Trust Platinum to almost totally steal the show at the Nintendo Direct - even with heavyweights like Super Mario Maker 2 and a Link's Awakening remake, its action-brawler-thingy Astral Chain certainly did not go ignored.
Looking anime as hell and like pure Platinum fun, Astral Chain has you playing as police officers in the future who battle bad guys through the use of "living special weapons" called The Legion, which are literally chained to your body.
The action looks super slick, the world looks absolutely gorgeous, and we can't wait to see more. Plus, it's due out this year - August 30th to be exact. And it's a Switch exclusive!
We'll keep you posted with more info as it comes. For now, just look at the teaser video below and weep with joy.
