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 Astral Chain game gives you full control over two characters at once for thrilling Synergetic Action, courtesy of PlatinumGames. Alternate between several Legion types and skills to save the world your way.






  • Players can control the protagonist and a special weapon called a Legion simultaneously, building stylish combos by using both characters in tandem


  • There are multiple Legions in the game, each with different combat styles and abilities. Players can even strategically change between Legions at will during real-time battles


  • Use the abilities of the Legion not only in battle but also for investigating cases and solving environmental puzzles



  • Uncover the secrets of the alternate dimension called the Astral Plane, where the mysterious invaders originate



  • Character creator


  • Your life as a police officer (multiple type of quest or sub quests) : investigate, motorcycle chase, clean up trash, etc.


















You think the battle is just a huge boring QTE fest? Let this guy teach you how wrong you're ^_^

That box art ain't quite my jam, but the game otherwise looks amazing. I'll go digital on this one.

They need to move the text. How are they going to sell copies with that there. Smh. Nintendo shooting themselves in their own foot.

If reviews are alright, I'll probably get this eventually but holy shit does that case look terrible. Dumb ass showing, twisted spine pose and the art just seems bad?

NoA: what do we do about the stupid butt shot on the Astral Chain art?

I am so happy for Takahisa Taura. He cut his teeth working with Yoko Taro for Nier: Automata, and now has the chance to make his own game. So far it is shaping up very well.

Not like the boxart, they should keep the original renders without any filter on it.
Hopefully the reverse cover is more pretty.
