And you thought politics were already crazy
Devolver Digital has spurred rumors of the possible return of Metal Wolf Chaos, a franchise originally from Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer FromSoftware.
The official Devolver Digital Twitter account tweeted a logo that strikes a clear resemblance to the game’s original image on Friday. Metal Wolf Chaos, released in 2004 on Xbox, is a third-person mech action game developed by FromSoftware, the team behind Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne.
This comes just a day-and-a-half before Devolver Digital’s scheduled E3 press conference on Sunday, June 10.
Regarded as a cult classic, Metal Wolf Chaos centers around a fictional United States president who dons a giant mech suit to battle enemy forces after his vice president performs a coup.
While Metal Wolf Chaos features full english voice acting, it was never officially released in North America. It’s director, Keiichiro Ogawa eventually went on to direct Ninja Blade on the Xbox 360.
This isn’t the first time Devolver Digital has teased an interest in the franchise. As spotted by Game Informer, Devolver Digital tweeted out “Count us in to help Metal Wolf Chaos get out to more gamers if From Software wants some help” over two years ago.
Devolver Digital also directly tweeted at Yasunori Ogura, a marketing and public relations employee at FromSoftware, stating “Give us a shout, we’d love to talk about Metal Wolf Chaos!”
It’s unclear if Devolver Digital is teasing a proper Metal Wolf Chaos sequel, a remake, or a port of the original game. Answers are likely to come during Devolver Digital’s press conference during E3, June 10 at 8 pm PT/11 pm ET.
