Metal Slug: Awakening is Launching in the Philippines Soon

Metal Slug: Awakening, the latest iteration of the classic arcade game from SNK, is launching in the Philippines and several other countries in the region soon, including Taiwan, Hongkong and Macau, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.

The new mobile version of the run and gun, platformer game maintains the classic gameplay of the original Metal Slug games but receives a comprehensive upgrade in its visuals, featuring 3D graphics instead of the classic pixel art. It also comes with several new features, such as a new roguelike “Hot Pursuit” mode, the new “The Maze” challenge, as well as new combat features.
