Tencent is bringing a new Metal Slug game to mobile, and it actually looks decent

SNK and Tencent recently announced a new Metal Slug game for mobile, and it will be developer by TiMi Studios, an incredibly hot Tencent subsidiary that worked on Call of Duty Mobile, and is also currently working on Pokémon Unite. So far we know that the upcoming arcade shooter is tentatively named Metal Slug Code: J (as a placeholder), and so all we have to share right now is a teaser trailer that contains a minute of pure gameplay, and despite what you're thinking, Metal Slug Code: J actually looks like a competent successor in the Metal Slug series.

[New Game] Metal Slug Defense Moves The Classic SNK Franchise Into Familiar Free-to-Play Territory

SNK's Metal Slug series is one of the most beloved 2D side-scrolling shooters of all time, right up there with Contra. And fans of the originals were no doubt pleased when the twitchy, skillful, and delightfully pixelated games made their way to Android. So for the series' first foray into a new mobile title, it's only natural that SNK Playmore would make... a tower defense game.

Yeah, this ain't your daddy's Metal Slug. In Metal Slug Defense, you recruit soldiers and build structures in a real-time, one-lane defense layout, sending them headlong into the enemy base with no real direct control.

If you've never heard of Metal Slug... well, shame on you. It started out in the Playstation era as a modern (for the time) arcade riff on Contra, featuring copious amounts of both running and gunning paired with crushing difficulty.

[New Game] SNK Playmore's Original Metal Slug Comes To Android With Guns... Lots Of Guns

If you're of the opinion that games these days are entirely too easy, what with automatic saves, regenerating health, and veritable labyrinths of handy chest-high walls, then you'll want to pick up side-scrolling classic Metal Slug. It harkens back to a simpler time (namely 1996) when men were men, women were women, and gigantic tanks bristling with missile launchers were waiting at the end of every level.

If you're unfamiliar with Metal Slug (and didn't pick up the somewhat more modern Metal Slug 3 when it came to the Play Store earlier this year) it's a side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Contra.
