The NieR franchise is a bizarre one, as it started from a very niche title and then seemed to randomly explode in popularity due to its sequel, NieR Automata. It also has a unique focus on replaying the game’s campaign multiple times with each playthrough providing more and more story, often turning what you just did on its head plotwise. Now, it’s time for some news across the entire scope of the series come TGS.
A livestream has been announced to coincide with the event in question. The series has had a lot of these, but interestingly, this one seems like it’ll be pretty substantial as it will apparently have news for all three known titles in the NieR series: the currently available NieR Automata, the upcoming remaster of the first game NieR Replicant and the upcoming mobile title NieR Re[in]carnation. Replicant was recently rated in Taiwan so it’s possible a date could be coming, and we still don’t know much about Re[in]carnation. Automata is something of a wild card, so it’ll be interesting to see what they have for that game.
TGS 2020 will run from September 23rd to the 27th this year with digital events. The NieR livestream will be on the 24th. You can check out the full list of Square Enix’s planned show for the event through here.
