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: Tactics, the game is called x and is less “pew pew” and more “think think.”
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.
Metal Slug: Tactics is developed by Leikir Studio and Dotemu, the latter of which is also the studio behind Streets of Rage 4. As of now, the game is only confirmed for PC via Steam.
