    Coming to Steam March 10th
    Square Enix introduced the unique array of weapon types, fluid combo system, and fast-paced battle mechanics of NieR: Automata in a new action-packed trailer.

    The game will feature four weapon types available to protagonist 2B (small swords, large swords, spears and combat bracers) that can be switched mid-combo to maximize 2B’s range of abilities and effectiveness. Players can also unlock a diverse arsenal of weapons and upgrades to the player’s “Pod” support system to enhance their gameplay.

    Lots of confusion about the release date.

    SE removed the video with the 3/10 Steam date for one that only features the 3/7 PS4 date:


    But apparently the one with the 3/10 release date was encoded more recently, so it points towards not being an old date, but just a mistaken wrong upload:


    Seems really sketchy either way, you'd think being only 2 weeks away they wouldn't be hiding the release date of the PC version if it's due out so soon, but that video was made so recently that they should know whether it's going to make that date or not.

    Told myself I wouldn't do it but I couldn't resist once I saw the game was in English. I bought the game on JP PSN since I'm gone the entire week for NA release.

    Should've taken days off from work, fuck today is going to be awful. Can't remember the last time I've been this hyped for a game.

    But yeah super tempted to do the same except I'm pretty sure I have this ordered already.

    I'm listening to the music Merka Dee is uploading. Makes me wish I had bought the black box edition.

    Nier had one of the best soundtracks of a game I ever played back in 2010





    Watched a few streams of the jp version but still trying to stay blind for this. I want all those drakengard and Nier reveals to surprise me again.

    For those looking to get this, here's a nice video series to introduce people to the story of the series as a whole, or serve as a recap if it's been a while. I'd thoroughly recommend watching the whole thing (Drakengard 1 > 2 > 3 > Nier for order), but you could skip right to Nier and get the gist of it. About ~45 minutes for each Drakengard game, ~95 minutes for Nier.

    Is there a better tl;dw because I'm not spending 4~ hours to learn the backstory of a game.

    There's that valkyrieaurora video but it's significantly worse in both information and pacing. It's ridiculously information dense without providing much context for it, in my opinion.

    This is cool, I needed a refresher on Drakengard since it's been years since I played 1.

    And I'd say you could just watch Nier, but Drakengard 1 and 3 have parts that lead up to it and are generally interesting/weird.

    Maybe things will change in the third/fourth playthrough and no doubt the story will still end up connected somehow, but I really don't think people will miss much if they just jump into Automata.

    Very light spoilers, the few connections I've seen so far:
    Spoiler: show

    -Popola and Devola are in the game
    -Emill is in the game
    -The Desert Zone is the Facade Kingdom from Nier

    Is the date for reals this time? If so, I might wait simply because I'm still hooked in Berseria and Horizon. And getting Zelda soon.
