One of the more mysterious games shown off for Switch this E3 is Daemon X Machina. It kicked off the Nintendo Direct and left everyone wondering what we just watched. We’re eager to find out more information on the project as it looks like it could really be something special!
US Gamer caught up with the developers at Marvelous to find out more about the upcoming 2019 Switch game:
An Armored Core sequel has been rumored for ages, but has failed to appear, so a breakaway group headed by former AC developer Kenichiro Tsukuda is stepping into the fray. His vision can basically be summarized as “Armored Core with destructible environments,” and while it doesn’t have quite the same amount of crazy customization as FromSoftware’s games, you can still carry a host of weapons, from laser swords to bazookas. You can also unlock new mechs, pick armor, and customize for durability, mobility, and more.
Tsukuda intends for Daemon X Machina to be a full packaged game—not an eShop game—and is working on the Unreal Engine. Asked what kind of multiplayer options it will have, he said, “We’re thinking about ways for everyone to play together, but we’ll introduce exactly how we plan to do that at another time.”
