” In the Astral Chain, the player fights alongside the Legions, ” says Taura. ” I love Pokemon, so maybe the idea of inviting another character to fight together was strongly influenced by my childhood play experiences with my Pokemon .”

In addition to the Pokemon influence, Takura states: ” the game is divided into chapters with their specific objectives, such as the Bayonetta series,” and continues, ” but players also have the freedom to choose from a variety of scattered sub-missions, as NieR: Automata “.
