Mission Select

Another Mission is a mode exclusive to the PlayStation version of Metal Slug X. It is unlocked by completing Arcade Mission.

Synopsis

The player controls Marco as he handles different objectives such as reaching a goal, getting points, or surviving a barrage of enemies. The mode has twenty missions (ten unlocked from the start) and each has their own high-score table. Reaching a least 2nd place on all missions rewards the player with extra images in the Art Gallery and a secret credits screen featuring the developers who ported the game to the PlayStation.

When using the Auto Save feature, the player has to exit the mode in order for the game to save scores.
