E3 2021 surprise! Metal Slug Tactics Just Announced. The legendary shooter saga to which so many hours we have spent stuck in arcade and consoles, will return with a new installment developed by the good people of Dotemu and with a new style of game that its creators define as tactical roguelite RPG. At the moment, it has only been announced for PC.
For those of you who do not know, Metal Slug is a saga shoot’em up with style run ‘n gun, owned by SNK and created by Nazca Corporation in 1996, which is characterized by its explosive action, sense of humor and a graphic section pixel art with an insane level of detail. If we do not count spin-offs and remakes, in total there are seven installments (the first three being perhaps the most remembered).
For its part, Dotemu is a French study that has become known thanks to its adaptations to modern systems of recreational games, including games like The King of Fighters 2000, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Samurai Showdown V Special or Windjammers, as well as Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug 3 and Metal Slug X.
But it was in 2020 when they finished hitting the ball, thanks to the work they did bringing back a saga as legendary as Streets of Rage with the fantastic Streets of Rage 4. Not only that, but at the moment they are also “cooking” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, which looks fabulous. And now also Metal Slug Tactics!
So now you know we have Metal Slug Tactics on the way. What did you think of this ad? You want to run and shoot again while we hear that about … Heavy Machine Gun!
