Old But Gold – Explore classic stages in World Adventure

Playing the early stages of Metal Slug: Awakening, commanders will be able to revisit iconic stages in World Adventure that closely resembles the arcade version. Not only that, but the game also improves the game controls, enabling commanders to seamlessly experience side-scrolling gameplay just like the old time!


Prime Showdown for the all-new PvP Battle Mode

Entering the Prime Showdown PVP battle mode, the in-game system will automatically balance the damage input, armor and HP of each commander and match them with commanders of similar levels, ensuring fair gameplay for everyone.

Each commander would be able to freely pick 3 characters to team up and compete against opponents, while freely controlling the characters on the battlefield; fighting BOSS for exp as well as grabbing numerous strength-enhancing resources. With the combination of skill and strategy, commanders can easily defeat opponents and BOSS to obtain prestigious badges and become the top player.


Roguelike Gameplay with Hot Pursuit

Other than the PVP mode, for the first time in the series, a new game mode that features roguelike gameplay is called Hot Pursuit. Each Hot Pursuit consists of 10 small levels and with each completion of the Hot Pursuit, it will randomly select three skill enhancements from the total four skills: summon, black hole, barrage & skill, enabling commanders to strengthen their characters before entering the next level.
