Yoko Taro says his talk show will mostly be drinking beer.
At the end of this month, we’re scheduled to have three streams dedicated to the NieR franchise. The series is really only two games, NeiR and NieR: Automata. The first game was more of a cult hit, but Automata was hugely successful, and people are excited to see what’s coming next. We’re hoping that new information about a new entry will be at the show, and the franchise’s oddball director will be there, too. And buddy, you better strap in, because it’s going to be a long one. You’ll need a beer or two, and Yoko Taro is definitely encouraging that.
Via Taro’s official Twitter, he said that the ‘talk show’ he’ll host as part of the streams will be 5 hours long. He says it’ll mostly be drinking beer, and he invites everyone watching to grab a few beers of their own and watch along (thanks to DualShockers for translating).
The other two streams will feature a concert and a stage play on March 29th (you can read more about it through here). Hopefully, we’ll get some kind of announcement among all the drinking. Square Enix recently filed a new trademark for the first NieR title, so a remaster or remake could be on the cards. We’ll just have to wait and see.
