Time for some good old fashioned American retribution! (from a Japanese point of view, but let’s not get bogged down in the details, eh?) Devolver Digital revealed today that Metal Wolf Chaos XD is finally coming out on August 6th.
Players who wish to help President Michael Wilson defend the United States of America from rogue Vice President Richard Hawk can preorder this cult classic for US$24.99. An exclusive Lambda mech suit skin will act as a reward for pre-purchases, though we all know that in this particular case, that’s not really necessary.
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 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 with most fans experience of the game through YouTube 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.
