Daemon X Machina: Prototype Missions is Leaving the eShop

Following February’s Nintendo Direct, Daemon X Machina received a free demo on Switch eShop. This Prototype Missions demo included a tutorial, four missions, mech customization, and even a boss fight! The full version of the game is scheduled to release sometime this Summer, but the demo won’t be sticking around until then, so get it while you can!

According to the Japanese eShop listing for the game, Daemon X Machina‘s demo will be leaving the online store on March 11th. Because the demo is played entirely offline, you should still be able to continue playing it after it leaves the store, but that’s not specified. What is specified is that any progress made in the demo will not transfer over to the full game, so everyone will be starting on an even playing field come launch day.

Sonic Mania Developer Releases Darkwing Duck Demo

Simon Thomley, the sole developer at Headcannon, recently proved his ability to revitalize classic brands with his work on Sonic Mania, the highest-rated entry in the franchise in many years. As it turns out, he had hoped to follow it up by reviving another classic franchise, this time by working with Capcom.

Headcannon was in league with
Darkwing Duck comic writer Aaron Sparrow and comic artist James Silvani, and the group was working to create a new Darkwing Duck game featuring much of the original voice acting cast. The game was planned as a spiritual successor to the NES classic and would have taken place between the show and “The Duck Knight Returns.” Steelbeak, Taurus Bulba, and the Fearsome Five were all planned as villains.

Headcannon developed a demo consisting of the game’s first level and pitched it to Capcom. Unfortunately, they opted not to move forward with the project. However, the demo itself has been released to the public, and you can try it out now for free by clicking the link in the YouTube description above.

Capcom Officially Reveals the Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo

Last month we reported on an Xbox One listing for “Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo.” At the time Capcom gave no official comment, but that changed today. Capcom has just officially confirmed the existence of the 1-Shot Demo, and they also revealed that it’s coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam this Friday, January 11th.

The demo stars Leon Kennedy in the Raccoon City Police Department, which has been overrun by zombies. Players will have just 30 minutes to play as much as they can. You can keep going if you die (or if you complete the objective you’re given), but the timer is always ticking. At the end of the demo, players will get to see an exclusive new trailer. The demo will be available to download from January 11th through the 31st.

Ocarina of Time HD Fan Remake Gets Playable Demo

YouTuber CryZENx has made quite a name for himself over the past few years with his retro game remakes. He’s got a knack for taking iconic moments and locations from classic games and beautifully recreating them in Unreal Engine 4, and his favorite game to tackle is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

After making considerable progress on remaking the game in its entirety, CryZENx has just released a playable demo. This demo build lets you play through the Kokiri forest, including the Great Deku Tree dungeon. The demo includes combat, cutscenes, and even the Gohma boss fight. You can check out footage of this area above, and the demo will also include the Temple of Time.

CryZENx intends to continue development next year, making more of the story playable. Of course, with a project like this, there’s always the possibility of Nintendo stepping in with a cease and desist, but development on this remake has been going steady for a long time now without interruption. Hopefully Nintendo allows that to continue! You can download the demo yourself by clicking through to the YouTube description.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Gets a Demo Tour in the US

Well, it didn’t take Game Freak long to turn us into prophets! A demo tour has just kicked off for Pokémon: Let’s Go in the United States, starting in Los Angeles, and it’s headed to at least seven more cities before the game’s launch.

Singer Jordin Sparks headlined a Los Angeles demo event on September 29th, giving hundreds of fans the chance to go hands-on with the upcoming Switch games while mingling with celebrities. The games are now headed on a tour that will include photo ops, giveaways, and a unique Pokémon Snapchat filter. Attendees who play Pokémon GO will also notice an increased rate of Eevee and Pikachu spawns in their area. The list of demo stops so far includes:

Anthem’s Getting A Demo Before Launch

Mass Effect Andromeda launched to lukewarm reviews last year, but BioWare is hoping to bounce back strong with a new IP. BioWare has been hard at work on Anthem since 2012, and it finally launches next February. If you’re a little hesitant about buying into the hype after Andromeda, we’ve got some good news. You may have a chance to try it out before you buy.

Speaking at PAX West, Executive Producer Mark Darrah and Producer Mike Gamble announced that Anthem is getting a demo on February 1st, 2019. This isn’t meant as a beta or tech demo, but as a legitimate look at a small chunk of the game as it will appear on launch day.

This demo isn’t exactly closed to the public, but it isn’t really open either. Full details haven’t been announced, but BioWare will be limiting the number of participants. Anyone with an EA Access subscription is guaranteed access, and so are those who pre-order the game. There are plans to let people in through other means as well, but BioWare is waiting to give specifics until a later date.

Capcom is Releasing a Demo for Mega Man 11 Next Month

Fans of the Blue Bomber are eagerly awaiting the release of Mega Man 11, the latest in Capcom’s series of side-scrolling shooters that is set to launch on October 2nd. However, according to the folks at TrueAchievements, fans and newcomers alike will have a chance to try out the game for themselves next month.

They have found a listing for a Mega Man 11 Demo Version, which is set to launch on Xbox One on September 4th. The demo will allow fans to “take on all kinds of enemies and traps in the Block Man stage” and “use the new Double Gear system to slow down time or power up your shots and take down that boss.” While there are no details on a demo releasing on the PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch, it’s likely that the demo will launch on all three platforms at around the same time (early September).

Nintendo Hints At An Upcoming Smash Ultimate Demo

Nintendo is gearing up to launch their biggest (and hopefully best) iteration of Super Smash Bros. yet, and they’re bringing back every single playable character in franchise history. Nintendo’s highly anticipated fighting game launches on December 7th, but there’s a chance that Switch owners around the world will get to try it out early.

IGN had the chance to sit down with Bill Trinen, Nintendo of America’s Senior Product Marketing Manager, at San Diego Comic-Con. During the interview, they inquired about the possibility of an online demo for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate along the same lines as ARMS or Splatoon.

“Very good question. Right now they’re focused very much on getting the game ready, but we have a few other things we’ll be talking about kind of down the road between now and when it launches in December, so we’ll hopefully have some news on that as we get closer to launch.”
— Bill Trinen

Trinen stopped short of confirming a demo or Global Testfire event, but his answer seems to indicate that Nintendo does indeed have something in the works. Trinen was also asked about the possibility of DLC, but he largely just reiterated his past comments. Nintendo and the Smash team are focused on development right now, and any future DLC will be up to series creator Masahiro Sakurai.

Impressive Fan Remake of P.T. Has a Playable Demo

Way back in 2014 Kojima Productions released P.T., a playable teaser for an upcoming Silent Hill game. The demo wowed fans and quickly amassed over one million downloads, and Silent Hills became one of the most hotly-anticipated upcoming games around. Unfortunately, a nasty divorce between Kojima and Konami led to the game being cancelled, and the demo was pulled from the online store.

Fans have petitioned Konami and Sony in the past to make the demo available once again, but to no avail. In the absence of an official release for P.T., an ambitious fan has taken it upon himself to remake the demo. Simon Cromwell, AKA Qimsar, is recreating the game using the Unreal Engine, and he’s making real progress. There’s already a playable version available on GameJolt that you can try out for free, and Qimsar intends to keep polishing the game going forward. Even if he gets hit by a DMCA takedown from Konami, Qimsar has pledged that he will look into “personally [uploading] the game to each individual person who wants it.”

Despite only being seventeen with little Unreal experience, Qimsar has done an impressive job so far. You can check out around 15 minutes of footage from his demo by clicking above.

New Kingdom Hearts III Leaks Reveal Wreck-It Ralph, a Fix-It Felix Jr. Minigame, and Much More

Update: Now that the actual footage is out there, we’ve learned that the Fix-It Felix screen is actually showing part of Ralph’s summoning, not a minigame.

Original: For those who don’t know, several YouTubers and gaming news outlets were invited to experience a brand new demo of Kingdom Hearts III at a special premiere event. Attendees are not allowed to reveal any information about the game until tomorrow. However, one brave soul took one for the team. They took off-screen pictures of the demo and were promptly kicked out for it later. Fortunately, since I was not invited to this event, I’ll share all the juicy details we know about the Kingdom Hearts III demo.

Before we dive in, it’s important to know these photos originate from 4chan. While the images are extremely convincing and unlikely to be altered, we still have to take these leaks with a grain of salt.

The first big thing you’ll notice from the leaked photos is the appearance of Wreck-It Ralph. However, this doesn’t mean the character’s world will make an appearance. The demo only includes the Toy Story and Hercules worlds, meaning that Ralph is likely a summon. An exciting feature of the summon is the new “skip sequence” button, which was likely put there because of the negative reception around the first game’s incredibly long summoning animations.

But the Wreck-It Ralph fun doesn’t stop there. The Toy Story world also features a Fix-It Felix Jr. minigame, adding to Kingdom Hearts III‘s retro-inspired Classic Kingdom.

The photos also show the game being played with an Xbox One controller, reminding us that the series will make its Microsoft debut this year. If you want to see more photos from the event, check out the gallery below!

The Kirby Star Allies Demo is Fun, But It Relies Too Heavily On Its Gimmick

Kirby Star Allies is making its way to Nintendo Switch in just under a couple of weeks. The game feels like an extension of Return to Dreamland, which brought the pink puffball back to his roots in a colorful platforming adventure. In this title, players can recruit enemies to help alongside them. Alternatively, Star Allies also supports up to four players in a co-op mode.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, but you’re still on the fence, Nintendo has released a demo for the game. I had chance to play the demo this morning, and it’s very reminiscent of Return to Dreamland. The allies feature is a great addition to the game, and it looks like Nintendo has thought of a ton of new ways to power up Kirby.

However, the game does run at a pretty low framerate, sometimes dropping below 30 FPS when too much is going on. This is incredibly odd for a game as simple as Kirby, when the highly action-packed Bayonetta 2 maintains a constant 60 FPS. Also, the level design feels like it’s made specifically for multiple players. So while recruiting AI characters as partners via the allies feature is really cool, it almost seems like it was put in simply so there could still be a single player mode. 

All of these complaints aside, Star Allies looks like it’s shaping up to be another solid Kirby title. I can’t wait to get my hands on it on March 16th.

Have you guys tried the demo yet? What are your thoughts on it so far? Let us know in the comments below!
