I’ll be honest, I have no idea what was going on in the announcement trailer for Astral Chain, but then PlatinumGames titles often have a touch of insanity to them. With Nier: Automata designer Takeshi Taura directing this game, and Platinum’s general reputation, there’s a lot to be excited about for fans of the company. It’s set to release on 30th August this year.
You’re a cop in a futuristic anime world, battling against alien threats using their humanoid special weapon, Legion. The game is built around, get this, “a synergetic action system of battle and exploration.” I’m glad that got cleared up!
