Two New Metal Slug Games Planned to Release This Year on Console and Mobile

Metal Slug

It seems like SNK Interactive is planning to release two new Metal Slug games this year for console and mobile. According to Siliconera, the company announced that a series will be getting two new games for both consoles and mobile platforms.

Except for the recent remakes that were released for consoles over the past years, the games will be completely new titles in the series, which effectively means that the franchise is seeing a new addition in over 10 years.

A Korean online magazine Inven has revealed that the new titles are currently in development in Japan, which includes both the console version and the mobile version. The magazine also clarifies that the new titles remain separate from what Tencent’s TiMi studio is developing for a mobile version. This means that there are three Metal Slug games in development if we count Tencent together with SNK.

The magazine goes on to state that the development of the mobile title is 80% complete, and that it will be a 2D side-scrolling card-type game that will run on both iOS and Android devices when it releases later this year. A release date for both the new games has not been revealed, which comes as no surprise as we don’t even have any other game-related information yet from SNK.

The CEO of SNK Interactive, Jeon Se-hwan had previously mentioned that both the console and the mobile games will be released this year and will be targeting a demographic of both 10-20 and 30-40 year olds. Considering that both the games are planned for a release this year, we could be getting tons of information, gameplay details, and release announcements this summer, or in the coming months.
