The latest blog update for Astral Chain covers the seemingly simple task of how the main playable characters were given expressions. Neither of these twins talks outside of summoning their Legions to assist but they still have a lot to express. Takahira Iwagami is the artist in charge of 3D facial modeling, and covers his unique task of bringing the character’s faces to life. The team decided to forego dialogue for the main character so players could easily impose their own personality on them, but shaping them with expressions to be portrayed through the story was still very important for cinematic cutscenes.
Astral Chain releases for Nintendo Switch on August 30. Check out even more details for the latest blog update here.
