Product description

ASTRAL CHAIN, a brand new action game from PlatinumGames, is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch! As part of a police special task force, it's up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world.
- Choose between two playable characters - one male, one female - on your adventure. The character you don't choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron.
- In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations.
- Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies. Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together!

The Ark: A massive, prosperous, multicultural city. But disaster strikes when mysterious dimensional gates appear, bringing dangerous alien creatures to the Ark to attack the people and corrupt the land. The Ark police form a special task force, known as Neuron, to face the alien threat head-on.
Humanity’s last chance against invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie Neuron officer, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind.
ASTRAL CHAIN gives you full control over two characters at once for thrilling Synergetic Action, courtesy of PlatinumGames. Switch between several Legion types and skills to save the world your way.

ASTRAL CHAIN features character designs by the acclaimed mangaka Masakazu Katsura (ZETMAN, Video Girl Ai), and marks the directorial debut of PlatinumGames’ Takahisa Taura (designer of NieR:Automata). Hideki Kamiya, director of Bayonetta and writer/supervisor of Bayonetta 2, provides supervision.
