Daemon X Machina is getting a sequel and I am here for it

Titanic Scion

All aboard the Titanic Scion

The 2023 Summer of Streams™ kicked off yesterday with a bang (or was it a whimper) with the Sony presentation that highlighted some hotly anticipated games and reminded this writer that Dragon’s Dogma II was actually in development. There were some highlights to the show, but the only stream I’ve been focused on this year is the Marvelous Game Showcase. Marvelous and Xseed Games are one of my favorite developer/publisher combos out there, so when they have new games to announce, I pay attention. And I’m glad I was paying attention to the stream today because Daemon X Machina: Titanic Scion capped off the showcase.

Okay, so it’s one of those terrible pre-rendered teaser trailers that I usually make fun of. But at least this game is happening. And why shouldn’t it? According to Marvelous, Daemon X Machina sold “very well” on Nintendo Switch. While work on a sequel was confirmed back in 2021, the Marvelous Game Showcase was our first sorta-look at the title. A supplementary email that was sent out after the presentation didn’t provide any extra information other than to say more details will be made available at a later date.

If you’ve never heard of Daemon X Machina, the game is a wonderful experimental mech action game with outstanding gameplay bookended by a story you’ll likely forget about the moment you set down the controller. Even if it wasn’t my favorite game of 2019, it was one I came back to often because I could always rely on it for a good time.

Daemon X Machina: Titanic Scion is now in development at Marvelous First Studio.
