Jerry on 2021-10-05
Wayô Records has pressed the soundtrack for developer SNK Corporation's Metal Slug X on vinyl, with shipping estimated for mid-October. Music for the sprite-based, run-and-gun platformer is by Takushi Hiyamuta.

Debuting in 1999 for the Neo Geo MVS, the enhanced modification of Metal Slug 2 eliminated previous instances of slowdown, and substitutes the time of day, enemy count and background music on various stages.

Metal Slug X stars the Peregrine Falcon Strike Force and centers on their battles against both the tyrannical General Morden and a hostile army of extraterrestrials. The protagonists of the original title are now aided by two additional female playable characters, Eri Kasamoto and Fiolina Germi.

Arcade Archives' Metal Slug X port is available for Windows, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Metal Slug X for Windows, Mac and Linux is available through GOG. SNK's 18-track digital soundtrack is streaming on Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited.
