Mercenary Kings launched last year to indie acclaim on Steam. A frantic blend of Contra, Metroid, and some RPG elements tossed in via crafting new weapons, Mercenary Kings Reloaded is now coming out on every console and to PC again as well.
From the Release:
The fight for Mandragora Island carries on in this reloaded edition of the frantic 2D action game! The battle against the fearsome forces of CLAW continues but now, two BRAND NEW playable recruits have joined the world’s most skilled team of warriors-for-hire! With robotic helper C-Zar and the Resistance’s most powerful fighter, Frigg, Commander Baron’s troops don’t stand a chance!
In this upgraded edition of Mercenary Kings, players can take the commands of a mecha-armor in a BRAND NEW Steel Soldier Mission! You can craft 20 NEW weapons! The Kings have never been more powerful!
Whether you head into a solo mission or gather your crew, the days of CLAW are numbered!
Details of the update are as follows…
– Two new playable characters
- Frigg is a resistance fighter who has joined the Mercenary Kings to fight the forces of CLAW. No matter which weapon she carries, Frigg can jump faster than any other Kings thanks to her Olympic training!
- C-Zar is a friendly automaton built by the Kings’ communication expert Miss Zero. His state-of-the-art feet thrusters allow him to slow down his falls so he can get a strategic drop on CLAW troops!
