A NieR Automata Sequel Would Be Different From What Everyone Is Expecting, Yoko Taro Says

"I'm going to ruin it."

Posted By | On 16th, Oct. 2017

Yoko Taro is an utter gem- the eccentric auteur is known mostly for the Drakengard and NieR games that he has helmed with Square Enix- but he did not hit the mainstream limelight until NieR Automata, the sequel to the original NieR, made it big earlier this year when it launched for PC and PS4.

Now, speaking to Famitsu (via Siliconera) about what a potential NieR Automata sequel would be like, he pointed out that it would probably be very different from what everyone expects, owing to his penchant for not liking traditional sequels. He jokes that he would “ruin it”.

“I think I’d imagine a NieR: Automata sequel that everyone is thinking about, then make something that is not that. I’m going to ruin it, is what I’m thinking,” he said.

Taro has an inimitable sense of humor, but don’t let that distract you from the simple fact that the man is a genius- whatever he makes is likely to be great. Let us hope we get to see what it is soon enough. For now, NieR Automata is available on PS4 and PC.
