Metal Slug Anthology is crawling its way to slime up store shelves this Winter.
Lexicon Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the worldwide rights to Chronos Twins for DS; the company previously scored a deal for American McGee’s Bad Day LA. The company is also in final discussions for another four DS titles.
Chronos Twins, scheduled for a Q1 2007 release, plays on the concept of time travel. Here’s what players will get into: “To successfully complete levels, players will maneuver through an area and work within the limitations of each time period in a side-scrolling environment. The goal is to control both the present-time hero while exploring the planet to defeat alien threats. Both time periods are fully visible through a split-screen engine that displays the past and present versions of the exact same location.”
SNK has announced at GDC that it will be releasing a Metal Slug compilation on the PSP. The collection will consist of Metal Slug 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, as well as Metal Slug X. All titles will feature co-op play via local wi-fi.
The compilation is slated for release this November.
