ASTRAL CHAIN is a brand new action game from PlatinumGames, available exclusively for Nintendo Switch. As a member of a special police force, you fight against a mysterious alien invasion. In a multicultural city of the future, the state of disaster has to be declared because suddenly - as if out of nowhere - gates to another dimension appear. Dangerous creatures attack the inhabitants and contaminate the area. The traditional police squadrons are overwhelmed. A special unit called Neuron is founded. You have the choice between two playable characters, a man and a woman. The character you don\'t choose appears in the game as your younger twin brother or twin sister and also works for Neuron. In order to resist the extraterrestrial creatures, mankind developed a humanoid weapon: Legion. Legion accompanies you in your investigations, helps you and fights by your side. In the synergetic collaboration with Legion you develop numerous fighting styles. For example, you can attack the same enemy at the same time or take on different opponents. You can also send Legion on the offensive, keep yourself in the background and support the fight with items. You fight and explore together!
