E3 2018: First Look At Nintendo's Daemon x Machina


Shown during the publisher's E3 2018 press conference, the game offers a wide variety of mechs to choose from and an even wider array of different weapons for them to equip.

Nintendo's E3 Direct Broadcast today, had a second game announcement with Daemon X Machina.

In the game's official product listing, Nintendo reveals that the mech robots in "Daemon X Machina" are called Arsenal. The little snippets reminded us partly of the Armored Core series, only on steroids.

He also worked on the Armored Core series. Additionally, the character designs were created by Yusuke Koozaki, who's credited with work on the Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates games. Soulcalibur composer Junichi Nakatsuru is doing the music alongside Rio Hamamoto from Tekken.

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.
