Astral Chain Post-Launch Celebrated With New Artwork From PlatinumGames

Even more artwork celebrating the successful launch of PlatinumGames' latest IP Astral Chain posted to the studio's official Twitter.

It seems that Astral Chain‘s post-launch artwork from both the NieR:Automata and Bayonetta’s character designers wasn’t enough for fans. The official PlatinumGames Twitter account released some new art from main PlatinumGames artist Hajime Kimura, celebrating the title’s success:

It’s so heartwarming to see the hardworking staff at the studio express their gratitude for all the support, especially in fun and creative ways like this. If you need a full sized version of this great piece (of course you do, why not?) here it is in all its glory:

Recently Astral Chain took the top spot in the UK charts last week. You can check out the launch trailer for the title here, which gives us a good overview of the game. There’s also several developer blogs that delve deeper into the title from the art direction to the music to the environment itself.

The protagonists of the game are part of a police force named Neuron. This means that not only must players deal with Chimera-related incidents, but actual police work is required. The protagonist can control five different Legion with each one having their own specifications. There’s also a beginners’ mode and activating this mode allows players to automatize various actions, making gameplay much easier.

Astral Chain won’t be the first part of a trilogy, unlike what was reported a while ago. There’s also another full trailer, which touches on some of the RPG and explorations features. Astral Chain launched last week exclusively for Nintendo Switch and you can order it right now on Amazon.
