Astral Chain Is A Switch Exclusive From Platinum Games

Revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct, Japanese developer Platinum Games known for hit titles such as Bayonetta and NieR Automata revealed their latest game – Astral Chain.

As part of a police special forces unit in a multicultural futuristic city, players work together with a special living weapon, the Legion, in a synergetic action system of battle and exploration. More details about this Nintendo Switch exclusive will be revealed in the future. Astral Chain launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on Aug. 30.

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.

Takahisa Taura and Hideki Kamiya are in charge of this production.
