Metal Slug Tactics Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022

As part of its Indie World Showcase on August 11, 2021, Nintendo showed off a new trailer for Metal Slug Tactics, the first new console Metal Slug game in over ten years. While Metal Slug games are known for their run and gun style gameplay, Metal Slug Tactics, as the name implies, is a tactical turn-based experience. The game is described as a “tactical RPG with roguelike elements” and brings back classic Metal Slug characters including Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma with traditional Metal Slug pixel-art graphics. 

Metal Slug Tactics initially premiered as part of Summer Game Fest 2021. The game is being developed by Keikir Studio, in association with traditional Metal Slug developer SNK. It’s being published by Dotemu, who are becoming known for their classic game revivals.

The game is releasing sometime in 2022 on Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam).
