Mercenary Kings

Wizorb developer Tribute Games (comprising a lot of people who worked on the Scott Pilgrim game) just revealed its new project, the Metal Slug-esque Mercenary Kings, a run-and-gun side-scroller with animations by Paul Robertson.

Adding depth to the blastin' are a mission system and the ability to craft new weapons from materials taken off of defeated enemies. "The game is currently in an early prototype stage, so a lot might still change," said Tribute co-founder Jonathan Lavigne in a blog post. The trailer gives Mercenary Kings a "2013" release date, which puts a lot of time between us and giant puppy robots.
