Switch mech game Daemon X Machina is coming to PC
With visual upgrades and new customization options
Nintendo Switch mech game Daemon X Machina is coming to PC.
The Xseed-developed action game has players taking to the battlefield in deadly mechanised battle suits known as Arsenals in order to defend the planet from corrupted AI-controlled robots.
The game is directed by Kenichiro Tsukuda, who previously worked on games in the Armored Core series at FromSoftware.
Daemon X Machina will release for PC via Steam on February 13, featuring visual upgrades, customization options, and support for gamepads as well as keyboard and mouse.
The title is currently available for pre-purchase with a 20% discount off its normal price of $59.99, €59.99, and £49.99, ending when the title releases, at which time it will be reduced to a 10% launch week.
All copies purchased during the pre-purchase period or during the first month of the title’s launch will come with exclusive bonuses including an Arsenal mech, Outer suits for their character, and a set of five weapons.
With the exception of “some licensed DLC,” Marvelous says the PC release will include all content updates including new Arsenal gear, cosmetic options, Colossal Immortal battles, and a co-op Exploration Mission mode.
In VGC’s Daemon X Machina review, critic Jon Bailes said of the game: “An original take on the mech shooter that puts agility and style at the forefront and produces a number of exhilarating battles. But some uneven and uninspired mission design creates too much filler in between.”
