Bitmap Books are at it again and this time it’s all about slugs. Not garden slugs, but Metal Slugs.
Metal Slug: The Ultimate History looks set to be the first officially licenced book to cover the history of the extremely popular franchise that begun in arcades in 1996.
Bitmap Book have also announced that SNK have offered ‘unprecedented access’ to it’s vast archives of concept artwork and illustrations, some of which ‘are being made public for the first time’.
The book will also contain eleven exclusive interviews that of which will include Kazuma Kujo and Toshikazu Tanaka speaking about the creations and ‘evolution’ of the run-and- gun phenomenon .
The book promises to offer the ‘most complete’ insight into the series yet.
Bitmap books have a superb history of quality books that have captured gaming moments in history that for the past few years have been a great source of reference and nostalgia whilst sitting on the coffee table.
Without a doubt, this one will be no less than what fans of the series deserve.
Let’s hope Peregrine Falcon Squad are up to the task.
Metal Slug: The Ultimate History will be available for pre-order in July and delivery is planned for September 2019. Bitmap Books will release more details soon.
