Metal Slug Tactics revives the classic SNK franchise

Elevate your enterprise data technology and strategy at Transform 2021.

Dotemu announced today during the Summer Game Fest that it is working with SNK on Metal Slug Tactics.

This a tactical take on SNK’s classic run-‘n’-gun series. And, as you’d expect from a Dotemu game, it looks gorgeous.

Dotemu has made its name reviving franchises with gorgeous reboots, like Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. It is also working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

For this project, Dotemu is working with Leikir Studio, based in Ivry sur Seine, France.

In the sizzle trailer, Dotemu showed off a few characters (Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma), teased how characters use sync abilities for attacks, and, of course, had a bunch of short-barreled tanks with large muzzles.
