Metal Slug 4 (c) 2002 Playmore Corp.

The popular series of side-scrolling action games continues, introducing all-new characters into the plot.

The virus has been created by the terrorist group known as Amadeus, and must be stopped by the four main heroes in the story.

In the game introduction, the team discover that Morden is still alive and probably behind Amadeus...
