Devolver Digital announced plans at E3 to bring back Metal Wolf Chaos XD to PC as well as Xbox and PlayStation 4. The remaster was announced during their “mock” press conference which was full of laughs. It all ended with a new trailer and hashtag #MechAmericaGreatAgain.

Fan reaction was fun and full of awesome gifs and memes. Here are a few of them:


Unfortunately not everyone was excited about the release. Some people found offense with the new hashtag. Any mention of anything related to the current President of the United States is met with mountains and mountains of rage with a pinch of salt.

Twitter user @Altronage was even kind enough to post a screen cap of more of the outrage. In fact, he captured one user saying fans who love fascism will love the game.

Other fans caught on to the fact that the hashtag was a joke and couldn’t understand why people were so outraged by it. It seems some people just don’t get basic parody or satire. Let’s hope they don’t watch any Mel Brooks movies!


Even better with all their outrage they gave Devolver what they wanted. Free press and free air time to spread the news about their remaster. User Oliver Campbell illustrates this point with a perfect meme:


Now combine this with people mocking those outraged by #MechAmericaGreatAgain and you get a trending hashtag on Twitter where Devolver Digital exposes their game to thousands of more people. It’s ace marketing if you ask me.

There are only a few things that are certain in life. Han shot first, the sun rises in the east, and SJW’s will rage over just about anything related to Trump even if its a freaking parody.

What do you think of all of this? Are you surprised? And will you be picking up Metal Wolf Chaos XD? If so which console? Tell me in the comments below!

Metal Wolf Chaos XD will be released later this year.
