In 1996, an arcade legend was born with the release of 'METAL SLUG: Super Vehicle 001'. The clever mix of the military-style themed, side-scrolling action shooting / platform gameplay, with a wacky sense of humor and hilarious cartoon style met with an instant success among players around the world.
The popularity of SNK's legendary action-shooting series has never shown any signs of slowing down over the years. To celebrate, the creators of METAL SLUG ANTHOLOGY™ stopped at nothing to provide a 2D, side-scrolling compilation with all the great gameplay possibilities into this complete arcade compilation.
Each installment in the series included in METAL SLUG ANTHOLOGY™ offers unique, memorable gameplay and game objectives centered around a futuristic battle between the Regular and Rebel Army. The Regular Army gathered its scattered troops and launched a desperate counter attack recapturing the stolen Metal Slug, and using an arsenal of vehicles to destroy the opposition!
