Metal Slug Antholog-WiiTM

Classic franchise coming to Nintendo's New Gen console

Date: 24th Nov ‘06. The 10th Anniversary of the much-loved Metal Slug franchise is upon us. To celebrate this milestone, SNK Playmore and Ignition Entertainment is pleased to announce the European release of Metal Slug Anthology for Wii™.

1996 saw the introduction of Metal Slug on the NEO GEO MVS arcade system. The success of this title and its subsequent sequels – spanning the last 10 years – has made the franchise one of the most-popular arcade and console gaming franchises ever.

This anthology delivers all of the fire power and game play you would expect from SNK Playmore.

‘The popularity of Metal Slug, whether it be on home console or Arcade is immense’ says Peter Rollinson, Product Manager, Ignition Entertainment ‘utilising the unique control method of Wii™, can only enhance the already well loved and familiar gameplay associated with the series’
