A few weeks ago, fans of Astral Chain noticed that PlatinumGames copyright from Astral Chain was removed. In a response from PlatinumGames, they have confirmed it: it is written as is on the website. In an interview that VGC did with PlatinumGames, Inaba released the following statement: "It's as it is written on the website: Astral Chain is their IP and as such there are limitations on how much we feel we can talk about."
What could this entail for future endeavors? Nobody really knows. It is now doubtful that Astral Chain will come to any other console. A sequel? Fans can hope.
Author's Note: Wow. I didn't expect that. I kind-of slept on Astral Chain - Maybe I should give it a go? I don't know. What are your thoughts?
