For those who first played the original NieR way back in 2010, it’s probably quite surprising where the series ended up. I’d wager no one expected the sequel, NieR: Automata, to become a huge title for publisher Square Enix with an iconic character that’s been in multiple crossovers. The 10th anniversary of the first game is here in 2020, and it seems we could be expecting something special soon.
In the latest issue of Famtisu, NieR: Automata Producer Yosuke Saito talked about the series, and when mentioning the 10th anniversary he said the company planned to celebrate the event with “this and that and an unannounced title.” It’s not clear exactly what Saito is referencing. Presumably the title he’s talking about a game, and Square Enix did recently trademark NieR again, so a remaster or remake of the first game seems to be a pretty good possibility.
There’s a 10th Anniversary website that’s live now, so at some point something will pop up there. We’ll keep you updated as information is revealed.
