Commando: Steel Disaster is a new side-scrolling shoot-'em-up from Lexicon Entertainment and XS Games that is set to come out for DS in North America in Q3 2008. The game appears to be very reminiscent of SNK's Metal Slug series as it uses a similar graphical style.

Yep, I'm hoping it'll be decent. Though I'm worried the genre might be easy to mess up.
