「HD Metal Slug in the Works? SNK Playmore says announcement 'soon'.」

UK, September 18, 2008 - SNK Playmore has revealed that it is looking into giving the aging Metal Slug series an HD refit, potentially taking the shooting franchise down the same path as the forthcoming King of Fighters XII.

"In order to meet our fans demands for an HD version of Metal Slug, we're considering bringing this series to the new generation of consoles in a similar way to KOF XII," said SNK Playmore in an interview with IGN to be published later today, continuing, "We look forward to announcing this someday soon."

Metal Slug 7, an all new instalment exclusive to the DS, is coming to these shores later this month.
