PlatinumGames Intends on Astral Chain Being a Trilogy if Sales are Good

Astral Chain is a brand new IP from Nintendo in collaboration with PlatinumGames that players have been intrigued by since its reveal early in the year. It appears, however, that this won’t be the only title in the series we get if it’s well received. In an interview with IGN Benelux game director Takahisa Taura stated that they had no plans for extra content, but instead that the story is intended to be a trilogy with this title being the first part. This may well mean we see a bit of a cliffhanger in the story or a more open ended approach to allow it to flow into potential sequels, but it will all depend on if it sells well enough for them to continue.

Astral Chain is releasing on August 30 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
