Marvelous announces Daemon x Machina for Switch

'Daemon X Machina' brings stylized mechs to Switch in 2019

Daemon X Machina Announced For Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is the last company to hold a major presentation at E3 this year, and it started off its Nintendo Direct with a trailer for Daemon X Machina.

Daemon X Machina is being developed by Marvelous Games, who are also now publishing Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Nimble, fast and highly destructive mechs, which fly through the air and zoom on the ground, while avoiding enemy projectiles and missiles.

In the game's official product listing, Nintendo reveals that the mech robots in "Daemon X Machina" are called Arsenal.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Does a former Armored Core developer being on the team make you more intrigued about this project or anxious?

The game is produced by Armored Core 2 and 3 producer Kenichiro Tsukada, No More Heroes character designer Yusuke Kozaki, Soulcalibur composer Junichi Nakatsuru, and Ryo Hamamoto from the Tekken series fame. The game's being developed by Marvelous Entertainment.

Kicking Nintendo's E3 press conference off was the announcement of a mech battle title in the style in Gundam and Armoured Core.

What could usually be discarded as lofty PR wording, does sound very realistic this time though, seeing the very promising pedigree of creative talent.

Daemon X Machina seems like a mech game in the vein of Front Mission or Zone of the Enders with high-speed mechs, a lot of missiles, and beam sabers.
