It’s been a while since we’ve heard about the new Metal Slug game in development, but Korean subsidiary SNK Interactive has announced that the game is slated for release within 2020. Not only that, but there will also be a new smartphone game that has yet to be officially announced. [Thanks, Inven via @Gatoray on Twitter!]
Both games are currently in development at SNK proper in Japan and are separate from the Metal Slug IP smartphone game that is being developed by Tencent’s Timi Studio. Development on the mobile game is currently 80% complete, and the game is set to be a “2D side scrolling card-type game” that will release for both iOS and Android devices.
