Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – HI Score Mode


Play HI Score Mode (select by pressing options) and earn at least 107,400 points.
The score is easily reached during the first level, save the Prisoners of War (tied up, topless guys with long blonde hair and a beard) shoot them to free them and pick up the weapon power ups they pass to you, collect any fruit/animals for bonus points, save grenades for the vehicle kills, use/get on the camel, if you still have it when you get to the tank, exit with X and Square (Special Move) and get in the tank instead.
Once you get the ‘Game Over’ screen Mark High Score Trophy will pop. Press X to upload score to the Rankings and the HI Score Player Trophy will also pop. Press the touchpad and select ‘Back to title screen’.

Stage 2 – 1,500,000 Points in Original Mode


Select European or Japanese Original Mode with the options button.
Once the game starts press the Touchpad, go to Game Settings,
Change Number of Players from 3 to 99, (Press left 3 times) and Difficulty from Level 4 to Level 1.
Press circle twice to back out and then X to Save settings.
Press L1 to insert a credit and Options to start the game.
Press Square to select ship.

Optional Save State
Create a save state at a good point in your gameplay by pressing the touchpad and the selecting ‘Create Interrupt Save Data’. Then, if you get “Game Over” without getting the trophies, you can quit the game to the xmb, (Optional – Upload save to Ps Plus cloud) reload the game, and play from your save state. Immediately create a new Save State as it can only be used once.

Reaching 1,500,000 Points
To pop all remaining trophies your aim is to reach 1,500,000 points, which you could earn during Stage 3.
The most points come from reaching the end of level screen with saved P.O.W and being in a vehicle. If you die you lose all saved P.O.W progress so using the save state could be a wise option, especially how it is possible to complete the game without earning enough points.

GLITCH WARNING for 1,500,000 Trophy
If you reach 1,500,000 points and the trophy does not pop, quit the game to the XMB, delete the save file by going to Settings, Application Saved Data Management, Saved Data in System Storage, Delete. Choose ACA Neogeo Metal Slug X. Relaunch the game and try again.

Trophies


 Score 1,500,000 points
The score won 1,500,000 points

Going into the game settings and using a save state will make this trophy easier. See Stage 2 above.

This trophy will pop during Stage 3 if you Ace Stages 1 and 2. (Not dying, Saving all P.O.W and ending the level in a vehicle).

Info/tips – Choose any character as the only difference is appearance.
Take your time, don’t run through the level as it will spawn more enemies, not only making it harder but probably causing bad frame rate. Clear the area, move on.
Shoot everything in site, enemies, buildings, vehicles, crates, sandbags etc
Collect any fruit/animals for bonus points.
Save grenades for vehicle and boss kills.
Get in/on a vehicle when possible. It is possible to exit and re-enter the same vehicle, exiting gives you a few seconds invincibility. Make sure to jump out when prompted before it explodes.
End of level 1 Boss – Shoot at the gun underneath to release 3 P.O.W, go to the right before they walk off screen.
