Two talented parties teaming up to deliver one of the best games of the year.
Earlier this week, Platinum’s famously colourful Hideki Kamiya tweeted about how Yoko Taro of Square Enix, whom Platinum collaborated with on NieR Automata, had managed to ‘save’ Platinum. Kamiya candidly admitted that the success of NieR had been important for their studio, thanking Toro for his support.
Now, Toro has responded in kind, tweeting back that he is honoured to have received the chance to work with Platinum Games, and thanking them for their help and support in helping him realize his vision for Automata.
In the end, I think we can all agree that both parties were essential in Automata turning out to be what it is (which is, incredibly awesome)- it was Taro’s insane vision, and Platinum’s talent in realizing it, that has made Automata one of the best games of the year in a year full of great games. NieR Automata is out now on PS4 and PC.
