‘Metal Slug Tactics’ announced with gameplay trailer

Not the turn-based tactics game we expected to see today

A brand-new Metal Slug game, Metal Slug Tactics, has been announced for PC.

The franchise originated as a run-and-gun series in 1996 and has been successful since then. However, there hasn’t been a new entry in the franchise since 2009.

In a departure from the shoot ’em up mechanics of the previous entries, Metal Slug Tactics will slow things down through the introduction ot turn-based combat.
