astral chain


Recommended Posts

astral chain is a switch exclusive. 

 

it's an action game. the chap beyond nier automata also worked on it. it's a slightly anime take on cyberpunk, like a neo-tokyo bladerunner-type world. you are fighting off invaders from the astral plane with one you have captured as your own to control. he's on a chain...

 

the combat is pretty cool, with some precise timing required, but also how you use your legion and his chain. you can rebound enemy attacks with it like a wire, and also tie the enemy up with is quite fun.

 

i'm a few hours in to it, and the story seems alright. there are also some detective-type missions where you utilise your legion to look for remnants of particles from the astral plane to find clues and then follow a path. for me, i really like the aesthetic of the game.

 

anyone else playing it?
