NieR It is one of the most acclaimed video game series in recent years. However, the last time we saw a new game in this franchise was in 2021, when NieR Reincarnation came to mobile devices. Since then, fans have been wondering when Yoko Taro’s masterpiece will return to our lives. luckily, This seems to be the case in the future.
Last weekend the G-STAR 2023 event took place in South Korea, where NieR creator Yoko Taro and series producer Yosuke Saito had the chance to talk about development. NieR: Automata. As expected, the future of this franchise was a topic of conversation at this presentation. Although there is no clear information at the moment, Saito mentioned that NieR will continue to be owned as long as Taro lives.
however, Issues beyond their control prevented the NieR series from getting another installment as soon as they wanted.. Along with this, Saito mentioned that he is working with Taro on a new game separate from NieR, which he hopes to talk about sometime in 2024.
Let us remember that NieR started as a continuation of the Drakengard series. Although the first title in the series was not as successful as expected, Yoko Taro did not give up, and in 2017 she gave us NieR: Automatawhich was developed by Platinum Games. This installment turned out to be a huge success for Square Enix, who not only invested heavily in the property, but Yoko Taro’s name started to be heard everywhere.
After Automata Square Enix gave us NieR replicant ver.1.22474487139…, a remastering of the original game with a series of improvements of all kinds. later, In 2021 we saw NieR RebornA game for mobile devicesWhich, although it doesn’t continue the story of the first two titles, expands its world.
While we haven’t seen any new NieR games since then, Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito have been busy with various projects. We were given three sets of Voice of Cards within a span of just one year, a series of RPGs with a minimal visual style, which is well suited to the story with Taro’s classic touches. Similarly, it reached mobile devices in the same year 404 Game Re:set In collaboration with SEGA.
And if that’s not enough, Saito has already confirmed another game away from NieR, which we’ll hear more about next year. Returning to the beloved series, although there is no concrete information at the moment, recent statements from the producer make it clear that we have not seen the last of NieR yet.
However, it is likely that the next game in the series will stray away from the story of 2B and company. Last consideration Automata, We will probably see a story that takes place in this worldBut we already know that far from adventure, although the possibility that we will see the events that happen in them cannot be ruled out. transcriber y AutomataThat would be interesting.
On a related note, the NieR 12024 Orchestra trailer appeared, but was deleted. Similarly, a Japanese model surprises us with her 2B cosplay.
NieR is a fantastic series born from Drakengard, a movement that no one expected, that could only come from the mind of Yoko Taro. Honestly, anything with this developer’s name on it will definitely be worth it, but it won’t be for everyone.
