Can you pre-order Metal Slug Tactics?

After initially being revealed during the Summer Game Fest as a grid-based tactical role-playing game with “roguelike elements,” the release date of publisher Dotemu's Metal Slug Tactics has remained a hot topic by fans old and new of the beloved arcade shooter franchise.

Here's the latest for players anxiously awaiting the opportunity to pre-order Metal Slug Tactics.

Can You Pre-Order Metal Slug Tactics?

As it stands at the time of writing, it appears that it's still too early for Metal Slug fans to pre-order the newest installment of the series.

While Metal Slug Tactics is set to ultimately release for PC via Steam, there isn't much those already on the platform can do outside of adding it to their wishlists.

Here is Dotemu's synopsis on what the Metal Slug series' first tactical RPG will have in store for fans:

"Metal Slug Tactics reunites Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma as they lead the Peregrine Falcon Squad into a new battlefield through dynamic, strategic combat. Players wield classic Metal Slug weaponry, leveraging skill trees, perks, and a super attack-fueling adrenaline system to outwit and demolish flanks of the series’ signature villains."

"Metal Slug Tactics’ challenging missions build levels from different combinations of hand-crafted terrain tiles, keeping battle layouts unpredictable and ensuring clashes are won through calculated strategy rather than memorization. Roguelite elements make missions highly replayable and victories feel truly earned, but should a cunning squad or fiendish boss persevere, rounds are quick to jump back into."
