ms6.jpg Over at the Metal Slug Database, they've posted an in-depth look at Metal Slug 6, the latest in the classic SNK series, complete with screenshots and plenty of spoilers.

Apparently, we can expect multiple alien races and some pretty nifty new vehicles, including a donkey carrying a howitzer and an underground drilling machine - maybe this is a cut above the other recent Metal Slugs? But... the 'Days Of Our Lives'-style plot tragedy? Sadly, 'much-loved' character Allen O'Neil won't be returning to the series: "The fact that Allen has been revealed as a cyborg in Metal Slug 4 will not allow him to appear any more on other new Metal Slug games." Awwwww. (Via IC.)
