    Nier series creator Yoko Taro has casually announced at Gamescom that NieR: Automata will have a Steam release alongside the PS4 version sometime in early 2017.

    You can already preorder the Steam version through SE's online store. The official Square Enix JP Youtube channel has also uploaded two videos from the upcoming game's sound track, which you can listen to here and here.

    The game is beautiful! Best looking thing I've seen come from Square in a long while!

    Now for that old Enix feel... still awaiting the return of Dragon Quest 7 also.

    I didn't care much for the Xbox360 version of the first one. Didn't play the PS3 version because if I recall right, it's only in Japanese.... This one, though, I might pick up.

    NieR on 360/PS3 were both in English.
    The Japanese versions featured a different protagonist.

    I've heard of Nier, but never seen or played it. However, watching that gameplay video with the beautiful graphics I'm definitely interested. Looks like I gotta check out the original on the PS3.

    Check out the original Drakengard games too. They're directly related to NieR, with one of Drakengard 1's endings leading right into the NieR universe.
