An exclusive interview from Bunnygaming sits down with Taura Takahisa to talk about Platinum Games' recently released title Astral Chain. In the interview, Takahisa reveals he is unsure about the possibility of a sequel. He also notes that his previous remark from a different interview on Astral Chain being part of a trilogy was actually a mistranslation. Check out the snippet from the interview below.
BG – "Taura-san, you have mentioned in a previous interview that a sequel to Astral Chain is subjected to how well the game sells in the market. Does the studio have an expectation on how much sales at least to justify a sequel?"
Taura Takahisa – "I can only say that the idea of a sequel at this point is something I am unsure of and I do not have the current sales figure right now. But I will be very happy if the game is well received and sells well!"
BG – "It was rumoured that Astral Chain is part of a possible trilogy, do you already have an idea on how the next Astral Chain game would look in gameplay and story should you get to direct one?"
Taura Takahisa – "The trilogy remark was actually a mistranslation from a previous interview. I actually meant to say that I do have a lot of ideas at my disposal and if there’s an opportunity to make a sequel or more entries, I’d be able to do so."
