Earlier today, Square Enix unveiled the full name for the upcoming action-packed addition to the NIER series as NieR: Automata
During a stage presentation at Paris Games Week, producer Yosuke Saito and director Yoko Taro (both responsible for the original NieR) provided audience members a first-look at the title’s gameplay, which features PlatinumGames’s signature action-oriented combat. You can check the trailer below:
“NIER struck a chord with many passionate gamers. It was something so special that we felt compelled to heed the fans’ call for a follow-up,” said Saito. “To create the ultimate action-RPG, it dawned on me that a collaboration between PlatinumGames and Square Enix would be a dream come true.”
NieR: Automata is still a work in progress without a release date and will launch exclusively on PlayStation 4.
