Developer Tribute Games, featuring people who worked on the amazing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game and Wizorb, are going to be releasing Mercenary Kings on PS4 later this year.
Reminiscent of the Metal Slug and Contra titles, Kings is a frantic 2D shooter with a deep weapon and item crafting system. Instead of just switching between your SMG and your shotgun, you can enhance your weapons magazine capacity and power as well as craft elemental melee weapons with the ability to freeze your enemies.
Co-op will be included so you can shoot down your enemies with a buddy, and PS4 and Vita connectivity is being looked into for further multiplayer options. With over 100 missions, an in-depth weapons customisation feature and an appealing retro style, Mercenary Kings is set to revisit what we love about 2D shooters.
Set to release this Winter, will you be trenching down with your friends in the over the top Mercenary Kings? Let us know in the usual place below.
