Another SNK classic is due to pull into the PS3 and PSP "NeoGeo Station." Officially coming to Japan on August 25 (alongside World Heroes), the top-down run-and-gunner Shock Troopers was also rated for release in Australia, indicating plans for SNK to release it elsewhere in the world.

In Shock Troopers, players control one of eight squad members to fight through the forces of the evil "Bloody Scorpions" faction and rescue a scientist and his granddaughter. It was never officially released for the Neo Geo home system, available only as an arcade "MVS" cartridge -- and on the SNK Arcade Classics disc years later.
