New Metal Slug Game Will Launch This Year

It might not be what you expected, however

During the Tencent Games Annual Conference 2020 over the weekend, SNK announced it is working on a new Metal Slug game with Tencent subsidiary TiMi Studios.

Called Metal Slug Code: J, the game will be a mobile-only experience. The biggest change in the title is its visuals. Unlike other Metal Slug titles and their traditional 2D sprites, Metal Slug Code: J will feature 3D-modeled characters.

The graphics are certainly a departure from what Metal Slug fans are used to. However, the game will still have you play on a 2D plane. More importantly, the gameplay appears to be just as hectic and frantic as gameplay in other Metal Slug titles.

Metal Slug Code: J will launch on iOS and Android by year’s end.
