Wayô Records presses Metal Slug X vinyl soundtrack album
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.
Preorders are also open at Brooklyn-based record label Ship to Shore, Light in the Attic in Seattle, Black Screen Records in Germany, and HighScore Records in France.
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 Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify and Apple Music. From the product page:
