First gameplay trailer released for Metal Slug Tactics

Focus Home Interactive and DotEmu have released the first gameplay trailer for Metal Slug Tactics. Metal Slug Tactics is a grid-based tactical adaptation of the iconic run-and-gun METAL SLUG series and this trailer will give you a glimpse at its gameplay mechanics.

Metal Slug Tactics reunites Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma as they lead the Peregrine Falcon Squad into a new battlefield through dynamic, strategic combat. Players wield classic METAL SLUG weaponry, leveraging skill trees, perks, and a super attack-fueling adrenaline system to outwit and demolish flanks of the series’ signature villains.

Metal Slug Tactics’ challenging missions build levels from different combinations of hand-crafted terrain tiles, keeping battle layouts unpredictable and ensuring clashes are won through calculated strategy rather than memorization. Roguelite elements make missions highly replayable and victories feel truly earned, but should a cunning squad or fiendish boss persevere, rounds are quick to jump back into.

The game will also come with gorgeous pixel art and fluid animation which faithfully channels the series’ timeless aesthetic. Additionally, it will have original music by Tee Lopes. Lopes was the man behind the soundtrack of Sonic Mania, League of Legends and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

Metal Slug Tactics will release on PC in 2022.
