From the ashes of Scalebound come future-cops in battle-shorts!

Platinum has revealed their next Nintendo exclusive title. Astral Chains, a futuristic character action game, is headed to Nintendo Switch on August 30th. Hideki Kamiya (Bayonetta) is serving as supervisor and Takahisa Taura (NieR: Automata) is acting as director. In Astral Chains, you take control of a special forces police officer who teams up with a weapon called Legion. The tag-team gameplay system will factor into both battle and exploration.

Platinum games is of course famous among Nintendo fans for recent titles such as Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, and Star Fox Zero. They are also currently developing Bayonetta 3 exclusively for the Switch

This game looks really good... But I'm still hoping for Wonderful 101

Looks good. I may wait on Astral Chain because I expect it to drop in price pretty quickly. This would be an insta-buy had it been co-op.

It isn't co-op?

It sounded co-op to me. I'm hoping my wife enjoys it and we play it together

They were a little vague on the gameplay details. I'm sure we'll get more info in a future Direct.  But I'm hoping it's online co-op.

There were a few parts in the trailer where one of the characters was walking around the city alone. It didn’t look co-op to me.

The time of UNLIMITED ANIME continues. I'm so in with being a Persona/JoJo-neo-cyber-modern-fantasy super cop. Hopefully the story won't force you in to being a bastard.
