A double dose of Metal Slug action, out now on Switch

SNK’s NeoGeo Pocket collection just keeps growing on the Nintendo Switch, expanding today with the Metal Slug 1st and 2nd Mission Double Pack.

Slugging it out

One of SNK’s best-loved non-fighting series is Metal Slug. I don’t think it’s too outside the lines to say that. And now the Pocket titles Metal Slug 1st and 2nd mission are getting a bundled, mini-collection for the Switch.

You might not be familiar with the titles, but these are the handheld versions of Metal Slug, that first appeared on the NeoGeo Pocket console. As of late, the publisher has been porting quite a few of that system’s games to the Switch, including both titles here.

In fact, they’re also available as a part of NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol.1. We reviewed that set here, and it contains a 10pack of titles from the now-defunct console.

If you’re more of a Slug fan only though, then this double pack is for you.

Metal Slug 1st and 2nd Mission is available right now on Switch, and will run you $14.99 USD.
