Astral Chain Is A New Switch Action Game From Platinum Games


During today’s Nintendo Direct, Bayonetta, Nier Automata, and Vanquish developer Platinum Games debuted its latest Switch game: a mecha-powered cyberpunk action game called Astral Chain.

The trailer depicts stylish anime police battling monsters alongside mecha partners and pulling up what seem to be predictive holographic interfaces to see what’ll happen to people and environments around them. Nier Automata designer Takahisa Taura is directing, and Bayonetta and original Devil May Cry director Hideki Kamiya is supervising. It looks cool as hell.

“In a multi-cultural futuristic city, players work together with a humanoid special weapon, Legion, in a synergetic action system of battle and exploration,” reads the game’s YouTube trailer description.

Not much else is known, but it’ll be out on August 30.
