PARIS, 11 August 2021 – Publisher Dotemu and developer Leikir Studio today announced that Metal Slug Tactics, a grid-based tactical adaptation of METAL SLUG’s iconic run-and-gun series, will bring war to Nintendo Switch, as shown during Indie World. The title was previously announced as a PC exclusive via Steam, and both versions are slated for release in 2022.
With the announcement we can see in action the offensive power of Marco, Eri, Fio and Tarma who launch into battle from a headquarters full of references to the history of the long series. The team returns with their signature arsenal, including the dependable Heavy Machine Gun and the devastating SVX-15D Slugnoid mecha, ready for new tactical combat. We see the team in action, check out their new SYNC attack, and the reunion with formidable boss Aeshi Nero in today’s new trailer.
