Metal Slug Wii details, shots

Due out in early 2007.

The Nintendo Wii version of Metal Slug Anthology is due out in early 2007, says SNK, with some screenshots to prove it.

Actually I'm not sure how they prove it, but they do go some way to confirming SNK's boast that Anthology comprises Metal Slugs 1, 2, X, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Each is "arcade perfect", the bashful publisher notes, with two-player co-operative options.

Overall the package will also feature some unlockable items and bonus games, and is expected to take advantage of the Wii's unique control scheme.

SNK Playmore president Ben Herman has previously said the Wii-mote will be "used in a new and unique way that enhances the gameplay," but for now all we're told is that it features "full support for the Nunchuk controller".

Watch out for more on Metal Slug Anthology soon, and don't forget it's also due out on PSP.
