Metal Slug XX Comes to PlayStation 4

Metal Slug XX is coming to PlayStation 4 as upgraded version with different modes, multiplayer and Leona as playable character from start.

Originally released on Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable and Xbox 360 Live Arcade, run and gun game Metal Slug XX is an enhanced version of Metal Slug 7 from Atlus and SNK Playmore. The game debuted on 2008 without an arcade version. Though it was made backwards compatible on Xbox One in 2015, a PlayStation 4 version is long due. That wait is finally over and now a much more polished version is heading towards Sony's console very soon with many added features.

Brought up straight from the original PSP version, the game will be the first one from Metal Slug series which players can enjoy in 4K! Aside from supporting superior graphics, MSXX on PS4 offers you a couple of display settings like high-resolution border art styles or applying scanline filter on screen. Adding scanline options was for the sake of letting old-school fans enjoy nicely drawn 2D sprite-work of the game as it was originally debuted and how the series actually was on arcade era!

One of the scanline styles is TV, which is the equivalent of CRT monitor display and then there is Arcade mode to present the game just like we were used playing on arcade monitors. These little efforts were to bring back the classic feel since this one was not released on arcade. There is a new Trophy Set containing more than 30 Trophies on trivia and Easter eggs for some challenging players out there. DualShock 4 game controllers are fully compatible with this port and vibration support is also included to make the battles feel intense.
