Devolver Digital has plans on bringing back Metal Wolf Chaos XD for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The HD remaster was announced during Devolver Digital’s hilariously entertaining and on-point [mock] press conference. The announcement was also accompanied by a new trailer and a hashtag #MechAmericaGreatAgain.
You can check out the tweet and the trailer below.
Announcing Metal Wolf Chaos XD, an updated version of FromSoftware’s legendary 2004 Xbox release previously only available in Japan.

Obviously after seeing it, there were some people who got quite salty about Devolver satirizing President Donald Trump’s catch phrase, and began begrudging Devolver for the decision.

between devolver buying the domain “mech america great again” and fallout letting you shoot nukes at each other, E3 2018 is really about just sticking our heads in the sand, huh

I don’t like “Mech America Great Again” as a tagline mostly because it’s just tired and played out. If anyone actually think it’s in support of it obviously they’ve never seen gameplay of Metal Wolf Chaos before.

As you can see, a collection of SJWs have been impotently raging into the void of Twitter’s endless 255 character yelps to present their displeasure with Devolver Digital making light of a Trump catchphrase.
Funnily enough, Devolver began trending on Twitter and plenty of people are now mocking Social Justice Warriors who attempted to reproach Devolver for making the hashtag.
>Understand how woke outrage mob works and how marketing works
>”Mech America Great Again”
>CUE BANSHEE SCREECHING
>Everyone’s now talking about your game, views and traffic going up exponentially due to lack of self-awareness by the outrage mob not shutting up pic.twitter.com/8hadsEMLBD

If you’re bent out of shape about Devolver making a joke out of a Trump slogan, grow up; It’s not an endorsement, it’s a parody and a damn good one for this game. Deadass don’t see how anyone doesn’t groan and then chuckle at Metal Wolf Chaos promotional #MechAmericaGreatAgain

Getting SJWs riled up and complaining about something in order to get your company trending is a fantastic way to get the word out there. Now a bunch of people who hate weeb games are going to go out and buy a copy of Metal Wolf Chaos XD just to spite the people who get triggered due to their Trump Derangement Syndrome, and Devolver gets to count the dollar bills while licking their lips to the sweet tune of marketing gone right while they trot to the bank while listening to Taco’s “Puttin’ on the Ritz”.
You can look for Metal Wolf Chaos XD to go live later this year for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. For more info feel free to visit the official website.
