ALSO Prime!!

There are 3 distinct recorded voices, maybe 4, in the boss battle theme in this new gameplay demo trailer (OMG so hawt!). The link I have there starts at 53 seconds.

Sounds quite a bit like Emi to me. Other voices elsewhere, but that voice is unmistakably Emi Evans.

Holy shit.  It's like a video game opera or some bananas. 

I love how it combines the bullet hell from NieR but that wonky camera thing from the Drakengard finale.

Yooooo, she's too fast. Like seriously, that's amazing how quick the character can move. I seriously can't wait for this game.

No other video this E3 made me feel like I wanted to be the one holding the controller and playing like that boss battle clip.

Highlight of the show for me, even with The Last Guardian and the new Zelda present.

Love it! Doesn't sound like Emi Evans to me, she has a slightly different timbre. But that doesn't sound like any language I know of, so I think the constructed speech is back.

So here's the thing, in the first game, Emi didn't create any languages. She studied the phonetics of a number of real-world languages, and then created wonderful sounding nonsense based on those. Not to knock this approach at all, in fact, it's super creative and as we know, was extremely successful. It's an entirely intuitive approach to writing vocals that just sound and feel right, without having to be tied down by meaning, or have to get wrapped up in making the morphosyntax work.

Here's one theory: maybe they went all out and wanted to make a real ConLang this time, instead of just random syllables. To do that, you need to hire a linguist, which Emi Evans is not. Find a linguist with a professional vocal background, and you're set!

Everyone's favorite foul mouth chick with a wang is back!

Stoked doesn't begin to describe my happiness level of this e3.

Uh, I thought THAT game was kept in Japan... The hero of Nier was a man... well, at least the game WE got before was a man...  There was a transgender but I thought he/she was a side-character... That does it, I need to buy the first game.

As a response to the harassment she received in her childhood for being intersex, she took a liking to clothes that emphasize feminine characteristics.

Now granted, this is a wiki page, and as such shouldn't be taken as 100% factual. However, a second playthrough of the game states this. Kaine's packing more than dual swords, hombre.

I think Emi Evans confirmed that she's working on vocals for the game! Including that boss battle theme. Git hyped.

Also both versions of Nier had male protagonists. The difference was in age and subsequently appearance and relationships.


As for Nier 2 discussions, I liked the way that To Be's hair bobbed around while running and such. Its just such a nice little detail (especially in comparison to all the ridiculously bad hair days that otherwise plague JRPGs and anime).

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Have you guys heard any interesting bits about this game in recent times?

Like how they are not putting in the Taro Yoko mini-game thingamajig at the end of every Drakengard game (please oh great eternal one)
