Daemon X Machina

Marvelous has gone live with a new Satelight-made “Order Zero” prologue animation for its Switch exclusive Daemon X Machina. In it, we’re able to get a look at what transpired before the start of the actual game.

Here’s the video:

Those who pre-load Daemon X Machina can receive the Prototype Arsenal and Prototype Plugsuit, which were featured in the Order Zero animation.

Daemon X Machina is now available to pre-load on the Switch in North America and Europe. Interestingly, it seems that those who purchase the game digitally will have access to a few bonus items.

Those are as follows:

The Nintendo UK store has opened pre-orders for the Daemon X Machina Orbital Limited Edition. Additionally, a Fan Pack will be included (which comes with the standard release as well).

The Orbital Limited Edition features a few goodies. Aside from the game, you’ll receive an 18cm-tall Arsenal statue, a 100-page artbook, a steelbook, and a hangar-style box with a compartment in which the Arsenal statue can be displayed. The Fan Pack is a Daemon X Machina Metal Plate.

You can pre-order the Daemon X Machina Orbital Limited Edition + Fan Pack on the Nintendo UK store here.

Marvelous has released a new trailer for their upcoming Switch exclusive Daemon X Machina. The (Japanese) video provides an overview of the story, gameplay, customization, multiplayer and more:

Daemon X Machina will launch on September 13.

Amazon UK has started taking pre-orders for the Daemon X Machina Orbital Limited Edition. For those interested in securing a copy, you can reserve it here.

Note that this will ship to the United States despite the page stating otherwise. You should be able to make it through the checkout process and successfully place an order.

Daemon X Machina producer Kenichiro Tsukuda has spoken about how long the game will take to complete.

Tsukuda believes the story mode could last between 20 and 30 hours. However, those who are looking to collect as much equipment as they can may find themselves going through the experience for 100 hours. Aside from collecting equipment, players can have characters join them to help fight in battle.

Below are Tsukuda’s full words on Daemon X Machina’s length:

Hello my beautiful weapon triangles! Fire Emblem: Three Houses is coming out in three weeks, so we’re celebrating by discussing all about some new details we’ve got on how the game plays and how Koei Tecmo was involved with Nintendo to make this game happen.

We also talk about some interesting comments from Nintendo on 5G, Cloud Gaming, VR, and a new control style they want to create for next-gen that will become the new industry standard. Peculiar stuff! Oni also gushes about Daemon X Machina and laments Bloodstained stumble onto the Switch.

Daemon X Machina’s demo ended up working out very well for the game. Marvelous was able to field feedback from a ton of users who tried it out, resulting in many improvements. You can see what was changed in a recent trailer here.

One aspect not pointed out in the video concerns a technical improvement. According to director Kenichiro Tsukuda, the frame rate has been improved since the demo’s release. We won’t know how the game holds up until we’re closer to release, but it should be smoother than what players experienced previously.
