Astral Chain from Platinum Games E3 trailer shows a fight against the invading Chimera

Another look at Astral Chain from Platinum Games was provided today during Nintendo's E3 presentation.

Astral Chain, the new action game from Platinum Games, was shown off during the Nintendo E3 Direct.

Announced in February, the Switch exclusive was directed by Nier: Automata’s Takahisa Taura, and supervised by Bayonetta’s Hideki Kamiya.

In the game you are part of a police special forces unit in a "multicultural, near-future cyberpunk metropolis." You and others will  work together with a special living weapon called the Legion.

It releases on August 30.
