Well she's happy about it (honestly I think it's super-duper likely she's part of it given the stupid amounts of success these OSTs have had).

The more I hear the better. :O

Wow, what a shocker. Nier is really one of the most underrated RPG's of last gen and I know it never did big numbers so I'm really pleasantly surprised we're getting another one. I also can't believe Platinum is working on this.
Guess we'll finally get gameplay that matches the quality of the story. Really happy for director Taro Yoko just because I remember hearing how he was basically unemployed after Drakengard 3 and doing mobile.
Props to Yoko for the choice with the Emil costume, I can only imagine the looks on people's faces in the audience, lol.

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.

Yeah, the tedious sidequests almost turned me off from the game in addition to all that backtracking you have to do in the first third-half of the game. I'm expecting that the staff got lots of feedback about it and we won't see much, if any, of it
in Nier 2

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

It's been named!  Let it be known as NieR Automata!

Quote
As Famitsu leaks come in, the next NieR game is reportedly title as “NieR Automata”. Nier Automata takes place on the devasted planet earth, and a battle between Androids created by humans, against the “Machine organisms” sent by the enemies of mankind.

In the upcoming Famitsu magazine, it apparently shows the characters and setting by Akihiko Yoshida. A character who appears to be the protagonist is called “Yorha #2 Type B” and holds both a sword and great sword. Long ranged attacks are made possible by a system called “pods”.

More information is due to come during Paris Games Week this week.

You know, a lot of people said that the original Nier was not good graphically.  And maybe on a technical level, counting mip-mappers or whatever, they were right.  But I always like the art and general design aesthetic of that game.  So it's really cool to see something similar with actual tech behind it.

I truly did nothing but repost. :P  But thank you!  I did squeeze it in before work!

I don't love it or hate it.  I certainly think it was one of those cases where the ideas going in did a lot me.  Mask people, shades with weird blood writing/reverse voice chanting, the peculiar homages to like 8 other games, and the peculiar story (I mean, what's up with that whole Forest Town segment? It's awesome!  But weird).

Being more honest: I still can't believe this is real; and not only that it's getting some big profile names behind it.  Drakengard had SOME fallowing at least, NieR really didn't besides being the most HIDDEN-est of gems ever, and even then it had a vocal "love it/despise it" crowd.

It really does. Not sure if I said it before, but Platinum Games working on this game made my hype level jump from "barely a blip on the radar" to "definitely something to watch out for", and thus far they are not disappointing. I might grab a copy of the First near from Gamestop later today just to get up to speed.

Gotta say that NieRevengeance is looking a lot tighter than NieR 1 did.


And revisiting a post made earlier...

There will be other things to ride besides boars.

GOTY.

I now somehow suspect that maybe there will be an Ultra Sleek, Hi-Tech, Jet Black, Sports Boar to ride as well. Or even possibly a butt/sword-copter as seen with Dude-Ornotobe below:

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

Will the same vocalist be creating the languages/lyrics/vocals? My fiancé is a linguist, and this made her ADORE this game. We ever performed the "Kaine" song a few times (trust me, singing harmony in a created language ISN'T EASY).

She hasn't said anything explicitly yet. I'm sure that Emi Evans will be on the OST, but perhaps not as much as she was on the first NieR. (y'know, she was only on like 2 or 3 songs in Drakengard 3).

She's easy to reach on FB or Twitter!

This is gonna be awesome. The combat they showed in the trailer is a night and day difference from the original Nier. I like the heroine design and that background art Dice posted looks beautiful.
We know Platinum can design combat in their sleep but I really want to see some exploration of the environments.

You know, a lot of people said that the original Nier was not good graphically.  And maybe on a technical level, counting mip-mappers or whatever, they were right.  But I always like the art and general design aesthetic of that game.  So it's really cool to see something similar with actual tech behind it.

Yeah, Nier had great art direction that was only held back by the budget and technical (both visuals and combat) issues on the developer's part. Part of why I'm so excited for this sequel is because we're seeing a Nier game with a bigger budget and that probably won't be held back by some of the technical and gameplay issues of the original. The first game actually had some pretty large areas to explore and I can't wait to see what the areas will look like in the sequel.

She hasn't said anything explicitly yet. I'm sure that Emi Evans will be on the OST, but perhaps not as much as she was on the first NieR. (y'know, she was only on like 2 or 3 songs in Drakengard 3).

I'm hoping she'll do more than 3 songs, as her vocals were a big part of the soundtrack, but if it's only 2 or 3 songs, it's still all good.
