The next Metal Slug game on mobile will be called Metal Slug Code: J. Maybe. The title isn’t confirmed at this stage. At the very least we hope they move the colon.
Developed by Tencent subsidiary TiMi Studio, which appeared on these pages last week thanks to its involvement with the forthcoming Pokemon Unite, Metal Slug Code: J will be a side-scrolling arcade shooter with slick 2.5D visuals and innumerable bereavements.
We can tell that because SNK has just released a new trailer, showcasing an updated look for the much loved series, and some mobile-friendly controls. While details are relatively thin on the ground, you can expect Metal Slug Code: J to be free-to-play.
TiMi Games has a solid track record when it comes to porting classic video game franchises to mobile, so there’s reason to be optimistic if you’re a Metal Slug fan.
More news as we get it.
