SNK Playmore announced today that Metal Slug 7 will be released for the Nintendo DS this fall. Continuing its 2D, arcade-shooting roots, MS7 will contain seven brand new missions, six playable characters, and a heap of new weapons.

The game will also feature new enormous bosses, Slugs to steer and extra gameplay modes. Plus, it will make you unashamed to play on a pink DS.

“Truth be told, I have a pink DS and was embarrassed to play it in public. Now with Metal Slug 7 loaded, I have no qualms,” said Ajay Chadha, President of Ignition Entertainment. “Needless to say, and in all seriousness, we are very excited to announce our partnership with SNK Playmore USA to give both core and casual gamers a whole new insight into the unique, all-action, eye-popping world that is Metal Slug.”

Developed by SNK Playmore Corporation and published by Ignition Entertainment, Metal Slug 7 hopes to return gamers to the non-stop action and frantic gameplay the series has always been known for.

Given the success of Contra 4 at essentially the same thing, this should be an excellent addition to the DS shooter library.
