Update: This DLC is now live on the local Switch eShop as well.
The Witcher has become increasingly popular around the world over the past few years. For example, later this month, Netflix is launching a live-action series based on the books. That doesn't mean CD Projekt Red's video game adaptation has been forgotten about, though.
Following on from the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the Switch in October, Geralt and Ciri are now making an appearance in Marvelous Entertainment's mech game, Daemon X Machina. This free DLC pack is already up on the Japanese eShop and comes with Outer Parts to turn your character into either of these monster slayers.
This content is expected to arrive in Europe and North America later today. In the meantime, take a look at each of the designs:
Will you be downloading this free content for Daemon X Machina? Comment below.
Ok, this is really unexpected and cool!
I'm sure I'll try it eventually when I get the game. Love free DLC. That's how you keep interest in your game.
Game is pretty low on my GameFly list. If ever get to it, I'll check it out.
I personally dont care about both games, but strange and unfitting crossovers always catch my eye. I love it
Geralt is already in progress of being the next Shovel Knight it seems when it comes to crossovers. Yeah, it's his third appearance in another game but I'm already calling it now.
What the heck?! This is wild and so weird but I love it!!
Hah, sweet! It’s almost ironic that I likely won’t return to DXM due to being hooked on Witcher 3.
Would be surprised if Geralt isn't our new Smash Bros. DLC character.
It doesn't fit though.. Yeah I know, neither fit Street Fighter in Monster Hunter but still. Isn't supposed to be somehow connected? Maybe? At least? Witcher 3 on Zelda would be a better fit or the new characters from Cyperpunk on Daemon x Machina..
Geralt on Smash confirmed!
This is really cool but it would of been better if they had given them sci fi armour /skins. it looks a little silly.
@cowntsikin would be a dream...
This is fantastic!
I just want to know "why?"
It's among the more unfitting series they could have done a cross over with...Then again, maybe that's the point. Other 'mech' series are few and far between as well as running the risk of any crossover just blending in with the base game and not feeling that special. This though? It's weird and stands out, it feels more unique because of it.
Wow, it's strange how people get excited very easily in here.
I saw the thumbnail and hoped for a shader update to Witcher 3.
This is awesome.
I'm 75 hours into Witcher 3 in my playthrough and I love DxM. The gyro makes it fun as heck to play (so glad they listened to feedback- without gyro I'm not sure how fun it would be- aiming with analog bores me nowadays, and frustrates me).
Just downloaded. Very strange collab as I see little crossover from gamers, aside from people like me who have broad tastes.
Odd choice for a crossover but those designs are really nice. Give me an exclusive Witcher game on Switch with that style.
@nkarafo Spoilers I think, but Ciri was dimension hopping at the end of the books (the last one starts with her meeting a knight of the Round Table). They probably revisited that for the games. Witcher kinda has crossover potential written into it.
its a shame Daemon X Machina is actually a really fun game that nobody will give it a chance
Yay, more pointless illogical crossovers... What's even more nonsensical is that this is the first game. Someone should tell them that crossovers are for when a franchise is old and stale and run out of ideas.
@KBuckley27 I almost didn’t after the demo. Glad I did though, I had a lot of fun with it. I think the biggest issue I had was that there didn’t feel like enough to do in the end game, but that’s also a sign that I was clearly enjoying it.
At this rate we're going to be able to have a smash bros esc crossover game featuring a dozen franchises and be able to have a cast consisting only of Geralt
@abbyhitter He's already in Soulcalibur 6, so Bamco already has the moves.
