Daemon X Machina will get competitive multiplayer after launch

Nintendo's big new mech game will receive a substantial update at some point after launch.

Daemon X Machina, which is releasing on September 13 and looks very, uh, anime (and also like it'll be a lot of fun), will have co-op missions at launch for up to four players.

But during one of its Treehouse presentations, Nintendo has revealed that the game will, at some point after launch, receive competitive multiplayer too, allowing mech pilots to face off against each other online.

Thankfully, Nintendo of America was kind enough to tweet out the relevant clip.

Nintendo followed up with three pieces of information about Daemon X Machina that director Kenichiro Tsukuda thinks we might not know, which is also worth a look.

They are:

  • You're freely able to move on the ground and in the air
  • You can steal equipment from opponents and equip it on the spot
  • ...ah, it's the competitive play we just talked about. Well, I guess maybe you didn't know the other two.

Hopefully we'll have competitive multiplayer before the year is out.
