Astral Chain labeled a big success by Platinum Games, IP is co-owned by Nintendo along with publishing rights

    Astral Chain surpassed the 1 million sales mark and Platinum Games considers it a big success! In an interview with VGC, Platinum Games studio head Atsushi Inaba elaborates on the success and the status of the IP. Here’s the excerpt:

    “In the case of Astral Chain, it’s an IP that’s owned half by Platinum and half by Nintendo. …Ultimately it’s Nintendo’s call (if the game hits other platforms), not ours. They own the publishing rights to Astral Chain so really we have no say in that matter. We consider The Wonderful 101 an exclusive case.

    “Of course we are very, very pleased with Astral Chain’s success. In particular, the feedback that we’ve gotten from reviews is very high. We hear that it’s been sold out in a lot of places, so we’re very pleased. We make the game, we don’t sell the games, so to get that kind of confirmation from users makes us very happy.”
