A new Astral Chain gameplay video has been shared online, showcasing the game's combat system.
The new video, which has been shared by the Nintendo of America official Twitter profile, showcases an intricate combo that requires coordination between the playable character and the Legion. The combo not only looks intricate but also quite flashy, in true Platinum Games tradition.

A longer Astral Chain overview trailer has been released last month, highlighting not only the combat system but also exploration and investigation.
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, in Astral Chain 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!
Astral Chain launches on August 30th in all regions exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
