Metal Slug Tactics official key art for the turn-based tactics spin-off

I hope you like hearing about interesting games get delayed over and over again, because I have a brand new one to tell you about! Metal Slug Tactics, a turn-based adaptation of the popular run'n'gun series, will not be releasing this year as previously planned, but rather at some point in 2023.

"Rest assured, we are working really hard to make Metal Slug Tactics as explosive as possible on release, but for that, we need a bit more time in the shop to prepare for the battles ahead," explains the very brief update. "Soldiers, we would like to thank you all for the everlasting love and support you have given us since the reveal. See you in 2023!"

While I can't tell you much more about the delay itself, I can at least share with you a sneak peek at what the gameplay is going to be like. Have a gander, it's remarkably well animated:

Once we get an actual release date, ideally accompanied by a lengthier gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about Metal Slug Tactics over at Steam. Enjoy!
