SNK’s classic action franchise Metal Slug returns in a tactical RPG form.
Metal Slug Tactics was shown off during Summer Games Fest, and it’ll be available on PCs via Steam. In a slick trailer, the original members Mario, Tarma, Fio, and Eri were reintroduced, together with the classic pixel art style of the series.
The game will allow players to use classic Metal Slug weapons, skill trees, perks, and an adrenaline-fueled attack system to outsmart and defeat villains.
Retro game publisher Dotemu says Metal Slug Tactics combines the turn-based tactics of an RPG with aspects of dynamic, strategic combat. Its official release date has not been announced, but it’s now on Steam so you can add it to your wishlist to get updated on its launch.
