Metal Slug XX & Aqua Double Up The Shooting Action On Live Arcade This WeekS

Get ready to enjoy two heavy doses of heavy metal shoot 'em up action on Xbox Live Arcade this week as Metal Slug XX and Aqua digitally ship for the platform this Wednesday.

Metal Slug XX costs a cool 1200 Microsoft Points, but gives Metal Slug fans more of that side-scrolling heavy machine gunning they so desperately crave. Expect Neo Geo caliber resolutions and a few cameos from The King of Fighters cast, joining the Metal Slug crew in search of explosive thrills and POWs.

Aqua, 800 Microsoft Points, takes its shooting top down and on water, a lovely looking naval shooter that's more tactical than twitch.
