The series is also strange as it is one of the few 2D scrollers from that era that topped out at 30 fps.

What I find baffling, however, is that later versions of Metal Slug created for non-MVS hardware also run at 30 fps. I see no reason why MS6 and 7 (which aren't great games, I suppose) don't operate at 60 fps. There should be no issues for the hardware they were created for.

As far as I know, every other major SNK game for their hardware ran at 60 fps. Metal Slug was obviously just too demanding and even hitting 30 fps was difficult at times for them.
