Metal Slug XX is a side-scrolling, arcade-style, run-and-gun shooter exploding with the same winning formula of over-the-top action and cartoon mayhem that has kept Metal Slug a premier franchise for over a decade.

Frantic and fun, serious Metal Slug fans and casual gamers alike can relive the glory and charm of old school cooperative arcade play, teaming with a friend via ad-hoc multiplayer to outrun and outshoot hundreds of enemies and liberate as many prisoners as possible.

Choose between six zany Metal Slug characters and shoot through seven action-packed levels with varying obstacles, numerous enemies, and diverging paths. Confident players can put their skills to the test by playing more than 70 mission-based trials in "Combat School." With its unmistakable style and personality, nostalgic gameplay, more than 70 missions, and the ability to play with a friend, Metal Slug XX is the definitive portable Metal Slug arcade experience.

Metal Slug XX for PSP system is the new addition to the famed Metal Slug series that captures all the glory of the arcade experience and more.  After General Morden is defeated and captured, a mysterious army arrives from the future to save him. They reveal themselves to be the Mars People and their goal is to provide their future leader with special advanced weaponry to take on his enemies in the present. Classic Metal Slug characters Marco, Tarma, Fio, Eri, Ralf, and Clark return once again to take on General Morden and his new and improved Rebel Army.
