Metal slug News: SNK HEARD THE PRAYERS
If you’re like us, you surely remember all the hours you spent eliminating soldiers with Tarma, Marco, Fio and Eri in Metal Slug, one of the gamers’ most loved shooters. Although he had been missing for a while, the series will finally be back.
During the Summer Game Fest the new title Metal Slug Tactics was announced that will come from the hand of SNK, Leikir Studio and Dotemu in a new tactical shooter with the famous characters of the saga. Although it may not be back as you expected, the visual art is interesting enough to give it a try.
IT’S LIKE METAL SLUG AND XCOM HAD A CHILD
From what we can see it is a fusion of the Metal Slug characters with a game mode that reminds us of the popular saga, XCOM where in turns you will have to plan your strategy and your movements in order to eliminate the opposing soldiers.
You can assemble your own team made up of your favorite characters and also if at any time you feel that you will not be able to win the battle, you can request reinforcements that will bring you artillery and supposed vehicles such as the titular tank, Metal Slug.
It will also have roguelike elements, because after each battle you will gain battle experience that will help you improve your characters and their weapons so that you can be victorious more easily in your next confrontations.
At the moment it was only said that it would reach PC through the Steam platform, where you can already put it on your wishlist. But we hope that it will be available on consoles for all of us who loved this series and grew up with it.
