TencentGames studios SNK and TiMiStudios have officially revealed a first gameplay trailer for their brand new Metal Slug game codenamed Code: J that will be coming to mobile sometime this year.
Earlier this year, TencentGames studios SNK and TiMiStudios revealed their brand new project from Metal Slug franchise for Android and iOS. Back then, the devs confirmed that their new action shooter game is set to arrive sometime this year with improved visuals but classic 2D side-scrolling Metal Slug style to keep faithful to the original title.
Today, we have a first look at the Metal Slug Code: J gameplay and it is safe to say that the devs nailed the feel and look of Metal Slug almost perfectly.
As you can see in the trailer below, the game is jam-packed with action, various weapons and abilities, gorgeous-looking stages and a lot more.
On top of this, it seems that for the first time ever, Metal Slug will have a hub area where players can walk around and talk with other characters or pick up what seems to be a special item or a power-up.
Unfortunately, the release date has not been revealed so we will have to wait a bit more until Tencent confirm when exactly the game will arrive to iOS and Android.
If you are disappointed that this one is coming exclusively to mobile, you will be happy to hear that there is another Metal Slug game in development for consoles, scheduled to release this year, if everything goes according to plan.
