Metal Slug meets Borderlands?! Yes please!
I was excited for the Metal Slug tribute game, Mercenary Kings, when I first heard about it getting Kickstarted over a year ago, but then it kinda fell off my radar until now.
I knew that the game was inspired by Metal Slug, the old SNK side scroller that I used to love as a kid, but I didn’t know it was going to have a deep weapon customization aspect too. How cool is that? Plus, not only does Mercenary Kings sport beautiful hand-drawn sprites, but it’s violent as hell too. I love 2D blood and gore, especially when it looks as comical as it does here. Holy balls. I can’t fucking wait to play this!
You can pick up Mercenary Kings on Steam right now or do what I’m gonna do and wait for it to hit PS4 sometime this winter. Check out the trailer below to see what all the hype is about.
