GameXplain have recently had the chance to play a demo of Astral Chain and it certainly looks incredible.
The game is developed by action-masters Platinum Games and will hopefully be another solid title in their catalogue.
About Astral Chain
ASTRAL CHAIN™, a brand new action game from PlatinumGames, is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch! As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world.
In the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear! Dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them. To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed.
Choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – on your adventure. The character you don’t choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron.
In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations. However, it’s in battle where the Legion shows its real ability…
Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies. You could both attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send your Legion on the offensive while you support it with items. Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together!
There are multiple Legions in the game, each with different combat styles and abilities. Players can strategically change between Legions at will during real-time battles. Use the abilities of the Legion not only in battle but also for investigating cases and solving environmental puzzles.
Uncover the secrets of the alternate dimension called the Astral Plane, where the mysterious invaders originate.
Astral Chain launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, 30th August.
