If Metal Slug On Wii U Featured Augmented Reality...

This (sadly) fake creation, combining the Wii U and perennial side-scrolling favourite Metal Slug, shows us a future where augmented reality games aren't a massive joke. A future where disgusting cups filled with cigarettes can double as cover for tiny, pixellated heroes and a container for your used cancer sticks. A future where you have to engage in the thoroughly analogue activity of cutting out small squares with Xs on them to make full use of your digital video game.

It's a future I want to see... thought I'm not sure how the multiplayer would work without everyone standing on top of each other...

    Actually, I'd be pretty content with any new Metal Slug game. I know it's been a slow downhill ride from 3, but they're still damn good fun.

      I'm still pissed the DS version didn't have wireless co-op.

    holy crap i would pay so much money for that to exist!!!

    I hate the term "cancer sticks". Reminds me of Rob Reiner in South Park.

    The main stumbling block with this is there are no cameras on the back of the Wii U tablet controller....Doh!
