In the last few days, angry gamers all over the world review bombed Astral Chain on Metacritic just because it was exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
A Japanese Twitter user, who really wanted the game to come to PlayStation 4, tried their luck by asking none other than PlatinumGames director Hideki Kamiya himself. This is what he asked Kamiya (translated by NintendoSoup):
“Why wasn’t Astral Chain released for PS4? Do you hate PlayStation?”
And this is what he said (translated by NintendoSoup):
何ででしょうね…マリオもゼルダもメトロイドも出せばいいのに…PS嫌いなんですかね…開発請負の我々には分からないので出資・版元の任天堂に聞いてみてもらえますか…？ RT @ririnnrinnemu 何でPS4にアストロルチェイン出さないんですか？

“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?”
What do you think of his response? Let us know in the comments.
