Gamescom is now well underway and director Takahisa Taura of PlatinumGames has been busy showing off some new exciting gameplay in the upcoming action game Astral Chain, which is headed to the Switch on 30th August.

The video shows the previously unseen File 06, with Mr Taura demonstrating some high-level play against the boss of this chapter. It's quite an experience to see this in action, and we're sure you'll agree.

We recently got hands-on with Astral Chain ourselves, and we had a riot. It's something of a mix of Bayonetta, Wonderful 101 and Metal Gear Rising. If that doesn't get you hot under the collar, then you might not have a pulse.

Let us know if you are pumped for Astral Chain with a comment below.
