Release: February 2017 (Japan) Platform: PS4 I struggled to get through the orignal Nier on PS3. Despite loving the story and music, I found the gameplay and padding to get all the endings extremely tedious. I hoped Yoko Taro's follow up title Drakengard 3 would deliver a more linear/smoother action experience but that game was a real hot mess from top to bottom. Now by some miracle Platinum Games (Bayonetta/Vanquish/Metal Gear Rising etc) of all studios are heading up the production of an offshoot sequel to NieR. The reveal trailer footage speaks for itself. If all the stars align as they should this game could be fantastic!
