SNK and Nintendo, sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-wii.
According to IGN, SNK has hopped on-board the Wii train after a long absence from Nintendo consoles. The first title on the block will be Metal Slug Anthology, a collection of classic Metal Slug titles. Fortunately, they won't just be straight ports; they're being enhanced to play with the Wii's innovative controller. SNK Playmore USA Corporation president Ben Herman had this to say on the subject:
"Fans worldwide have been looking forward to our return to Nintendo platforms and what better way then to bring our complete Metal Slug arcade collection to Wii. The Wii controller will be used in a new and unique way that enhances the gameplay. Our fans have demanded that we support Nintendo platforms. Let the celebration begin."
More on the title is expected to be revealed at E3 where, IGN reports, the game is supposed to be playable. Until then, let's all take Ben Herman's advice and get this party afloat; SNK is back on a Nintendo console!
