Run and Gun Heaven
The book will feature stacks of information about the series and will have loads of concept art and some never before seen documents and pictures related to the development of this much-loved hand drawn and animated Run and Gun series.
Backed by SNK
This book is officially backed by SNK, the makers of the legendary Neo Geo and will not just be full of pictures (which it will) it will also have lots of content about the history of Metal Slug.
Speaking of content, the book will have 11 detailed interviews with the original developers of the game which will undoubtedly provide in-depth insight in to the games and how they were made.
