Modernization: In hindsight, we really should have waited a few minutes before posting about the NieR: Automata Fan Festival. The event is now live in Japan, and a NieR “tease” posted to Twitter by Square Enix director and producer Yosuke Saito Kan Not related to a new project.
No, the black card was already covering a slice of information, noting that NieR Automata has now sold 7 million copies. Congratulations in order, we suppose.
Original story: NieR fans woke up today to rampant speculation about the possible announcement of a new project. It all stems from Square Enix producer and director Yosuke Saito, who posted a photo on Twitter, showing a stage that will soon be used. Said stage will be part of the NieR: Automata Fan Festival this weekend, which is taking place at the Tokyo Garden Theater in Japan.
As you can see, there seems to be a hidden logo on the stage design. The logos of the previous titles NieR Replicant and NieR: Automata are clearly visible, but then the third logo is covered by a piece of black card. Saito even brings up this fact in his tweet.
Thus, everyone is wondering what the card covers. Obviously, the most exciting answer is that a new game could be announced during the event — but honestly, who knows with NieR? we will Likely We advise you not to set your expectations too high, even though it looks like we’re going to deserve a new installment. Automata for PS4 was released over five years ago, after all.
However, it’s worth noting that this will be a relatively low-key event – it’s not a huge showcase for NieR or anything. Key members of the development team, including series writer and director Yoko Taro, are set to host the panels, and a live band will perform music from the games. We’re not sure if this is where Square Enix will unveil an all-new game in what’s become a fairly popular franchise – but then again, you never know.
