PlatinumGames' Switch Exclusive "Astral Chain" to Release This August

PlatinumGames and Nintendo's JRPG Astral Chain got a release trailer during the Nintendo Direct E3 presentation this morning. The game will launch on August 30, 2019.

In Astral Chains, players take on the role of a police special forces officer who works together with a humanoid special weapon called Legion. So think JRPG Robocop except you play as Anne Lewis. They'll use whip-like weapons to take down various sci-fi monsters alongside their cybernetic companion.

The description for Astral Chain provided by Nintendo today reads:

 In this new synergetic action game from PlatinumGames, humanity's last chance against an interdimensional invasion is a sentient weapon called the Legion. As a rookie officer in an elite police task force, players will work together with their Legion to solve cases and save humankind. Players can change Legions on the fly to vary their style and unleash stylish combos. As they save the world from extradimensional invaders called chimeras, they'll also interact with citizens, question suspects and team up with members of their task force to solve cases. The game is scheduled to launch Aug. 30.

Astral Chain was announced at the Nintendo Direct presentation back in February.

You can check out the brand new trailer courtesy of GameXplain on YouTube below.
