Metal Slug: Awakening is the mobile version of the iconic run-and-gun game Metal Slug that is licensed by SNK and fully supervised and developed by TiMi Studio. The game was first unveiled at Tencent’s game conference in 2021 and has since then launched in Mainland China this April.
From arcade to mobile platform, Metal Slug: Awakening retains most of the signature features that made the classic shoot-em-up game legendary: from the simple yet addictive side-scrolling gameplay to various maps & bosses–as well as the iconic heroes like Marco, Tarma, Fio, Eri plus the well-known super vehicles–SV-001, Camel and the exclusive weapon systems.
Aside from preserving the original Metal Slug gameplay, Metal Slug: Awakening will include new modes like “Hot Pursuit” and “The Maze”.
