What you need to know

- PlatinumGames is heavily rumored to be announcing a Kickstarter campaign for the Wonderful 101 in the near future.
PlatinumGames has opened a new website teasing something. It's a white 4 on a gray background, with #Platinum4 at the bottom of the website. It's not clear if this is a countdown, the number of games PlatinumGames is currently making or something else.
The font and colors used on the website are somewhat reminiscent of NieR: Automata. PlatinumGames developed NieR: Automata, sequel to NieR, which is technically a spinoff of the Drakengard franchise. There have been three Drakengard games so far, so it is theoretically possible that PlatinumGames could be making the fourth game. There's also the recent rumors that PlatinumGames will be announcing a Kickstarter campaign for the Wonderful 101 to come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and possibly Xbox One.
PlatinumGames is known for taking on multiple projects at a time, shipping Astral Chain for Nintendo Switch in 2019 while still continuing to work on Bayonetta 3 and Babylon's Fall for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 respectively. Recently, PlatinumGames announced a new deal with Tencent, who have provided the company with funding in a new partnership. PlatinumGames wants to use this funding to explore self-publishing while still retaining its independence.
Save your city
Astral Chain is a great action game for any Switch gamer. You'll control five Legions to protect your world from interdimensional invasion. Like a true officer, you'll undertake some detective work, rescue cats, stop crime in your city, and take down destructive chimera. It offers new fighting mechanics and gives you plenty of variation between Legions for some interesting combat options.
