Metal Slug slimes onto PSP

Including all versions of the game, so don't pour salt on it

Here's news to excite aficionados of side-scrolling shoot-'em-ups: Ignition Entertainment is bringing a startlingly comprehensive agglomeration of the entire Metal Slug series to the PSP.

Billed as a celebration of Metal Slug's 10th anniversary, Metal Slug Anthology will consist of Metal Slugs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and X. Versions 1 and 2 will be making their debut on a non-Neo Geo console, and Wi-Fi co-operative play will add an extra level of seductiveness to the game. Sounds like a completist's dream.

And since it has a slightly vague autumn 2006 launch date, we shouldn't have to wait too long for it to arrive.
