Last Chance To Get Nintendo Switch's Free Daemon X Machina Demo

Try out the mech action game while you can.


Nintendo Switch's upcoming mech action game, Dameon X Machina, received a free demo last month following February's big Nintendo Direct presentation, but you won't be able to download it for much longer. Nintendo has confirmed the demo is being pulled from the Eshop on March 10, making this your last opportunity to try it out.

The Protoype Missions demo, as it's dubbed, gives players a chance to test out the game's controls and mech customization options. It features four separate missions followed by a boss battle. Afterward, select players will receive a survey to provide their feedback directly to the development team.

Now Playing: Daemon X Machina - Official Teaser Trailer | Gamescom 2018

If you've yet to, you can grab the Daemon X Machina: Prototype Missions demo either from the Switch Eshop or Nintendo's website. The full game is still slated to release this summer and is directed by Kenichiro Tsukuda, who previously worked on the Armored Core series.

In Daemon X Machina, players pilot high-powered mech suits called Arsenals, which can be outfitted with a variety of different weapons. Players will need to use their Arsenals to take on missions and defend humanity against armies of rouge AI-controlled robots. Nintendo says the game will also support local and online multiplayer.

Daemon X Machina wasn't the only Switch game to receive a free demo following last month's Nintendo Direct; a demo of Yoshi's Crafted World is also available to download from the Eshop. The full game is scheduled to launch on March 29.
