Astral Chain Looks Great In New Japan Expo Footage
New footage has been released recently for Astral Chain, the upcoming game developed by Platinum Games releasing exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
The new footage, which has been shown during Japan Expo 2019, shows more of the game’s deep combat, a few quests and much more.
Astral Chain is going to be one of the most interesting games developed by Platinum Games, introducing new gameplay mechanics while keeping the high-speed action gameplay the team is known for.
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!
Astral Chain launches on August 30th in all regions exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
