Metal Slug, an action franchise from SNK, is back … as a tactical RPG! Announced during the presentation of the Summer Games Fest today, Metal Slug Tactics is a new entry in the series aimed at PCs on Steam. The sleek trailer reintroduces the original team and makes it clear that the game will do justice to the pixel art aesthetic of the original series. According to publisher Dotemu, it will combine turn-based tactical RPG play (similar to Final Fantasy Tactics) with rogue type elements. There’s no release date yet, but it’s definitely a game we’ll be keeping an eye on.
