The Nintendo Switch in handheld mode is essentially a game controller cut in half with a display wedged in the middle. Hori’s Daemon X Machina Grip controller, launching in September in Japan, is a more literal interpretation of the concept. Update: And now there’s a North American Amazon listing for it.
In Phantom Brigade’s very first encounter, I immediately found myself severely outnumbered — just two mechs against an enemy force of one mech and seven tanks. And yet, I emerged from this mechanised showdown with barely a scratch on either of my big stompy boys. It was over in seconds, but I had all the time in the world to plan.
Also, I could see into the future. That definitely helped a little.
