If the game design is going to be anything other than a replica of the Neo Geo or GBA Metal Slug games, then it's not Metal Slug and doesn't deserve to be called that.

I wouldn't bother, they don't deserve to be recapped. I suggest disassembling an ATX PSU and put the components inside the original CBM PSU case. Using a Meanwell could also be another option.
