Publisher Xseed Games has announced that Daemon X Machina – previously a Nintendo Switch exclusive – will be released on PC next week.
It’s probably fair to say that Daemon X Machina didn’t quite stick the landing. The game was one of Nintendo’s E3 presentation highlights in 2018, but a lukewarm reception to an early demo took the wind out of its sails and it never quite recovered. More’s the pity, as developer Marvelous actively wanted player feedback and made several improvements to the finished product.
Well, good news for Marvelous. Daemon X Machina has another chance of finding an audience when it’s released on PC via Steam on February 13, 2020.
Produced by Kenichiro Tsukuda, who previously worked on the cult Armoured Core series, Daemon X Machina is a solid, bone-rattling mech-shooter. It features some striking designs from Shoji Kawamori and really looks the part, even on Switch. However, many critics found fault with repetitive mission design and some decidedly quirky controls. Nonetheless, it’s the kind of game people say doesn’t get made any more and is sure to have its fans.
The game is available to buy with a 20% pre-purchase discount and a limited-time 10% discount post-launch. All copies purchased until a month after release will also include some exclusive bonuses including an Arsenal mech, character suits, and a set of five weapons. The PC version also comes with visual upgrades and controller, keyboard and mouse support.
