Metal Slug: Awakening, the highly-anticipated mobile adaptation of the popular shooter franchise, is finally out of the oven and will be seeing a soft launch across multiple regions. The soft launch will officially start at 2 PM on June 28 until the end of the day on July 11, 2023.
The game will be playable in Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, and will be exclusive for Android devices at the time of the limited launch. Interested players may be able to register through this link.
In addition to the registration, aspiring participants must also download the game on their Android device by 2PM on June 27, 2023.
As a soft launch, the program will be restricted only to 5,000 individuals per server. Upon reaching the expected quota, the server will automatically be closed, to ensure a perfect user experience among the players.
Based on the highly-popular 2D side-scrolling shooter developed by SNK, Metal Slug: Awakening retains the same core gameplay mechanics that make the entire series addicting to players while simultaneously innovating on the tried-and-tested formula. The game is being developed and supervised by TiMi Studio.
One of the most obvious changes seen in MSA is in its shift to 3D-like visuals, including its roster comprising Eri, Fio, Marco, and Tarma, which makes for a refreshing new look to the iconic series. The super vehicle SV-0001 and Camel are making a comeback as well, adding more spice to the already explosive title.
New features such as the raging combat mode, “The Maze,” “Hot Pursuit,” and “Joint Operation” are also things to look forward to in-game.
