With blockbuster hit Nier: Automata approaching its seventh birthday, followers are questioning after they’ll get a sequel. It appears like one is coming, however not any time quickly.
At Korean sport occasion G-STAR 2023, Sq. Enix producer Yosuke Saito stated, whereas Nier chief Yoko Taro is alive, they may launch a brand new entry within the Nier collection. That’s in response to a write-up by Japanese publication 4Gamer translated by Twitter consumer Genki.
Within the meantime, Saito and Taro are supposedly engaged on one other, non-Nier associated venture the pair hope to speak about someday in 2024.
Motion RPG Nier: Automata launched in 2017 and wowed critics and followers with its stunning areas and zany, fun-filled fight. It was a shock breakout hit for Sq. Enix, and went on to promote a formidable 7.5 million copies. There have been many crossover occasions since, numerous Nier-related promotions, and a remaster of the primary sport. There’s even a Nier anime. However up to now there’s been no phrase in a brand new mainline sequel.
Given the large reputation of Nier: Automata, you’d think about Sq. Enix would desire a follow-up out sooner slightly than later. However in response to 4Gamer, Taro stated repeating Automata’s large gross sales success can be “fully unimaginable”. Saito’s view was slightly softer, saying it wouldn’t be “simple”.
