Astral Chain - full story/gameplay synopsis

PlatinumGames have added an official page for Astral Chain on their website, and it includes a synopsis of the game itself. Check out the full details below.

The Ark: A massive, prosperous, multicultural city. But disaster strikes when mysterious dimensional gates appear, bringing dangerous alien creatures to the Ark to attack the people and corrupt the land. The Ark police form a special task force, known as Neuron, to face the alien threat head-on.

Humanity’s last chance against invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie Neuron officer, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind.

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

ASTRAL CHAIN features character designs by the acclaimed mangaka Masakazu Katsura (ZETMAN, Video Girl Ai), and marks the directorial debut of PlatinumGames’ Takahisa Taura (designer of NieR:Automata). Hideki Kamiya, director of Bayonetta and writer/supervisor of Bayonetta 2, provides supervision.

Work together with the Legion – the ultimate living weapon!

Humanity’s last hope against the extradimensional invasion is the Legion – a living weapon, tethered to a human controller. You and your Legion will work together to fight off alien monsters – and crack police cases, while you’re at it. Synergetic Action is all in a day’s work at Neuron!

Team up with your Legion for coordinated attacks on one enemy…

… or take on multiple foes at once!

So far, so good....Just wonder how the gameplay will be. Would be nice with more footage.

There goes my hope for multiplayer co-op.

I had seen the full details and my interests are way past peaked. When E3 arrives, I really want to try out the demo from the eShop. ASTRAL CHAIN is a definite must buy!
