It's only a snippet, but as a grizzled veteran of the series I couldn't resist. Metal Slug 4 is currently in development from Japanese developers Noise Factory and Mega Enterprises according to Core Magazine. The latest instalment in the 2D shooter series will begin testing in Japanese arcades later this week according to the website, which makes it sound less 'in development' and more 'practically ready', although specifics remain undisclosed. Metal Slug First and Second Missions were two of the best games released on SNK's ill-fated Neo Geo Pocket Color platform, and enjoyed a brief bout of success in the scramble to buy up NGPC games at the end of its term in Europe and the USA.
