Dark Souls developer From Software didn’t just make extremely hard hack-and-slash games, they also dabbled in some good old-fashioned American patriotism! Cue, Metal Wolf Chaos!
Originally released on the Original Xbox in 2004, exclusively in Japan, Metal Wolf Chaos has been a cult classic title for many owners of the system. Check out the official description below.
The country is in peril as President Michael Wilson defends the nation against a full-scale rebellion led 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 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 with most fans experience of the game through Let’s Play videos and the occasional screenshot.
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.
Metal Wolf Chaos XD will launch on August 6th, 2019, although the really missed out on a great July 4th release.
