My brother fucking loved nier automata. Wish I could buy him a switch for this. He would be so happy
Don't worry, we switch users most certainly want Action/RPG stuff.
Me Pre-E3: This game looks amazing omg day 1 I can't wait.
Similar to the quick weapon switch mechanic in The Wonderful 101. They need to release a demo.i wish nier automata played a bit more like this.
All of these gifs are given a new light once you consider the unchain mechanic. For those who missed the 2nd treehouse segment, you can get an upgrade that allows you to unchain yourself from a legion thats performing an attack and summon a new one. So during this gif, you could theoretically switch while the armor is doing the rising spin and set up an an aerial finisher with the sword or maybe set up that special screen wide slash where angle the cut.
It's 30. The stream is 60fps, and games like Zelda do show that the capture equipment is capabble of providing the stream with 60fps footage, but everything we've seen of astral chain is 30fps. It's pretty obvious just looking at it in motion but if you want to conform for yourself, pause the video and scrub through frame-by-frame by using the '<' and '>' keys. You will see that the game only updates every second frame.
I wouldn’t necessarily think of Astral Chain as a pure action game like DMC or Bayonetta. It seems to have a much bigger emphasis on exploration and light RPG elements with the explorable city (hub?) and side quests. Looks closer to something like Nier Automata, which isn‘t really surprising.
Exactly. I'm predominantly an X/Pro/2080TI gamer, so my Switch is literally just used for indies on the go because: graphics. That's not to say games on Switch don't/can't look good - Nintendo's games look beautiful. But I don't like playing big games on a little screen, and unfortunately the low resolution of Switch looks awful when blown up to 55" on an OLED. But that's just me. I'm used to 4K these days and it's the same problem I had trying to play on a Wii after being used to 720p on a Xbox 360 for a year, it wasn't pleasant.
Oh Cool! I didn't know that, all the gameplay I've seen has been mostly Combat stuff. So I guess it's Nier Automata with better combat, not DMC with Jojo's Stands.I wouldn’t necessarily think of Astral Chain as a pure action game like DMC or Bayonetta.

If you're interested and have time, I recommend you watch the Treehouse segments on it. Especially part 2 goes into those adventure/RPG aspects a bit more:Oh Cool!

That actually makes me excited again, it occupies a different space than a pure action game while still having the type of combat I like.
Thanks, the game looks fucking awesome
I agree with this, though. It's giving me the exact same vibes Monster Hunter World did - it's just too goddamn busy and noisy and simplifying things a bit would make for a much nicer look. That said, I got used to MHW's art style in a couple of hours so there's really no doubt the same will happen with AC.
Edit : You mean in the trailers ?I love pretty much everything they've shown so far during the two Treehouse segments. As much as I am a sucker for PlatinumGames combat, I wish Nintendo would emphasize the RPG/exploration aspects more in their marketing. I wonder who feasible it'd be for them to release a demo where you get to spend time in a part of the city area...
