Astral Chain Is A Switch-Exclusive Character Action Game By PlatinumGames

Cyber-Cops With Stands: The Game

The Nintendo Direct yesterday revealed a new game being worked on character action game specialists PlatinumGames. The new title, Astral Chain, got a trailer debut.

Astral Chain has you play as a police force, the Neuron, member in a cyberpunk world. You could either be the male or female of the pair of twins. But your character has a Legion, a “living weapon tethered to a human controller.” Essentially, you are a Stand User.

This means that combat will have you controlling two characters at once which should open up a bigger and diverse moveset and skills you can deploy to battle an alien invasion.

You can check some of the action in the trailer below:

Character design is done by Masakazu Katsura (ZETMAN, Video Girl Ai). Takahisa Taura, longtime developer at Platinum and previously a designer on Nier Automata, is now in the director seat for the first time. Hideki Kamiya of Bayonetta fame is also involved as the supervisor.

Best of all, Astral Chain is coming out really soon. It will be out on August 30th, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
