Astral Chain was released last week to much acclaim and high sales (you can even check out our own review here). So far, it has only been released for the Switch - which isn't all that strange considering Nintendo is the publisher - but a fan asked producer Hideki Kamiya on Twitter (translated via NintendoSoup) the following question on Twitter:
"Why wasn't Astral Chain released for PS4? Do you hate Playstation?"
Kamiya responded like this:
"Why... would be great to have Mario, Zelda, and Metroid (on PS4) too but...As for do I hate Playstation... I'm just a developer fulfilling my contractual obligations so I don't know, maybe you can try asking my publisher and investor Nintendo?"
Even if Nintendo was asked, the chances are less than slim that Astral Chain would be released for anything other than Switch. Exclusivity has certainly riled some fans up as well, as reports on Reddit indicate that some are turning to 'review bombing' (posting negative review regardless of how good the game is) it on Metacritic.
Do you mind that it's exclusive?
