There's good news and bad news about Metal Slug 7 on Xbox Live Arcade
. The bad news is that we're pretty sure it's not
coming out. The good news is that Metal Slug XX,
the upgraded, multiplayer-capable PSP remix of the DS game, is replacing it in SNK's 2010 lineup. SNK also announced XBLA ports of two of its fighting games: King of Fighters 2002 Ultimate Match
and Neo Geo Battle Coliseum
. All three will join the weird King of Fighters
shooting game, The King of Fighters Sky Stage
, on XBLA in spring 2010.
These games have, so far, been announced only for Japan, but we are sure SNK will release them all worldwide -- if only because it would be a waste of effort to develop an XBLA title just for the few people in Japan who would buy it.
