Devolver’s E3 2018 Press Conference
Last year, Devolver had an unusual press conference. Those of us who tuned in expecting a real conference didn’t know what we were watching for a while.
This time, I was prepared.
It started out with as much insane commentary on the gaming industry as expected, and this time I enjoyed the ride as they parodied the battle royale craze, loot boxes and cryptocurrencies, and more.
They also worked in a few game announcements.
First, they talked about Scum, an open world survival game currently in Early Access.
Next, they showed off My Friend Pedro, a violent game that apparently features a sentient banana, which is coming to both the PC and Switch.
Finally, they revealed the game they teased earlier this week that I was really hoping to see, Metal Wolf Chaos XD. Metal Wolf Chaos was a third-person shooter developed by FromSoftware for the Xbox, but it was never released outside of Japan despite over-the-top American themes. When I first heard about it, I thought it sounded so ridiculously fun I wished I could play it, and now it’s coming to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
They’re using the hashtag #MechAmericaGreatAgain (and URL, probably, although it won’t load for me) because of course they are.
My hopes were fulfilled! I tuned in to Devolver Digital’s conference hoping for a crazy presentation and Metal Wolf Chaos, and I got my wish!
We’ve got a big day of press conferences tomorrow and hopefully many more exciting game announcements.---
