80s inspired, four-player shoot’em-up Tango Fiesta explodes onto console.

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 , Manchester, UK. - Merge Games Ltd., a privately-owned video game publisher and distributor, is super-proud to announce the release of Spilt Milk Studios’ 80s-inspired, gun-toting, four-player, arcade-action shooter - Tango Fiesta on PlayStation4 and Xbox One. Priced $9.99, €9.99 and £7.99, Tango Fiesta launches today, Wednesday, May 17, 2017.

The 80s was a time of excess, an era epitomized by the action movies of the time – everything was bigger, faster and louder! Action heroes were larger than life and could take on a small army – single handed! Tango Fiesta lets you relive those Reagan-era delights all over again, but this time it's you in the lead role. So, it’s Sayonara Sylvester and Adios Arnie, there’s a new action hero in town.

Terrorists, aliens, diabolical game show hosts - John Strong has seen the face of every evil imaginable, and put a bullet in every last one of them. He's the world's greatest hero, or would be, if anyone believed him. Discharged from duty and dismissed by the news media, Strong made the only reasonable choice left. He sold his story to Hollywood and became an action star. With access to an armoury of weapons that would make any 80’s action star jealous, Strong has committed himself to upholding justice and delivering freedom with a bang!      

Most-excellent heroes tend to attract some gnarly villains, and the evil Australian beefcake Gordon is by far the gnarliest of them all. To take down Gordon and his thugs Strong can grit up and go mano-a-mano, or he call in some heavy backup with four-player local and online multiplayer. Who said it takes only two to tango?

Take down scores of bad guys, fulfil fearless objectives, flex your bodacious bod and utilize an assortment of awesome weaponry in a procedurally generated world, allowing for endless explosions and excitement.

Are you ready to dance?

Available PlayStation4 and Xbox One, the four-player, co-operative shooter  Tango Fiesta launches today, Wednesday, May 17, 2017.
