imports astral

This week sees PlatinumGames’ Nintendo Switch exclusive flashy action game Astral Chain release worldwide, where players will join a special police force tasked with working together with Legioin mechanical (?) partners to take down enemies from another dimension.


Meanwhile, Azur Lane: Crosswave also debuts on PS4, and joins the flashy action-shooting action in a 3D environment with full 3D models. The game will keep its shmup-based gameplay style, and will have various shipgirls zipping around the open ocean in short bursts of combat.
