Ever wanted to have two to four robots punch each other until some of them explode? Well, now you'll get your chance. Daemon X Machina has added a competitive multiplayer mode to the game and also has more to come.
The competitive multiplayer will allow players to face off and figure out who's the best mech pilot in the world. At the current time, the game will support either a 1v1 or 2v2 mode. Additionally, it doesn't have to be an online fight. You can also participate in local wireless matches between players. With global leaderboards to determine who's the very best, you'll have to fight your way to the top.
However, there's even more content on the way. Nintendo has released a roadmap that gives us a vague idea of what we're getting and when. The first batch of content hits in "early November 2019" with a "collaboration." The game will be getting some special themed content, but what exactly that is or what Daemon X Machina will be collaborating with is still a mystery. In late November new co-op missions will be added to the game, which includes new boss fights as well. There will also be new weapons added to the game as well, giving you ways to take on these bosses. Then even more co-op missions will be added in December, with these missions also having new and unique objects. There will also be more weapons added to December.
The roadmap also notes that there's "more to be confirmed", meaning Nintendo probably is saving some surprises for down the line. It also notes that all content in the roadmap will be available free of charge, so you don't have to worry about paying for these extra weapons and co-op missions.
Daemon X Machina is currently available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
