Even when I’m staring at my calendar, waiting for Fire Emblem: Three Houses to drop later this month, there’s something else on the way that’s got my eye. Astral Chain, the latest action title from PlatinumGames, will be at our greedy fingertips at the end of August, and while there’ve been plenty of updates and info on the game courtesy of its developers, we haven’t gotten to see much outside of official trailers.


Today though, GameXplain has uploaded a hands-on session with the game, offering five minutes of direct feed footage of Astral Chain in action. For anyone who’s been curious about the structure of the game or how its combat looks in an unscripted setting, you won’t want to miss this.

If you like what you see, look forward to more coverage of Astral Chain leading into its August 30th release. You can pre-order your copy on Amazon today.
