For those who are new to it, Metal Slug: Awakening is the mobile adaptation of the classic run ‘n gun game – Metal Slug. It’s licensed by SNK, fully supervised, and developed by TiMi Studio. First introduced during Tencent’s game conference in 2021, it had its debut in Mainland China this April.

Taking the leap from arcade to mobile platform, Metal Slug: Awakening keeps most of what we loved about the original: the simple yet engaging side-scrolling gameplay, diverse maps & bosses, and of course our favorite heroes like Marco, Tarma, Fio, Eri, including the iconic super vehicles – SV-001, Camel, and the unique weapon systems.

But it’s not just a trip down memory lane, mga ka-gamers! Expect a lot of new features like the huge upgrade from pixelated visuals to 3D graphics, intense combat mode, and the exciting new ‘Hot Pursuit’ and ‘The Maze’. Plus, you can socialize with other players and team up with friends for ‘Joint Operation’ – showing the true spirit of ‘Bayanihan’ in epic battles and exploring the thrilling world-map together.

The Metal Slug: Awakening Soft Launch is set to kick off on June 28. VNGGames also assures that the in-game top-ups during the Soft Launch will be refunded in OB. More updates on this will be shared through the developer’s channel. Stay tuned for the latest updates on Metal Slug: Awakening on the official page at Get ready for some action, mga Commanders!
