By Eugene . September 2, 2014 . 2:30pm


SNK’s tower defense mobile game Metal Slug Defense has hit the 10 million mark. To celebrate, all players will get a free new Issenman Tarou character to use. Issenman happens to mean “ten million” in Japanese.



They hit that number in less than three months of the game being available on mobile. The game is also updated with further new units and areas to fight in, including special missions.


Metal Slug Defense is also available now in Italian, Brazilian and Portuguese. This is in addition to English, Japanese and Korean.


The update will hit Android first, with iOS to follow.

    Couldn’t recommend this game enough!

    this is one of the great games on mobile! its F2P mind you, but I complete its main campaign and two other side maps without ever paying a cent. great tower defense concept, great music/sprite/sound effect, no annoying game ads banner, and last but not least was great boss battles.

    this and jungle run have changed the way I see mobile games :)

      do you have to be online to play it?

      • Kensike

        No, so you should really consider trying it! I really did enjoy the game, but multiplayer seems a bit…overpowered, save all your money that you earn for buying characters and wait until you beat the second world, then cosider buying units! The base units I had were able to get me that far, granted with a little difficulty
