The 'X' in Metal Slug X does not stand for 10. No, the X stands for this is the nineties and everything is xtreme to the max. The Metal Slug part of the name, that stands for this is a game about running and jumping and shooting the heck out of everything.

Metal Slug X, King Of Fighters 98 UM Coming To Steam
