Metal Slug Blasts Back Onto The Neo Geo In NG:DEV.TEAM’s Homebrew Shooter ‘Kraut Buster’

Kraut-Buster-Announced-For-Neo-GeoWhile SNK’s last true title in the Metal Slug series may have been released seven years ago, the spirit of the coin guzzling run-n-gunner lives on. Homebrew heroes NG:DEV.TEAM have just announced Kraut Buster for the Neo Geo MVS and AES - a frantic arcade title even SNK would be proud of.

To say Metal Slug has been an inspiration to Kraut Buster would be an understatement. This is all new release not only sports the gameplay we know and love, but also a visual style which pays tribute to the tireless pixel-art created by the talented team at Nazca. Throwing you into the deep end of Europe amidst a world war, you’re tasked with taking down an evil dictator known as Dolph Edelwolf, all whilst rescuing ‘chicks’ (surprisingly of the bird kind).

The game is due to be released sometime during the Winter months of 2015, arriving on both the Neo Geo MVS arcade system and the Neo Geo AES home system. While the MVS version can now be pre-ordered in both standard and limited editions currently, the AES version is yet to arrive. With the price tag of 399 EUR, we’re hoping that Kraut Buster follows the same path as Gunlord with a future release on the Sega Dreamcast.

As we await the all important release date, be sure to check out Kraut Buster in action with NG:DEV.Team’s teaser trailer below:

Is this a mega drive port of Metal Slug?

" NG:DEV.TEAM have just announced Kraut Buster for the Neo Geo MVS and AES - a frantic arcade title even SNK would be proud of."

Not sure yet that SNK would be proud of as it is currently, needs tidying a fair bit in my eyes, looks clunky too. Love the Metal Slug series.
