The publisher announced on Twitter Thursday morning that Metal Slug Tactics would not be released this year. Instead, the strategy game will be released sometime in 2023 in order to make it as explosive as possible.
Metal Slug Tactics, a cartoony sidecroller game originally developed during last years Summer Games Fest, introduces players to the XCOM-like world of strategy games for the first time. The game will feature roguelike elements, although it's unclear how.
After Nintendo canceled the planned release date for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp this spring, tactics fans saw a lot of delays in 2022.
