SNK's Metal Slug 3 just landed on the Xbox Live Arcade this morning and these Slugs are ready to blow stuff up. For 800 Microsoft points Metal Slug 3 will come packed with hours of side scrolling action, two player local co-op, (sorry, no Xbox Live functionality) Xbox Live co-op and updated HD graphics. It's time to stop General Morden once and for all fanboys. Your purchase will prevent the New World Order from forming and anarchy from infecting all of society ... go get 'em Slug.
