Nintendo has released a nine-minute trailer for Astral Chain, breaking down everything that you need to know about the PlatinumGames-developed action game.
Whether that be a story overview, the different attacks that you will come to rely on in battle, or the different Legion that you can command, it will help you get up to speed before launch.
When gates to another dimension suddenly appear in the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, dangerous creatures start to emerge that attack the people and pollute the land.
With normal police forces unable to compete with them, a brand new, special police task force known as Neuron is formed.
You can choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – on your adventure, with whichever character you don’t choose appearing as your younger twin and fellow Neuron member.
In order to fight back against these creatures, humanity developed a special weapon called the Legion. It acts as your partner and helps with your investigations, however, in battle, it shows its real ability.
Working together with Legion you can use different combat styles to fight your enemies. That could see you both attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send Legion on the offensive while you support it with items.
Astral Chain will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on August 30th.
