This time, every battle in the game will also be energized by the powerful original track of Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, League of Legends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X's Nightmare, and more).
Metal Slug Tactics, in addition to a respectful homage to the eternal classic, is also a new chapter in the franchise that incorporates a unique and creative way to celebrate the fun and bombastic universe of the series.
