Astral Chain revealed
A new action title from the creators of Bayonetta and NieR: Automata
Nintendo has announced Astral Chain, a new action game from PlatinumGames, directed by Takahisa Taura, known for his work as the game designer on NieR: Automata, and supervised by Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Bayonetta series.
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.
In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations. 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.
Astral Chain is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on August 30, 2019.
