After SNK announced the game way back in December
, it looks like Metal Slug XX
has an official release date on XBLA
... in Japan at least. According to Xbox.com Japan
, Metal Slug XX
(an upgraded port of Metal Slug 7
) is set to arrive next Wednesday, May 19. It's important to note that release dates are not always worldwide, so it's possible that the game will be released later in other regions. At the very least, it appears that the game is ready to go, so hopefully we'll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
