Metal Wolf Chaos XD Gets a “Behind the Schemes” Look With Devolver Digital and From Software

Metal Wolf Chaos, the (almost) first cult classic video game, finally launches globally 15 years after its original Japan-only release.

In a brand new video from Devolver Digital to celebrate the global release of Metal Wolf Chaos XD, the crew made their way to Tokyo, Japan to pay a visit to the original developers of the Japanese cult classic Metal Wolf Chaos, From Software. They also got hassled by a lift apparently:

The video starts off with a music video to the tune of some cheery J-pop as the devs tour around Tokyo, before we get to the nitty-gritty of things. Such as some fascinating interviews with the From Software team. Like did the now executive director have a crystal ball when coming up with the concept for this game?

As it turns out, the director came up with the concept because he was trying to challenge the notion back then that mech-games don’t sell well in America. Also the guns come from the idea that many Americans own guns. Please watch the entire video, it’s truly fantastic.

Prepare to play as the United States president who is also a mech pilot, as Metal Wolf Chaos XD just launched on August 6th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s also a crazy and fun over-the-top anime trailer for the title, which you can check out here. Also read our review of the game here.

In Metal Wolf Chaos XD, you play as the US President fighting back against a coup d’etat being led by his Vice President. Fortunately for the President, he has access to an advanced mech that he can use to battle against the unjust revolution. Players will fight across places like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and the steps of the White House.
