Metal Slug Tactics is an XCOM-style tactics game by Dotemu and Leikir Studio. It combines the pixel art style of the classic arcade shooters with modern, top-down tactical gameplay.
The move to turn-based tactics might seem like a strange one given Metal Slug‘s origins as an arcade cabinet staple. We chose to see it as proof that anything can be turned into an XCOM-like with enough of a push.
For fans of the series, starved for new content, Metal Slug Tactics will be a breath of fresh air. It’s confirmation that the series does indeed live on.
