Metal Slug heading to XBLA

In Japan anyway.

Metal Slug is on its way to Xbox Live Arcade, according to a leaflet handed out by SNK Playmore at the Tokyo Game Show.

The bad news is that there's no word on whether it'll turn up here yet - SNK was only specifying Japan, and our inquiries in the UK so far have drawn a blank. We'll let you know.

And that's about it really, with no word on Japanese pricing or release date information either, although 1UP speculates that the game ported may be Metal Slug 1 based on artwork shown at SNK's TGS booth.

We'll let you know more soon.
