Astral Chain Collector’s Edition Platform: Switch Year: 2019 Region: PAL
Astral Chain released in August of 2019, exclusively for Switch. It’s a brand new action game by Platinum Games supervised by famous creator Hideki Kamiya. A collector’s edition was available as well.
The collector’s edition comes in a large paper box that slides open from both sides, representing a steel door. Opening the case will reveal the first item: a Shikishi-artboard illustrated by character artist Masakazu Katsura. These are individually numbered as well.
Below the artboard is a compartment that holds the game and soundtrack CD.
The soundtrack comes in its own jewel case, and features 31 tracks.
The game case has a reversible cover.
Lastly, there’s a sizable softcover artbook included as well. This 152 page book features artworks of the game’s characters, enemies, environments and more, and autographs by the development team.
In conclusion, while on the pricey side, this is a nice looking collector’s edition. It’s good to see a CE that’s individually numbered, and both the presentation of the package and its contents are rather nice.
