NieR: Automata was featured at Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference today, and while we couldn’t really make much sense of what was going on in the new footage, we did finally get a firm release date for the game. From what we could gather, there was a lot of shouting, and we also got a look at some of the androids that will be populating the world. As expected, we didn’t get too much in the way of plot and story.
More importantly, the trailer revealed that the game will be released on February 23, 2017. Do note that this release date is currently only for Japan, and it’s not yet certain if the game will be released in North America and Europe on that date as well. We’ll keep you updated as soon as more details come our way, and when the trailer has been uploaded.
NieR: Automata will be released for the PS4 and PC on February 23, 2017 in Japan.
