Mech-infused action title Daemon x Machina arrives on Switch this week, along with Castle Crashers, The Sinking City and more.
Mech pilots wanted
I admittedly don’t know much about Daemon x Machina. That said though, it looks really cool, and is just one out of a bunch of great looking titles posting to the eShop this week.
Another is Castle Crashers Remastered, the Switch edition of the now-classic title boasts four player online and off play. Four player co-op is still something of an oddity, even today. Speaking of “odd”, The Sinking City brings a terrific Cthulhu mythos title to Nintendo’s console this week too.
Those are the headliners, but as usual there’s even more to look over for Switch fans. There are a few decent-sized releases in the undercard too, like LEGO Jurassic World.
Check out the full listing below.
Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
- DAEMON X MACHINA – In this new action game from Kenichiro Tsukuda (Armored Core) and mech designer Shoji Kawamori, your environment is your ally. Collect and use Femto Energy on the field to boost your stats and create powerful mirages, or wield objects like cars and street signs as melee weapons and projectiles. For even more power, upgrade your physical combat abilities and learn new skills through body modification. It’ll also come in handy when you eject from your Arsenal and fight on foot using special weapons and abilities.

- The Sinking City – The Sinking City is an adventure and investigation game set in an open world inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of Horror. The half-submerged city of Oakmont is gripped by supernatural forces. You’re a private investigator, and you have to uncover the truth of what has possessed the city … and the minds of its inhabitants.
