it is.

Now if only this wouldn't end up being held up by stupid fucking Microsoft for months on end, I could be happy. But no! It will be held up. They always hold shit up so I can't buy it.

I like the Metal Slug 3 better than the two Contra games on XBLA combined.

damn this might just be my favorite system after all. Dreamcast and Saturn move over. :)
Great game though... hope we don't have to wait forever too.

I am a huge fan of the Metal Slug series, but honestly Metal Slug 3 isnt my first choice. Metal Slug, 1, 2, or X would have been better, even Metal Slug Advance was cooler than 3, imo. Even still, I might end up getting it anyways ;)

Metal Slug 1 would've been better. Also, @1, Metal Slug X was just a shitty version of Metal Slug 2.

sweeeet!!!!! X and 3 are my favorite metal slug games. These games imo blow contra out of the f*cking water too. They arent annoyingly frustrating. Just plain ol fun.

I played through Metal Slug Advance and liked it a lot, although I could never beat the last boss. Maybe I'll have better luck on this one!

I prefer to play this and all the other Metal Slugs on my MAME cabinet with an actual arcade joystick.
