In an interesting turn of events, Metal Wold Chaos is being remastered.
You heard that right. Metal Wolf Chaos, the exclusive game for the original Xbox, only released in Japan, is coming to current generation consoles! The remaster, dubbed, Metal Wolf Chaos XD, was announced at the Devolver Digital conference. Here is the teaser trailer.
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.
From Software 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 From Software 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.
