Today, during the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, the house of Mario and Zelda had a surprise announcement for Marvelous Entertainment’s Daemon X Machina.
The game is getting a demo today titled Daemon X Machina: Prototype Missions.
The demo includes four playable missions and allows players to customize their mech named Arsenal.
The missions also include a boss battle, to get a sense of the massive scale of the game.
Interestingly, some players who try out the demo will receive an invite to take part in a survey in order to provide feedback to the developers.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get a release date for Daemon X Machina just yet, but we know that it will release this summer exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it’s a mecha combat title with plenty of Armored Core pedigree (Kenichiro Tsukuda worked as a Producer on the series), character design by No More Heroes artist Yusuke Kozaki, and mecha design by Macross creator Shoji Kawamori.
