Posted on January 3, 2008, Chris XBLA Wednesday 1/2: Metal Slug 3 Arrives
There’s nothing wrong with a little Metal Slug action, and when that comes a week after your only new Arcade offering was SpongeBob, it tastes just a little bit sweeter. The game is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and features online co-op. If you’re not sold already, I don’t know what to say.
How about a feature list?
Marco, Tarma, Eri, and Fio, the four veterans of the elite Sparrows Unit now come to Xbox LIVE® in METAL SLUG 3™! The popular action shooting series is in all of its original arcade glory, with gorgeous graphics and all the run-and-gun action you can handle. There is no time for indecision. General Morden is on the warpath and you must prevent him from creating the New World Order. Stop the Rebel Army!
- Multiple routes: Different routes through the stages allow for extended replayability.
- Different metal slugs: Various slugs are available for help in battle. Handle all the different slugs to learn their capabilities and complete the mission.
- Individual enemies: Different enemies appear depending on which route the player takes, and each enemy has its own unique characteristics.
- Classic arcade graphics: The classic graphics are faithfully reproduced for your gaming enjoyment.
See you on the battlefield.
