Astral Chain is the latest big exclusive to launch on the Nintendo Switch and PlatinumGames’ first original IP on the system.
It’s one of the most unique games Platinum has ever created, taking place in a dystopic cyberpunk future where humanity is on the brink of extinction.
The Switch has had a strong couple of years for exclusives, so you might be wondering how Astral Chain stacks up against all the other Switch exclusives out there. Well, that’s exactly what we’re here for.
Below you can see how Astral Chain stacks up against the Metacritic score of every Nintendo Switch exclusive. If you want to see more than just the hard data, continue scrolling down to see our take.
Do note, however, that we haven’t included any rerelease or remaster for Switch, like Bayonetta 2 or Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Octopath Traveler also doesn’t qualify anymore due to it releasing on PC.
