Welcome to Pick Up & Play, our new series of videos dedicated to on the spot gaming sessions that see us diving into any old game and picking up where we left off, be it at the beginning of a new adventure, enduring a tutorial, embarking on a final battle or somewhere in between!
SPOILERS are to expected and we hope you enjoy watching these videos as much as we enjoy making them and in this episode, we’re playing none other than ASTRAL CHAIN:
“Master thrilling synergetic combat against an increasingly powerful alien invasion in ASTRAL CHAIN™, an exciting new action-adventure from PlatinumGames, only on Nintendo Switch. Join an elite task force and work together with a special living weapon to solve cases and save mankind!
THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION – In the near future, Earth has been invaded by otherworldly creatures known as chimeras. Corrupting the world with a mysterious substance called Red Matter, these monsters have forced mankind to take refuge on a multi-cultural city called the Ark.
WELCOME TO THE FORCE! – When the chimeras reach the Ark, the only hope for survival is Neuron, an elite police task force with a very special weapon codenamed Legion. Choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – to join Neuron’s ranks and work with the Legion to stop the invasion once and for all!
DISH OUT SOME JUSTICE! – Fight back against the chimera invasion with your Legion, working as a team to take down two foes simultaneously or by combining your abilities to overwhelm a single opponent. Alternate between multiple Legion types and combat styles to mix up your attacks and pull off all kinds of stylish combos!
TO PROTECT AND SERVE – Hit the streets and work alongside your Legion to help Neuron solve cases and defend the Ark from chimeras. Investigate crime scenes to gather evidence, help troubled citizens by taking on side missions, clean up corrupted landmarks and calm any unrest you encounter in an effort to keep the city safe!””
