Cosplay Wednesday – Metal Slug

Metal Slug Cosplay - Gamers Heroes (4)

Metal Slug is back with the re-release of the SNK coin-op classic on the PlayStation 4 and Steam. In honor of these pixelated warriors, Gamers Heroes takes a look at the ultimate Metal Slug cosplay.

Ranrick Diaz (aka ranrick2000) teamed up with some of his closest friends to bring Metal Slug’s detailed sprites to life. With ranrick2000 as the prisoner, Onigiri Wasabi as a fat version of Tarma, MysteriousHand as Fio, and Alan as a random Morden soldier, this Metal Slug cosplay is downright uncanny.
