Square Enix E3 2015 - New Nier Title

June 16, 2015

Square Enix announced a new Nier project being created in conjunction with Platinum Games. The majority of the reveal trailer was dedicated to concept artwork alongside the names of the all-star development team. Yoko Tao, the director for the original Nier, will return to direct this new title. Hilariously, Tao wore a rather ridiculous helmet throughout his appearance. He acknowledged fan interest worldwide for a Nier sequel since the release of the original title. Atsushi Inaba, producer for almost all of Platinum Games' offering, stated that Platinum Games' inclusion in the project is to add their trademark style of action. No launch window was announced apart from Inaba stating that development will take a while to make. One of the direct confirmations was that the game is projected as a Playstation 4 exclusive.

The subtitle appeared distorted throughout the trailer and it hasn't explicitly been stated yet. Square Enix promises to reveal more information about this title will come in Fall 2015.
