Just to be blimmin’ awkward Devolver Digital did announce some games last night, of course most of their presentation was utterly bonkers, but they did announce of few titles and the first is Metal Wolf Chaos XD a “modernized release” of From Software’s mech shooter Metal Wolf Chaos which was only previously release in 2004 as an Xbox exclusive only in Japan.
The game is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year.
The country is in peril as President Michael Wilson defends the nation against a full-scale rebellion lead by Vice-President Richard Hawk and the mechanized legions he commands. As the 47th President of the United States, it is your sworn duty to take your country back by any means necessary and end this unjust coup d’etat! Battle in your advanced mech – armed to the teeth – across iconic American landscapes including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and the front steps of the White House.
FromSoftware originally released Metal Wolf Chaos in December 2004, appearing exclusively on the original Xbox and only in Japan. The game went on to become somewhat of a legend as it was hard to acquire and even harder to play outside of Japan. Devolver Digital and FromSoftware have partnered together with developer General Arcade to modernize Metal Wolf Chaos with updates to the game including upgraded visual fidelity, refined controls and gameplay, a new save system, and 4K + 16:9 support for modern displays.
