Forums - Sales Discussion - Astral Chain director says the game has sold “above expectations”

Article

The upcoming issue of Famitsu will have an interesting talk between PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya and Takahisa Taura on a variety of topics. Thanks to a few excerpts being posted early, we now know that the director of Astral Chain, Takahisa Taura, is quite pleased with the Switch exclusive’s performance, stating: “Thankfully, Astral Chain has sold above expectations.”

The discussion also includes Japanese game director and scenario writer Yoko Taro. Naturally, the conversation gets strange and fascinating very quickly. Look forward to more coverage soon.

It is probably around or above 1.5M units sold at this point. All in all, good numbers for them !

Only if it sold a million in the last quarter, which unfortunately I don't see it coming

Awesome! MY GOTY! Hope we get a sequel on Switch!

Well, it's a brand new IP with new mechanics and a good universe, so it's normal that people are interested in it

No, Nintendo discloses million sellers by fiscal year, not fiscal quarters. If Astral Chain managed 1m+ since its release in August, it will show up. If it doesn't show up, it has one last chance to do so in the earnings release for the full fiscal year.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wish they released an actual figure, but oh well.
