The Metal Slug series is returning once again for another adventure. During the weekend, the Japanese video game producer SNK (Shin Nihon Kikaku) Corporation and TiMi Studios, a subsidiary of Tencent Games that produced Call of Duty: Mobile, released its trailer for the new mobile game, Metal Slug Code: J. Unfortunately, the release date has yet to be determined when viewing the trailer. Though, as Tencent Games also partnered up with The Pokemon Company for Pokemon Unite, fans of the Metal Slug series are hyped to see how this game will turn out in the near future.
In addition to the trailer, press releases were made by both companies. Stated by SNK Game Producer Yasuyuki Oda, the game has “such an amazing history of great action and gameplay so we’re proud to bring this to mobile gamers around the world.” We’re happy to work closely with such a strong developer as TiMi Studios on this latest Metal Slug title.” In response to the comment, TiMi J1 Studio’s General Manager Winco Qin states how “Metal Slug is one of the great arcade franchises and a perfect fit for mobile play. Our team has been focused on a faithful recreation of the game’s classic shoot-’em-up style, easily accessible for players that’s fun for new and existing fans of the genre.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the series, Metal Slug originally launched in 1996. Fast forward a few years, the game’s popularity inevitably launched the Metal Slug series and has continued to transition over to modern devices. In the game, users are part of the Peregrine Falcon (PF) squad, a small but highly skilled member group. They will fight against the army of General Donald Morgen to prevent the creation of a New World Order and complete their tasks with a run and gun style game, fight against large enemies, and pick-up strong weapons as they proceed to their goal.
