Although I don't think it will be benefitting too much from the remaster treatment (unless they're incorporating both 'versions' of the game), I'm not complaining... will almost certainly pick up a physical copy, but as great as that special edition sounds I can't justify that sort of money.

If they don't improve the fishing mechanics, I WILL punch them.

And preferably give us an option to play as the father instead of the brother.

Just watched the livestream and noticed that the xbox one version can be upgraded to xbox series X according to the box art. No ps5 version.

Pretty stoked for this, especially since we didn't get this particular version of Nier in the West before. I didn't much like Automata but the original is the GOAT. Kinda odd that every platform version of the Limited Edition comes with a digital copy of the game and yet also comes with a steelbook. Seems kinda silly.

I'm so excited for the this game, played it on PS3 many times, but i really preferred gestalt instead of replicant, playing as the father was more convincing than the brother.
I liked Automata. Hopefully I'll like this game too.
Ready your tears then, the first game story is even more heart breaking than automata.

I wish they would make a standard version that has the steelbook case. I find this never happens with many games and you always have to buy the special edition that costs far to much. I will stick with the standard version of this game.

You could always shoplift a copy, if your concerns are purely cost.

Outside of Dragon Quest, this is the only other Square-Enix published franchise I'll give my hard earned dollars to. I'll have to settle for the standard edition because their store is a shitshow when delivering to Canada.
