Square Enix finally loosened the wraps on the previously announced NieR: New Project at Paris Games Week by revealing its official title and the gameplay teaser above. NieR: Automata is the name and if you couldn’t immediately tell from the footage, PlatinumGames is working on the combat.
“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 producer Yosuke 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.”
Of course, the other big reveal from the trailer is a new piece of NieR music from returning composer Keiichi Okabe. The sound effects are graciously minimal so you can really focus on the otherworldly vocals and that fantastic percussion. NieR: Automata is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 but one thing Square Enix hasn’t announced yet is a release date. Check out a few more details on the starring heroine, 2B, and the story of Automata from the press release after the cut.
