Nintendo has released a new story trailer for the upcoming action RPG, Astral Chain.

View it below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Master multiple combat styles in this synergetic action game!

Humanity’s last chance against an interdimensional invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie officer in the elite police task force Neuron, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind.

The Astral Chain game gives you full control over two characters at once for thrilling Synergetic Action, courtesy of PlatinumGames. Alternate between several Legion types and skills to save the world your way.

Astral Chain features character designs by the acclaimed manga artist Masakazu Katsura (ZETMANVideo Girl Ai), and marks the directorial debut of PlatinumGames’ Takahisa Taura (designer of NieR: Automata). Hideki Kamiya, director of the Bayonetta game and writer/supervisor of the Bayonetta 2 game, provides supervision.

Key Features:

  • Players can control the protagonist and a special weapon called a Legion simultaneously, building stylish combos by using both characters in tandem
  • There are multiple Legions in the game, each with different combat styles and abilities. Players can even strategically change between Legions at will during real-time battles
  • This apocalyptic setting is full of intricate details and interesting characters, including citizens and suspects you can interact with in the city, others in the special police task force, and your twin sibling
  • Use the abilities of the Legion not only in battle but also for investigating cases and solving environmental puzzles
  • Uncover the secrets of the alternate dimension called the Astral Plane, where the mysterious invaders originate
  • Astral Chain is directed by Takahisa Taura, known for his work as the game designer on NieR: Automata, and supervised by Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Bayonetta series

Astral Chain is available now for the Nintendo Switch.

The story is surprisingly dark for a Platinum title.

Have you not played Madworld, Bayonetta or (from what I've heard) Nier? I mean I'd rank it as darker than Wonderful 101 and Infinite Space at least. Even Babylon's Fall looks darker.

Bayonetta wasn't dark and I'd still place Madworld below this. I can't comment on Nier, but this was a Yoko Taro game, so I don't think it should count.
