They're limited to mostly small size sprites, though. What's really lacking in post-revival Metal Slug games were sterile digitized backdrops, compared to 100% pixel artwork found in old games. Also, I'm completely sick of recycling decades old assets, as much as I'm a huge fan of them. Better move on to 3D like their fighting games.
Yeah I can't exactly read the korean source, but the tweet says "consoles", so I'm assuming that means more than 1.Okay so just to be sure, my understanding from the tweet is that they are planning more NeoGeo hardware stuff for fans/hobbyists, but not actually making something that is a competing console for the gaming market. And there is a new Metal Slug being developed for game consoles like PS4/XB1/Switch/etc. Correct? Because if SNK is making a new console with an exclusive Metal Slug game, April 1st is long over. :P
I was thinking 3D models in a "2D" game. I would be skeptical too for a third person view Metal Slug game.
I played it and it wasn't that bad. Obviously inferior to the 2D games, but still.
They can be 3D and still play just like the 2D games, also PS2 Contra games were awesome and at least one of them was pretty faithful to OG Contra!
Damn, excellent news all around.Some additional news
Translation comes from Sino, they can't post right now because they are on a self requested ban to avoid Avengers spoilers.
