Metal Slug Tactics gameplay footage shows off its chunky sprites and vivid backgrounds

Metal Slug Tactics was a lovely surprise when first announced back at E3 2024. The sidescrolling run-and-gun series didn’t seem to have a tactics game in it, but it turns out it does, and Leikir Studio is really leaning into what makes the Metal Slug games special: the art style.

The footage above was released today as part of the latest Nintendo Direct (yep: it’s coming to Switch). If you missed it back in June, Metal Slug Tactics is a grid-based tactical RPG, and the combination of the isometric view and the lush pixel art is reminiscent of Into the Breach. It’s definitely a joy to look at.
