High-flying, mech combat game Daemon X Machina already has post-launch content planned.
Director Kenichiro Tsukuda of Marvelous! confirmed on Nintendo Treehouse that Daemon X Machina will have a competitive multiplayer mode added to the game after it launches on September 13th. This is in addition to the games already announced features, such as their four player co-op mode complete with their own co-op missions along with the games primary story mode.
Daemon X Machina got an extensive deep dive on Nintendo Treehouse during E3 after a new trailer featured the game in the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct. The Treehouse demo would showcase two brand new missions, along with the Arsenal garage and some of the customization options players can utilize. Some of the features shown also include the use of custom-created characters in the main hub world, before equipping and gearing up their own Arsenal. One big change was the addition of optional motion controls, a feature sorely lacking in the games previous demo.
No specific timetable for when the competitive multiplayer is coming was given and Tsukuda also hinted that other updates and additions to Daemon X Machina are also planned for the future as well.
Daemon X Machina will have players fly giant mechs called Arsenals to combat against a horde of A.I controlled robots threatening to destroy the world. The player can customize their Arsenals abilities and appearances with a multitude of weapons and gear, and can even swap out pieces of the fly from downed enemy Arsenals as they see fit to change their own tactics against the machines allowing some flexibility for player builds and adaptability to take down tougher enemy bosses.
Daemon X Machina will be released on September 13th, 2019 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive.
