The game was announced at this year’s E3, but the new trailer gives us a little insight into the gameplay and story aspects of this Platinum Games-developed RPG. Producer Yosuke Saito has held off on revealing any story details until now, as he didn’t want any spoilers released. But now he’s ready to talk:

“The world that you see in Nier: Automata is one where androids and mechanized weapons clash in ferocious combat and deserted wasteland.”

Fans of the original will see some familiar faces. Twitter has already seen a few excited reactions to the promise of returning characters. 

It seems like the game will attract old and new fans alike.

Hi guys, The names Toby and I'm from the UK, I'm 26 years old and I've had a huge passion for the gaming world pretty much since birth. My first gaming console was the NES and I've got my parents to thank for that one, since then I have been gaming non stop, mainly on Nintendo consoles and handhelds but I've recently branched out into Sony's world and I'm playing a lot of Steam games. My favourite genre's are probably JRPG's, Platform, Action/Adventure and I love games with a good story, things like The Last Of Us, Ni No Kuni, the Professor Layton series. I'm a massive Zelda nut, always loved the franchise, the characters and the different art styles, not to mention the music. Apart from gaming I enjoy going to the gym, reading and general socialising. Quite a big film buff as well and I love my music and the cinema! That's me in a nutshell anyways, look forward to chatting games with you all! :)
