Metal Slug Tactics will be released in the fall

The beloved franchise returns with Metal Slug Tactics and, starting June 10th, will have a unique demo on Steam Next Fest. Publisher Dotemu and developer Leikir Studio have announced that Metal Slug Tactics, an adaptation of the iconic run-and-gun series Metal Slug, will be released during the fall. Metal Slug Tactics was announced at the 20 21 Summer Game Fest and was initially set to release in 2022. However, Dotemu soon announced that Metal Slug Tactics was being delayed to 2023 and has since remained in radio silence.

In Metal Slug Tactics, each match begins with the strategic construction of a squad from Metal Slug's beloved cast of fighters, each armed with unique equipment. As the player, you'll face off against the franchise's infamous enemies in battles that test your intuition and efficiency. Surviving shootouts with lesser-ranked enemies will lead to decisive battles against bosses, such as the missile-firing warship revealed in the trailer. These towering threats stand between you and your march into new, deeper areas behind enemy lines.
