Today’s Launch: “Metal Slug Tactics” Gameplay Trailer and PC Demo



Dotemu and Leikir Studio have unveiled a new trailer for the Metal Slug Tactics, offering a fresh take on the original game’s combat system. The game demo incorporates a strategy-based approach to combat across a region of the full game, encouraging players to deploy a team from your squad’s barracks, and understanding each character’s unique abilities for tackling a variety of enemies. The game introduces a playable character, Tarma, who proves crucial in boss level battles.

Tactics is a delightful blend of nostalgia and creativity, fashioned as an ode to the classic Metal Slug series while introducing new elements. The game’s appeal lies in its highly replayable battlefields, which combine unique hand-crafted terrain layouts with subtle roguelite elements, emphasizing strategic combat. Classic weaponry from original series, skill trees, perks, and a super attack system add depth and dynamism to combat. Moreover, the game captures Metal Slug’s timeless aesthetic through endearing pixel art.

Leikir Studio, with Dotemu’s support and access granted by SNK as the intellectual property owner, has developed the game. An original soundtrack by Tee Lopes provides engaging background music. The game will be available this fall on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
