Square Enix is going back to what they do best with a followup to a very classic action RPG. NieR: Automata is nearing completion and to help celebrate the coming of the new game, they’ve released a new teaser trailer during their press conference at E3.
NieR: Automata will slide into our living rooms in early 2017
Square Enix and the developer, PlatinumGames, are making some great progress, and the art style is reminiscent of quite a few successful past projects. This sequel to the original NieR will tell the story of three androids; 2B, 9S and A2. It’ll follow them as they seek to reclaim their home. Furthermore, 2B will be the main character and will be the locus of the story. It’ll be solely available for the PlayStation 4 when it releases in early 2017.
