SNK Corporation has announced that a Metal Slug 1st & 2nd Mission Double Pack is available today to purchase on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $14.99. Both games were originally released for NeoGeo Pocket Color in 1999 and 2000 respectively. They were made available on Nintendo Switch earlier this year though as part of the compilation NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1, which also included eight other games. However, Selection Vol. 1 retails for $39.99, so if you really only care about playing Metal Slug, then the Metal Slug 1st & 2nd Mission Double Pack might be your preferred option on the Switch eShop.
Here are some features to expect from the Metal Slug 1st & 2nd Mission Double Pack, per SNK PR, plus the duo’s launch trailer:
- Experience the simple-yet-deep shooting mechanics the METAL SLUG series is known for!
- Gone are the days of 1 shot deaths as now there is a life bar to get you through the mission!
- It wouldn’t be a METAL SLUG game if there weren’t branching paths to explore!
- Contains features like resuming where you left off or rewinding back time to avoid an early death!
Like in the NeoGeo Pocket Color Selection Vol. 1 release, it seems this Double Pack includes the original Neo Geo Pocket Color instruction manuals for the games as well.
