Atlus blows up your PSP with Metal Slug XX

We kind of already knew that Atlus was publishing SNK’s Metal Slug XX from a ESRB leak. The classic military side-scrolling ball buster’s latest version is coming to your PSP next month, on February 23rd, for only $19.99.

Here’s some bulletpoints on the game:

  • Seven levels
  • Six characters
  • A 7th character will be downloadable for 99 cents
  • 2-player ad-hoc mode
  • 70 bonus challenge missions

And here’s the official website link.

So why is Atlus publishing this SNK game only on the PSP? We’re still waiting to hear back from them on that. SNK has the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions covered, though. Not that this matters that much. The game still looks great regardless of who is publishing it.
