As a result, finding a complete Metal Slug was the most important factor for me.
I think I found a good one too. Only slightly sun faded, which lowered the cost for me.
ON the back, it pretty much says crazy, hectic action! And plugs the differences in the game.
- Arcade mission mode
- Combat School mode.
- Art Gallery with design and concept illustrations
- Ending theme words
Opening the box we see, the dividers and stuff. Ooooooh! Game CD in the case and cart above it.
I was surprised to find out that that cartridge has a slightly different shape to the Capcom one and looks a bit more plain as well.
The CD case has the same artwork on the front as the box. The back of the CD case doesn’t have anything. As per usual, the CD has a slightly different take on the art. NOICE
The instruction manual is pretty well done with control descriptions, item meaning, a few sketches and character introductions, as well as the words to the ending theme. For karaoke once you finish of course… Or if you put it into a CD player. I always loved that option with the Saturn!
So there you have it. That is the packaging style of all the RAM cart games that came out for the SEGA Saturn. That includes Waku Waku 7 and the various Capcom games as well. Plus a rather nice sample of an SNK game box to have a look at. The added bonus for me of course is that the game is pretty damn good too! I really love Metal Slug! Frenetic, crazy shooting fun! Hope you enjoyed looking as much as I did.
