Who saw this coming?

Nintendo finally kicked of their E3 2018 Direct and surprisingly, it was a new IP that opened proceedings.

Daemon X Machina is an intersting looking title that will launch at some point in 2019.

When I 1st set eyes on it I genuinely thought it was a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles X, albeit it with a cel shaded aesthetic.

While details are at the moment scarce, I have managed to procure some information regarding this interesting looking title.


A brand-new Nintendo Switch title with the strategy of a mech game at the speed of an action game!

A brand-new, fast-paced mech action game from Kenichiro Tsukuda is coming to the Nintendo Switch system. Take your Arsenal, a fully customizable powered suit, out for an array of missions to surmount the enemy at all costs. Choose and equip your Arsenal with a multitude of weapons, obtain more from downed enemy Arsenals, and swap them on the fly to suit your strategy in the face of ever-changing threats.
