SQUARE ENIX® today unveiled the full name for the upcoming action-packed addition to the NIER series as NieR: Automata.

During a stage presentation at Paris Games Week, producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST® X / NIER®) and director YOKO TARO (Drakengard® / NIER) provided audience members a first-look at the title’s gameplay, which features PlatinumGames’s signature action-oriented combat.

NIER struck a chord with many passionate gamers.  It was something so special that we felt compelled to heed the fans’ call for a follow-up,” said Saito. “To create the ultimate action-RPG, it dawned on me that a collaboration between PlatinumGames and SQUARE ENIX would be a dream come true.”

Accompanying the new trailer were a selection of screenshots and artwork that provides a glimpse of the visually diverse world of NieR: AUTOMATA. The title’s protagonist, “2B,” was designed by Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, artist for FINAL FANTASY® XIV and the BRAVELY DEFAULT® series.
