Metal Slug: Awakening, the mobile game that is a 3D reimagining of the classic franchise, has had a “soft launch” in the Philippines.
The game is available to some players in English, indicating a possible global release in the near future. The release in the Philippines and Southeast Asia will be handled by the publisher VNGGames.
Check out the gameplay in the video below.
As you can see, Metal Slug: Awakening is exactly the same game that was released this year in China and can be played directly from Brazil. The only difference is the English translation. This may indicate that Level Infinite (Tencent) wants to bring the game to the West as soon as possible.
Currently, the game cannot be downloaded as the “soft launch” is a closed beta test that was offered to a few players.
What do you think of the game? What do you think of this new initiative by Level Infinite to bring Tencent Games’ games to the West as quickly as possible? Leave a comment.
