Are you looking for a classic retro game on your PC? You’ve just found one. Just last week SNK Playmore’s Metal Slug 3 appeared on Steam as a closed beta. Word was that the game would be released in February, although we didn’t have a specific date. Well, it has arrived just in time and is available as a pre-order on PC.
Metal Slug 3 is up for pre-order on Steam for the low price of just $5.99. Just realize that this $5.99 price is not permanent. It is a promotion where the developers are knocking 25% from the original price of $7.99. This offer will be valid until the February 7th, so we imagine that is when the game will be released, although that is just a guess. After that it will be full price.
The Steam version of Metal Slug 3 will have full controller support if you want to play it the old school way. It will also support Steam’s Big Picture mode, achievements, and leaderboards. The game is compatible with Windows-based operating systems, however it is not compatible with Windows XP. If you want some retro gameplay, this is one to get.
