Astral Chain for Nintendo Switch debuted at the top of the UK charts in the week of its debut, recording the second-best launch for a new IP Platinum Games since the time of Bayonetta (January 2010) and best launch for a game of the studio since Metal Gear Rising Revengeance (2013, debut in second position).
This is the sixth game for Nintendo Switch to reach the first position of the UK chart in 2019, undoubtedly a good result for Astral Chain, which manages to overcome the fierce competition of Wreckfest (second place), The Dark Pictures Anthology Man of Medan ( third position) and Control , who has to settle for fourth place.
