Nintendo promoted this action title mentioning Kamiya, but this is a game PlatinumGames directed by Takahisa Taura.
Hideki Kamiya, director of games as well-known as Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Ōkami or Bayonetta among others, has been clarified to Nintendo Spain that Astral Chain PlatinumGames is the responsibility of its director Takahisa Taura, not yours.
The message of Nintendo promotes this action title to Switch with the text “The new game of @platinumgames comes exclusively to #NintendoSwitch the 30th of August. Are you ready for the new creation of @PG_Kamiya?”, a quote that has come to Kamiya, who has responded that it is a game of Taura.
It’s Taura’s. https://t.co/odrLnwiGVx— 神谷英樹 Hideki Kamiya (@PG_kamiya) August 10, 2019
Nintendo Spain has been rectified in a second message, asking for apologies for the misunderstanding: “@PG_taura is the director of #ASTRALCHAIN and @PG_kamiya is responsible for the supervision of the game.”
