A new Japanese TV spot for it. Shows a new enemy. Hardly spoilery at all. First half is made up of footage from that Amazarashi collaborative video. Also... CERO D! It's a true Drakengard/Nier project.

Two new gameplay videos, showing off the scenery. Their framerate isn't great, but I think that's the site's capturing equipment rather than the game itself.

damn, look at the number of views; i'm impressed.
Wow, just wow. Considering the DOD3 English and Japanese trailers combined still come under one million views, I'm glad that Automata is at least receiving some attention. Here's hoping some of that attention translates into sales. After all, it's got the fan appeal of Nier, the pedigree of Platinum, and a very well received demo behind it. Games have succeeded on less than that.

That's really impressive. I'm glad the game is getting a lot of attention. I need to try to finish the original before I play Automata.
Be prepared to have your stoicism tested by the first playthrough, your heart torn to shreds by the second, and your soul ripped apart by the third and fourth. It's only one of a few times with games I've ever actually cried and had to stop and walk away so I didn't mess any equipment up with my tears.

Ahhh so multiple endings I see...hmmm. I don't know if I'll make it through that many runs, but who knows.

Yeah, multiple endings is a staple of both Drakengard and Nier. It's explained in-universe in Drakengard 3... sort of... but don't worry - You only need to play the last third or so of Nier to get the second, third and fourth endings, not the entire thing all over again. I'll save what happens in the forth ending for you to discover. Don't spoil yourself...

Awesome!! I am glad I won't have to start all the way over then. I would have been done with Drakengard 3 by now, but the huge random grind wall got thrown in my face in order to unlock the last branch. I'll complete that last branch someday, but not soon.

The latest patch to Final Fantasy XV included two Nier-related songs. One of them is theme song "Weight of the World" performed by J'Nique Nicole. Here's the full, clean version at last!

It seems Amazon JP reviews are trashing the game a bit. I used Google translate so it was mostly gibberish but from what I made out of it the main complaints are:
  • it's too short
  • lots of bugs
  • combat is too reliant on pod shooting
