Nintendo opened the Nintendo Direct at E3 2018 with a bang, debuting a new mech-based third-person shooter by the name of Daemon X Machina. In the vein of the classic Armored Core series, you’ll pilot a giant robotic suit of armour (known as an 'Arsenal') and take on all manner of giant bosses with rockets and massive swords galore.

Details are very thin on the ground for this one, but we do know it’s coming to Nintendo Switch some time in 2019 and that Marvelous and First Studio are working on it. We also know Ken Awata and Ken Karube will serve as game directors, and that Kenichiro Tsukuda is also involved. Tsukuda served as producer on Armoured Core 2, Armored Core 3 and Silent Line: Armoured Core.
