In our review of NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition, Emanuele Gregori wrote: “Nier: Automata is still today an undisputed pearl and will remain so for many years to come. Net of production certainly not very expensive, it finds its maximum expression in an overwhelming and touching storyline, hilarious gameplay and a great title structure and longevity.
In these two years, the well-deserved success of the game and the consequent opening of the franchise to the general public have allowed it to exceed three and a half million copies sold and to convince investors to give Taro creative freedom. This is why we are looking forward to discovering what the future of the series holds for us, with the hope of soon being able to get my hands on a new chapter, be it a further Nier, or a new Drakengard. “
