It’s like Metal Slug and XCOM had a child
From what we can see it is a fusion of the characters of Metal slug 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 to be able to eliminate the opposing soldiers.
You will be able to 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 will be able to request reinforcements that will bring you artillery and for 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.
