VNG Games Bringing Metal Slug: Awakening to the Philippines

VNG Games has officially announced that it has obtained the publisher rights of the classic arcade video game “Metal Slug” – licensed by SNK and fully supervised and developed by TiMi Studio.

The official name is Metal Slug: Awakening and it will launch simultaneously in 8 regions – Taiwan, Hongkong and Macau, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia.

This mobile version of the game will undergo a comprehensive upgrade in terms of graphic quality, and will also maintain the signature side-scrolling mode while adding multiple brand-new features, including combat gameplay as well as introducing the “Hot Pursuit” mode for the first time.

The “Hot Pursuit” mode is a roguelike element that enables users to obtain three enhancement abilities upon level completion – allowing users to choose their combat style and easily swing away from repetitive modes. 

Metal Slug: Awakening also introduces The Maze, an exclusive power-up challenge that helps users strengthen their damages by obtaining vehicle-strengthening materials to equip them for upcoming challenges.
