Following Samurai Shodown 2019, Wayô Records and SNK Corporation once again join forces to deliver an international edition of Metal Slug 3‘s original soundtrack, in honor of the game’s 20 anniversary! Originally exclusive to Japan, this album is now available in two, brand-new editions: a vinyl record and a digipak CD.

Composed by the legendary SNK Sound Team, this soundtrack has a lot in common with the other titles in the series, but stands as the densest and most inspired. Filled with biting humor and explosive action, Metal Slug 3 is often regarded by fans as the best game in the series!
