Focus Home Interactive and KeokeN Interactive have announced that Metal Slug Tactics and Deliver Us Mars have been delayed until 2023.
Metal Slug Tactics is a grid-based tactical adaptation of the iconic run-and-gun METAL SLUG series. The game will feature classic METAL SLUG weaponry, leveraging skill trees, perks, and a super attack-fueling adrenaline system. The game will also come with gorgeous pixel art and fluid animation which faithfully channels the series’ timeless aesthetic.
Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma are tinkering away to make #MetalSlugTactics as explosive as possible on release, but the squad needs a bit more time in the shop to prepare for the battles ahead. See you in 2023! @LeikirStudio x @Dotemu

According to the game’s description, KeokeN has used RT in order to enhance the game’s shadows and reflections.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
