Nintendo Has Gifted Us With This Loaded Astral Chain Trailer

Nintendo Has Gifted Us With This Loaded Astral Chain Trailer

Keen for Nintendo and PlatinumGames’ new super-stylish action game Astral Chain and hungry for details, or quietly hype and looking for a reason to get super hype?

How does almost ten full minutes of gameplay in the form of an informational trailer sound? Yeah, you know it sounds good. It’s worth noting this trailer previously made the rounds in Japan, so if you tracked it down then you won’t see much new, but Nintendo has just blessed its English-speaking fans with a translated version.

The video covers off a ton of juicy gameplay details, mostly in regards to combat and the ‘Legions’, the living weapons tethered to your player character (hence the name Astral Chain). It goes pretty in-depth too, so I guess it the idea of gameplay spoilers is a thing that bothers you, maybe gloss over this one? Otherwise, totally eyeball it right here:

Astral Chain hits the Nintendo Switch this August 30th, and there’s a snazzy Collector’s Edition still available to preorder over at EB Games.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
