Prepare to take on an army of fascists with Marco, Tarma, Fio, and Eri in a new battleground, as Metal Slug Tactics has been announced — which brings the beloved run and gun series to the tactical strategy scene with grid-based action warfare!
Here’s the reveal trailer for this SNK series turned into a new kind of video game!
Here’s the overview and details on this brand new direction for the Metal Slug franchise via press release.
Metal Slug Tactics reunites Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma as they lead the Peregrine Falcon Squad into a new battlefield through dynamic, strategic combat. Players wield classic METAL SLUG weaponry, leveraging skill trees, perks, and a super attack-fueling adrenaline system to outwit and demolish flanks of the series’ signature villains. Paired with gorgeous pixel art and fluid animation which faithfully channels the series’ timeless aesthetic, Metal Slug Tactics is a natural extension of METAL SLUG’s beloved visuals. Each mission’s heated battle is energized through original music by Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, League of Legends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, and Streets of Rage 4’s Mr. X Nightmare DLC among other titles). Metal Slug Tactics is both a respectful homage to an all-time classic and an imaginative new way to celebrate the renowned series.
