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. ASTRAL CHAIN features character designs by the acclaimed manga artist Masakazu Katsura (ZETMAN, Video Girl Ai), and marks the directorial debut of PlatinumGames’ Takahisa Taura (designer of NieR:Automata). Hideki Kamiya, director of the Bayonetta game and writer/supervisor of the Bayonetta 2 game, provides supervision.
From the manufacturer
In the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear! Dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them. To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed. Choose between two playable characters – one male, one female – on your adventure. The character you don’t choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron. As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world. In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion. The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations. However, it’s in battle where the Legion shows its real ability. Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies. You could both attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send your Legion on the offensive while you support it with items. Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together! Making his directorial debut and known for his work as the game designer on NieR:Automata, Takahisa Taura is responsible for the concept and planning of ASTRAL CHAIN. Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Bayonetta series, is in charge of supervision. The character design is by manga artist Masakazu Katsura, creator of ZETMAN and Video Girl Ai.

The world is interesting, I think the graphic style is superb, the controls are responsive and it's a game with more depth than you imagine and you can "Get good" and fully use the game elements.
For a beat'em up game, has a lot of exploration and side mission that you can do.
You also have skills trees to upgrade your Legion/Pokemon, you can select they skills & abilities to customize to your play style and even upgrade your weapons.
The game is everything that I was looking for and has surpass my expectations. For me is one of the must have switch games
I'd give it a 4.5 if I could, it is not perfect, there are a few minor issues but otherwise I have no regrets spending 20 hours on this and look forward to spending another 10 or 20 to completing off the side stuff and things I missed.
From the get-go it feels so fast and fluid, starts off with an absolute banger of a mission and I was hooked straight away.
Definitely a must-buy for and Switch owner
