Marvelous has announced that it will be releasing a Version 1.4.0 update for Daemon X Machina to celebrate the game's first anniversary.
The game will turn one year old this weekend, but we'll have to wait until November before the update arrives. Details of the content set to be added have been shared on the game's official website, with the following translations being provided by Gematsu:
- “Grossfeiern” Arsenal skin
- “Grandemon” Outer suit
- “Eclipse RT: Omega Destruction Strategy” Order – Battle against the strengthened Colossal Immortal “Eclipse Q.”
- Three Arsenal decals
- Three Preview backgrounds
Some new screens have also been shared, just to tease us a little more while we wait for the update's release.
Did you pick up Daemon X Machina? Would you be happy to jump back in when the new update drops? Let us know in the comments.

Not the huge update I was expecting, but at least is something. Great incentive to come back to the game tho.
Oh yeah, that game exists...
I enjoyed DxM, closest thing to a Robotech game in quite awhile.
Thought it was solid. Story was told in an interesting way IMO. Gameplay could be a little disorienting, but that's fairly typical of any game that gives full 3 dimensional control.
A nice little update. Almost done with the campaign myself, pretty good action title overall.
Got this game for half the price, but haven't had any time to play it more than a couple of missions, but it's quite fun actually.
A fun and enjoyable game that would have benefit a LOT by removing all the story and cutscenes and focus on arcade action missions. I hate that every game nowadays thinks that a Story is mandatory. Even if they have nothing interesting to tell.
I'll have to check it out. I picked up 2 copies of this game a few months ago when it was on sale. Only played mabey an hour or so just to try it out and I enjoyed what I did play of it. I'm waiting to play the campaign in co-op one of these days.
This game any good? Been looking at it a few times but decided not to as I didn't know if I would enjoy the gameplay, saying that I did enjoy zone of enders, is gameplay similar
I've had this game for quite a while but never really took the time to play it on a serious level. I think I'm still in the first or second chapter of missions. Just had too many other games that held my interest more. I have been meaning to get into it...
It's not perfect but I think it's an excellent game if you like mechas, Zone of the Enders or Armored Core. I will be back to it when the update hits for sure.
Very good game. Unfortunately it came out at a busy time of the year and mech games are inherently niche. Looking forward to playing it again.
I grabbed this back during a wee bit of a sale on the Eshop. I have really enjoyed my time with it, the skins look cool but I also really enjoy my witcher skin. This has reminded me that I need to get back into it and get the story played through
@HobbitGamer that’s exactly what we deserve!! The original masterpiece.
Best thing about this game are the JoyCons we got because of it...
Its a good game but unfortunately unfinished.
I only found out yesterday from a Scott The Woz video that this game actually game out
It looks like a noir comic Xenoblade, so I might get it
It was nothing mind-blowing, but a solid action title with lots of content (similar to how I feel about most Warriors titles, actually), especially if you like mechs.
It just got the short end of the stick. While the Prototype Missions release was a way for them to get player feedback (which they really took to heart going by the finished release), too many people wrote it off as a bad demo, and then on top of that they smooshed it in between Astral Chain, DQXI, & Link's Awakening remake.
Wow, glad to see this isn’t completely off the radar. I was a big supporter of it, but gotta admit some things were lacking, especially with the environments and story... and let us have some tank legs please... Otherwise a really solid title. Maybe the fact that this genre is completely abandoned means we might see a sequel.
@RR529 I was pretty excited by the game but played the demo and didn't click with me. Really struggled to see what was going on due to the colour pallete of the game. Was this ever changed at all to make things a bit clearer?
I forgot this game even got released
@mariomaster96 classic "I dont play this game therefore it doesn't exist" comment
@Doofenshmirtz joke's on you cause i played the game
but I just didn't find it memorable and therefore even forgot that it existed
I just started playing this, and have been enjoying it for the most part. It is pretty slow going at first. It is still pretty easy at the moment. Hoping the mission difficulty ramps up soon.
I feel bad for this game. It was great, but a little bland. It didn't help Astral Chain came out the month before, I felt like this game turned into a footnote of 2019.
@playstation_king The gameplay and combat is well thought-out, but I think one big issue is that you can get through the campaign without knowing the intricacies of the mechanics, so your playthrough may not be as fun as it should be. PvP forces you to engage more with the game's mechanics, so the PC version might be best of you want a more active community.
@WillQuan I had the same experience with the demo. It never clicked. I had bought a voucher expecting to use it on this, tried the demo and was disappointed and never bought it. Then about 2 months ago I still had vouchers left over I had to spend, I tried the demo again, and somehow this time I got hooked. I ended up spending my "spare" voucher on the game I originally intended to use it on and don't regret it, I've been having a ton of fun with it! I'm not sure what made the difference. I think just expectations. I saw mechs and assumed heavy lumbering ground based mechs. Instead you spend most of the game in mid-air free flight. But knowing that and coming back to it, it's actually really good.
Just imagine if this game was delayed, polished up a bit more and released in the 2020 drought...
@TheDavyStar Wait, this doesn't have cross play with PC? That would be disappointing.
@TheDavyStar The latter part of the campaign, IMO, still forces you to delve into the mechanics. If you're not using your femto powers well and really customizing your loadout for what you're up against, it's a pretty rough go. Especially the 1v1 missions at the Black Lotuses. The meteor shower mission is kind of a turning point in the difficulty curve where you have to really think about your loadout and powers afterward.
The only one I thought was kind of funny was the Lotus fight against Nemesis. My arsenal was destroyed, and I was just roaming as an Outer picking at her from afar. Her and Savior were going at it, and they were just completely ignoring me. I eventually won, after spending half the battle hiding under the overpass and picking at her a few shots at a time when they went by, almost getting stomped on only once.
Sure it's cheating by abusing a dumb AI in a game by and large about AIs...... but it was hysterical that it actually worked!
@Ratking No. 30 fps on Switch. It's available on PC if you want 60 though.
This game killed itself
I am waiting for a discount, they sometimes combine it with the update announcement.
Now this MF just needs to go on sale. I wanted to pick this up but it really needs a discount.
