Astral Chain is undoubtedly one of the most experimental action games of Platinum Games, although it seems that internally there are plans to continue the franchise if it receives good reception. Takahisa Taura, director of the game, talks about it in an interview with IGN (Via Siliconera), revealing that it could be expanded to form a trilogy.
As the creator explains, Platinum Games does not currently have plans to publish Astral Chain DLC (something that does not surprise us seeing the history of the company) but the possibility of extending the franchise is contemplated with up to two more deliveries as long as ” sell well ” From a narrative point of view, the only Astral Chain announced would be considered the first episode of the trilogy.
Taura does not explain how many units Astral Chain should sell to fulfill the expansive vision of those responsible, so we will have to wait to see their results and judge on our own. The game will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch from August 30, and will have a collector’s edition.
