Here we are at the end of the evening with what might be one of the greatest or scariest press conferences of E3 2018. Devolver Digital firstly fools half of their viewing audience by having their Twitch feed be recasting the stream of someone watching the legitimate Devolver Digital stream. Once over on the official Twitch stream, it made things a lot easier to listen.

The first legitimate title that Devolver Digital showed off was for SCUM. This open-world survival game will boast an emphasis on character creation and customization as you also do everything in your power to survive the world around you. The game will be hitting Steam Early Access in August 2018.

The next announcement from the wicked minds of Devolver Digital is Lootboxcoins, a plastic coin that is now actually available on their website for a price that will change every hour for no reason. As they stated in their conference they’re not sure why people like crypto coins, or how they really work but they are something people will be buying so they might as well sell them.

My Friend Pedro is the next game that Devolver is showing off. This is a sidescrolling twin-stick shooter where the player is allowed to use acrobatics and slow motion to dispatch of a variety of opponents. This title will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.

With so many companies bringing out miniature versions of their previous consoles the Devolver Digital Labs then announced The Devolver Digital Entertainment System Classic, coming with 25 classic Devolver Digital games. With a bit of a hint towards Metal Wolf Chaos Devolver Digital then legitimately revealed that Metal Wolf Chaos will be getting an HD remake called Metal Wolf Chaos XD for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. This game will release later on this year and while having a variety of updates for modern consoles will feature the classic voice acting that it has become so well known for.

As if there weren’t any better way to end the show the host is attacked by someone who lost an arm at the previous Devolver press conference, yes that happened, we can’t really make this up. As the host is repaired and upgraded they tease that the new and upgraded Nina will be unveiled at next years E3 press conference. I guess we’ll have to look forward to that reveal at the next Devolver Digital E3 press conference.

Are you as speechless as we are? Are you excited that President Michael Wilson is finally going to be on a console you can play on? If you want to know more about this and other announcements happening at E3 then be sure to check out our E3 2018 Coverage Hub.

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
