If you’re used to seeing these guys do run n’ gun and are wondering what turned Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma in a different direction — here’s the overview of this unique entry to the series via press release!
Metal Slug Tactics is both a respectful homage to an all-time classic and an imaginative new way to celebrate the renowned series, channeling its timeless aesthetic through gorgeous pixel art and fluid animation. The game’s highly replayable battlefields pair shuffled layouts from hand-crafted terrain tiles with subtle roguelite elements, challenging fighters to adapt and overcome unpredictable clashes as they master 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.
