Nintendo has recently dropped Astral Chain, a brand-new high-octane cyberpunk action game that will live as an exclusive title for Nintendo Switch. The game is available for purchase right now via the Nintendo eShop or wherever fine games are sold.
If you like slash-’em and shoot-’em gameplay and hyper-stylized anime worldbuilding, you should give this game a try. The premise is simple: you are a police officer tethered to a powerful mecha, and together you solve cases and vanquish crimes in futuristic Japan.
Here’s the full synopsis:
Humanity’s last chance against an interdimensional invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie officer in the elite police task force Neuron, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind.
The game is developed by Platinum Games, whose portfolio includes the Bayonetta games and heaps more. In short, they at least have a clue of what they’re doing. What’s more, critics seem to be liking the game already, so there’s that.
