Metal Slug Tactics will arrive this spring on consoles and PC

In addition, you can try its limited demo from June 10 to 17 during the Steam Next Fest

Dotemu, company responsible for games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge and Streets of Rage 4, and Leikir Studio, developers of Rogue Lords and Synergy, announced the release of Metal Slug Tactics for the autumn of the northern hemisphere. This new title is an adaptation of the iconic run-and-gun series METAL SLUG and will be available for Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC consoles.

If that's not enough, fans will be able to lead squads into battle before launch by playing the first demo of Metal Slug Tactics, available for a limited time on PC between June 10 and 17, during the Steam Next Fest.

The gameplay trailer released today shows series stars Marco, Eri, Fio and Tarma shooting across turn-based battlefields, while showing how strategists progress through Metal Slug Tactics' fast-paced, challenging mission campaign.

What is Metal Slug Tactics about?

Each match begins with carefully building a squad from METAL SLUG's beloved cast of combatants, each armed with unique equipment, before taking on METAL SLUG's infamous enemies in battles that test intuition and efficiency. Surviving firefights with lower-ranking enemies will lead to decisive boss battles, like the missile warship revealed in today's trailer; These massive threats stand between the heroes of Metal Slug Tactics and their advance into new areas deeper behind enemy lines.

Metal Slug Tactics is both a respectful homage to a timeless classic and an imaginative new way to celebrate the renowned series, channeling METAL SLUG's unrivaled aesthetic through beautiful pixel visuals and fluid animations. Highly replayable battlefields combine diverse terrain and maps with uniquely surfaced surfaces through subtle roguelite elements, encouraging combatants to adapt and overcome unpredictable confrontations while mastering dynamic, strategic combat.

Wield classic METAL SLUG weapons by taking advantage of skill trees, perks, and an adrenaline system that fuels super-powered attacks to outwit and demolish the series' signature villains. The action is accompanied by an original soundtrack with music by Tee Lopes (TMNT: Shredder's Revenge, Sonic Mania, Mr. X Nightmare DLC from Streets of Rage 4). Metal Slug Tactics is completely developed by Leikir Studio with support from Dotemu and access provided by the IP owner, SNK.
