Metal Slug fans will be delighted to learn that SNK is finally releasing a new title for its beloved franchise.

Developed by Leikir Studio and published by Dotemu, the new game will be a turn-based tactical shooter aptly named Metal Slug Tactics. It’ll see the return of many of the franchise’s fan-favorite characters including Marco, Eri, Fio and Tarma as the four lead the Peregrine Falcon Squad into a whole new battlefield. Game mechanics will include classic weaponry, numerous skill trees to choose from, various perks to help your fight, and an adrenaline system that’ll fuel a super attack. Of course, you’ll also find the ultra-iconic pixelated aesthetic all throughout the game.

Though there’s no official release date yet, Metal Gear Tactics will be available for PC over on Steam.

Elsewhere in gaming, Ubisoft has announced the release date for Rainbow Six Extraction.
