In an interview with Famitsu, NieR: Automata producer Yosuke Saito mentioned that the team was considering making a demo for the game before its official release, so that players could get a taste of what the game plays like. In addition to that, he also stated that there will be a new trailer shown at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show 2016 next month.
Here’s the translation, courtesy of Gematsu:
“I’m thinking about whether something like a demo, for example, would be good to give users a chance to get their hands on the game,” Saito said. “Rather than have users experience it within a short 10 or 20 minutes, I want users to properly experience NieR: Automata with a demo of a 30-to-40 minute, sit-down-and-play kind of volume.”
“While we’ve focused on showing the action up until now, I think we’ll be able to debut a trailer that gives off an ‘RPG’-like impression, so please look forward to it.”
This probably means that we’ll get a deeper look at the game during TGS, and we might even see new gameplay elements like the progression system, and how characters can gain new skills.
NieR: Automata will be coming to PS4 and PC in early 2017.
