Nintendo Switch-exclusive Astral Chain charts at Number One in UK

Astral Chain- UK video game chart

Astral Chain- UK video game chart

The ranking is a first ever for PlatinumGames and demonstrates a strong start for the Switch title. Astral Chain is Platinum's fourth most successful launch in the United Kingdom, and its biggest new IP launch since Bayonetta back in January 2010.

Chris Plante writes for Polygon that Astral Chain "is the best new Nintendo franchise since Splatoon".

Los Angeles man charged with selling rapper Mac Miller drugs before overdose
He is expected to make his first court appearance on Wednesday afternoon in United States District Court in Los Angeles. He is the latest musician whose death has been linked in recent years to a national wave of opioid abuse and overdoses.

This action game was directed by Takahisa Taura, who previously worked on Nier: Automata, alongside supervision from Hideki Kamiya, who created Devil May Cry and Bayonetta.

Astral Chain makes it pretty clear from the get-go that you'll be facing tons of ridiculous bosses, and that's true right up to the final boss. In another example of what is becoming a depressingly regular practice, angry gamers have taken to review aggregate site Metacritic to "review-bomb" the game - the practice of multiple users spamming user review sites with a high volume of negative ratings in order to pull down the game's user score as low as possible. It's the sixth #1 Nintendo Switch release in the United Kingdom this year. In the meantime, I am still trying to wrap up Fire Emblem. That game reached the Number One UK Charts as well and was a well-received reboot of the series which had its last game back in 2007. This way, they can avoid continually needing to juggle the games they have installed. Pokemon Sword and Shield release on 15th November this year - the games always play a crucial part in Nintendo's Christmas sales. A Nintendo Switch exclusive, it released August 30 on the hybrid platform.
