Astral Chain was one of last year’s most impressive Nintendo Switch releases. When it arrived in August, it managed to grab first and second place in the UK and Japanese gaming charts respectively, and it followed this up in the US by becoming one of the best-selling games of the month. It resulted in PlatinumGames thanking the player base for making the new IP such a success.
If you’re hoping for another entry set in this same universe, the good news is there might actually be a chance of this happening. In an upcoming issue of Famitsu, PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya and the director Takahisa Taura touch on the game’s sales. Taura reveals how, “Thankfully, Astral Chain has sold above expectations” (thanks, Oni_Dino).
Last September, not long after the release of Astral Chain, Taura said he was “unsure” about a sequel, but said he would be very happy to consider it if the game was well received and sold well. In the same interview with BunnyGaming he also mentioned how he had “a lot of ideas” at his disposal if a second game was approved.
