Metal Slug has returned, but it is a very different game now. A turn-based tactical strategy game from SNK that resembles Fire Emblem as much as Metal Slug, the game is called Metal Slug Tactics and is less “pew pew” and more “think think.”
“MISSION START!” 📣@Dotemu, @LeikirStudio and @SNKPofficial join forces to reveal #MetalSlugTactics.
Lead your squad to victory with Marco, Eri, Fio and Tarma in this brand-new tactical roguelite RPG on PC!

The latest in the very long-running Metal Gear series, it still features the game’s classic Neo Geo pixel art style, but it appears to also make use of fully animated cinematics. Destructible environments can be used to get the edge on your enemy.
The game will feature skill trees and perks, along with an adrenaline system that you can use to get the edge on some of the game’s more dangerous enemies. There are also roguelite elements included, so you’ll have to be at your very best or risk losing some of your progress.
