A Japanese exclusive, no longer.
Metal Wolf Chaos XD is now coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC thanks to FromSoftware, Devolver Digital, and General Arcade. You’ll get your hands on it on August 6, and it’ll only cost you $25 or £19.50 via Steam; plus, you’ll get an exclusive mech suit skin on your platform of choice. Originally released in 2004 by From Software, exclusively for the original Xbox and only in Japan, it’s become a bit of a cult hit thanks to its scarcity and that it was region locked only to Japan. Now that FromSoftware, Devolver Digital, and General Arcade have partnered up, they’ve modernised the game, with updates like better visual fidelity, refined controls and gameplay, a new save system, and 4K + 16:9 support for modern displays.
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 mechanised 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’état! 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.
