Metal Slug Tactics was announced yesterday at Summer Game Fest, though not for Nintendo Switch. It’s a Dotemu and SNK title that is on its way to bring back the beloved series.
According to what was shared, the game will only be coming to PC in the future, but many fans of the hybrid console are calling for it to come to Nintendo Switch as well. They base this on the fact that previous titles from the companies, such as Streets of Rage 4 or Windjammers, have been successfully released on Nintendo’s platform. They also have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge on the way.
We’ll have to wait and see if Metal Slug Tactics comes to Nintendo Switch. In the meantime, here’s the premise and trailer:
Metal Slug is back with a new installment in its universe – discover a new side to the iconic run’n’gun and jump into a dynamic tactical RPG with roguelike elements! Super fun and lighthearted, Metal Slug Tactics captures what makes Metal Slug so special and unique and brings it to the tactical genre!
