In today's Nintendo Direct we got to see a bit more of Astral Chain, the new synergetic action game from PlatinumGames headed to the Switch on 30th August this year. You can see the latest footage in the video above.

In the game 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.

Additionally, a Collector’s Edition will be available in Europe, containing a 152-page artbook, a Shikishi art board with an illustration by character designer Masakazu Katsura, and a soundtrack CD, all in a high-quality box and sleeve.

It all sounds rather lovely we have to say, let us know if you have your eye on this one with a comment below.
