Default New NIER from Platinum games announced

Wow, really didn't see this coming.

More info coming this Fall.

P* is also doing the new Star Fox, it's glad to see publishers wanting them so much.

Was about to post this. Nier was a great game that never really got the budget and love it deserved but with P+ in charge I hope it gets the stability it needs. Watched the trailer and looks like they're bringing the guys who made Nier back to work on the new one. Glad to see them detached from the mediocrity that was Cavia as a dev house.

I've not finished NIER yet but have really dug what I've played. The score, art, and writing are all great. combine that with P* gameplay and you've got a pretty all around great game.

That's my feeling. The creative is great behind this if you like weird stories with great music. I'm actually playing their last game with Cavia before it shuttered right now, Drakengard 3, and it's up there with Nier in it's cult appeal. If you can get past the low budgetness of Nier it's worth a play.

It's not much of a surprise but it's PS4 exclusive.

Wonder how long that will last. The first one was on 360 if I recall. Just glad it's going to happen.

Nier is now a great game? as I recalled it was a crap game with too much pandering to NA/EU tastes... which cause it to tank.

It's a crazy thing but, people can have different opinions.

Actually it's a cult classic much like Deadly Premonition and Swery's games. For NA they just changed the main character to something they thought westerners wanted, a burly manly man, and tried to sweep the fact one of the characters was a transsexual under the rug. The game is still fucked up and weird and a giant mashup off different characters with awesome music and a messed up story.
