Around a year ago From Software made a Tweet noticing the cult status of Metal Wolf Chaos (since it had basically become a kind of meme) which made Indie publisher Devolver Digital take notice. Looks like they're going to release From Software's lost game Worldwide now, if that tease is to believed! I'll be watching Devolver Digital's E3 conference for the announcement now.

For those not in the know, Metal Wolf Chaos is a hilarious action game where you play as the President of the United States on a mission of vengeance...piloting a mech. The voice acting is really something else. The game was only released in Japan on the original Xbox despite being fully voiced into English.

What.
WHAT.

There was a time when, if I could only have gotten hold of a Japanese version of MWC at a reasonable price, I totally would have bought a Japanese Xbox just to play it. Back pre-Dark Souls, when it seemed like I was one of the only people in the world who actually payed attention to the name "From Software." Otogi was my jam, and Metal Wolf Chaos ran on the same engine, and thus featured similar levels of over-the-top destruction.
So yeah. Gimme.
Long goddamn overdue.

Haha, knew you'd be similarly excited. Unbelievable this is happening.

Rumour goes that From really tried hard to find a publisher but were laughed out of the meetings when they showed it and nobody would publish it (guessing these were just the US branches of Japanese third party publishers like Namco, SEGA, Capcom, Konami etc). No idea why not?
