New Nier



Made by PlatinumGames



Didn't see that coming. At the very least, they got my attention now.

Oh, c'mon; no offense, but a new Nier should have been enough cause for celebration, developers be darned.

I didn't like Neir, tbh. Didn't find it that fun, which is more important to me than a good story in an action-RPG.

I laughed, great picture choice. xD

And I do sympathize.  I played the game on easy just to kinda get through the tedious bits. =/
I definitely stuck around for the story, and not what it "offered" in gameplay.

I took a few photos from my iPhone with the Emil mask; I thought it was amazing! Man, a new NieR!

Honestly the most tedious thing about Nier for me was how easy it was.  General lack of challenge even on hard.  I don't think I would want to play it on easy...

This was indeed a problem. It also started getting weird with the gameplay bits. Often in ways I couldn't really appreciate. Like this: http://www.ricedigital.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Nier-Bullet-hell.png

And I liked shmups back in 2011 when I played it...but then again, I wasn't exactly stable in 2011, so who knows. Pretty sure it was one of my last Hollywood Video rentals, too...that might've soured things...

If anyone wants an MP3 of the trailer music, here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ttq0qr6m70p159z/teaser_bgm.mp3?dl=0

Also, am I the only one who didn't know
Code: [Select]
that Emil goes off to fight aliens after the end of Nier?! http://something-very-special.tumblr.com/post/48366067355/replicant-drama-cd-the-great-space-war

I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I wish drama CDs would get English voice editions. Sell it on iTunes for $5. I'll buy!

The "tedious bits" in the game all involve sidequests with some bad drop rates (or changing system date to grow flowers) and I don't think the difficulty really has much impact on that one. Certainly it should not be a difficulty issue with the amount of healing items available and how easy it is to dodge/block stuff.

SiliconEra got some more deets from Taro:

http://www.siliconera.com/2015/06/17/the-new-nier-game-will-bring-back-characters-from-the-first-game/

In the comments, someone had the insight/curiosity to ask if anyone had looked into the seraphic lettering.

The three-word phrase that appears in the promotional materials (including the website http://www.jp.square-enix.com/nier-new/ ) is "HUMAN DOLL MACHINE"

Yeah. That's AWESOME. Because that suggests some connection to Devola and Popola. Perhaps the girl in the trailer is a third girl, created in the same way as Devola&Popola. A sort of sister or daughter to them.

Trailer girl apparently has a bulge downstairs, indicating its probably Kaine.

Oh hey, they're doing the Three Heroes campaign. Sweet.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
