    Completely unexpected. I really hope it's better than the first. I'm interested.

    Haven't played Nier and Drakengard 3 yet, but looking forward to this.

    Official Site with some soothing music, the trailer and the sceneries shown in the trailer is up: Link

    Taro Yoko also made a facebook post expressing his gratitude. Furthermore, you can find images from the teaser in the article for the game on Famitsu.com and there's also an article with statements from Yoko over on Gamespot.

    Doesn't mean much. Star Ocean V was reportedly finished at 30% when it was announced a few months ago and it is now being terminated for a 2016 release.

    I do warn you - while the people behind the games are roughly the same, NieR and Drakengard 3 are fairly different.

    This was taken from the new Nier trailer.
    Does anyone know what this means?

    Now I'm just overthinking about it. What if the story of the girl in the trailer is similar to the movie Bicentennial Man, wherein the robot (doll in the new Nier's case) wants to be accepted as human. I don't know it just popped into my brain. Just sharing some thoughts on the translation you gave.
    But anyways, I'm stoked for more info. Please be at Gamescom!

    Two great videos. THe E3 trailer, and a boss battle with a boss who would only have come from the Drakengard/Nier multiverse. Those dolls it's using as adornments (possibly slain YorHa units)...





    So looking forward to when it releases. I've fallen in love with this multiverse. Makes a pleasant change from the saccharine Dragon Quests/Star Oceans and other formulaic or play-safe JRPG series of this world.

    Wow, that boss gameplay looks amazing. I love how fluid the character's movement looks. And that music. I need to finally play the first Nier.

    Well be prepared for some extreme wierdness in gameplay and narrative. Oh, and it's a Drakengard/Nier game developed by Cavia prior to closing, so not as polished as it might be. But it will be an experience. One of the few games that reduced me to abject tears for several minutes.... several times.

    One of my favourite games last gen was NieR. It wonderful concoction of weird and wonderful charm. And a game that really gets to the heartstrings.

    I can't wait to see why Automata has in store!

    NieR Automata is also bound for PC as a Steam exclusive, simultaneous release alongside the PS4 version of the game.

    Source: Gematsu

    Unless this doesn't run like utter rubbish on my machine like Type-0 and X/X-2 HD did, I will get the PS4 version anyway.
