Mercenary Kings release date is April 1 on PS4

Tribute Games will release a PS4 version of 2D side-scrolling action RPG Mercenary Kings on April 1.

Supporting up to four player co-op locally or online, Mercenary Kings features gameplay that harks back to classic side-scrolling shooters such as Metal Slug.

Players assume the role of members of an elite squad known as the Mercenary Kings, who are dropped on Mandragora Island to complete a series of missions and rescue Dr. James Neil from the forces of C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalist Active Weapons).

Objectives range from killing certain enemies to rescuing NPCs and gathering resources, which can in turn be used to create powerful weapons.

In a comment posted on the EU PS Blog Tribute Games writer Yannick Belzil said the studio hopes "to get [Mercenary Kings] on Vita eventually".
