The Steam version of SNKs' run-and-gun arcade game Metal Slug 3 is available for pre-order via the distribution platform for $5.99.
Confirmed for a February release window last week, the game is marked down by 25 percent off its full price of $7.99 until Feb. 7; however, a specific launch date was not listed at the time of writing.
The Steam version of Metal Slug 3 features full controller support with Steam's Big Picture mode, achievements and leaderboards. The title is compatible with Windows Vista, 7 and 8 operating systems, but does not support Windows XP. Currently in beta, the recent version of the classic title includes an arcade mode featuring five stages with "multiple branching paths," stage selection options, online multiplayer as well as online and local co-op
Metal Slug 3 was originally released across arcades in 2000 on Neo-Geo MVS machines. It was ported to several platforms in the following years, such as Android, iOS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Wii, Xbox and Xbox 360.
