Platinum bringing Astral Chain exclusively to Switch in August

by Oliver BrandtFebruary 14, 2019

Well then, this was completely out of nowhere.

During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that PlatinumGames would be bringing an all new action game called Astral Chain. In an absolutely bonkers trailer, we see a glimpse of a cybernetic future, magical girl cops that summon crazy monsters, and a frankly bizarre “synergetic action system”.

With character design from manga artist Masakazu Katsura, and the project being overseen by Hideki Kamiya, the director of the well-loved Bayonetta series, it won’t come as any surprise that it looks absolutely incredible. Just take a look for yourself below.

Astral Chain will release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on the 30th of August, 2019.
