It’s amazing how long Mercenary Kings has been in Early Access. July 22, 2013 marked its first arrival on PC, and yet just yesterday a clear release window of the full version was still up in the air. That’s looking to change today as Tribute Games has announced the side-scroller with a ton of charisma and creativity will be hitting the PlayStation 4 in a couple of weeks.
Mercenary Kings features old-school Contra-esque cooperative shooting and a vibrant art style. This is one of the games that makes our job a lot more difficult, not knowing whether it’s right to review an unfinished product, while at the same time they’ve been charging money for it for over half a year now. Regardless, get to saving the world when Mercenary Kings hits the PS4 on April 1.
