Before Dark Souls, before Chromehounds, there was Metal Wolf Chaos. One of the most sought-after and patriotic games of all time, Metal Wolf Chaos is a chaotic third-person shooter that shot to Internet fame on premise alone. In 2018 it was announced by Devolver Digital that they were bringing the game to the west

Here's how Devolver Digital, who are bringing it to the west put it:

The country is in peril as President Michael Wilson defends the nation against a full-scale rebellion led by Vice-President Richard Hawk and the mechanized legions he commands. As the 47th President of the United States, it is your sworn duty to take your country back by any means necessary and end this unjust coup d'etat! Battle in your advanced mech - armed to the teeth - across iconic American landscapes including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and the front steps of the White House.

FromSoftware originally released Metal Wolf Chaos in December 2004, appearing exclusively on the original Xbox and only in Japan. The game went on to become somewhat of a legend as it was hard to acquire and even harder to play outside of Japan with most fans experience of the game through YouTube videos and the occasional screenshot.
