When the sequel to the cult classic hit Nier was officially announced for the PS4 at this year’s E3, it was most people’s understanding the game was being worked on by both Square Enix and Platinum Games. It turns out that Square Enix is not doing all that much work on this game and the Bayonneta developer appears to be very much taking the lead.

“Yes, the development is mostly taking place here at Platinum [in Osaka], and in our Tokyo office,” designer Yasuhisa Taura recently told GameSpot. “But we are of course getting help from Square Enix, and the composer for the original game is back to make new music. Also, the character design is being done by Akihiko Yoshida who works on CyDesignation, so we are borrowing people from other companies. But the majority of development is being done here.”

That seems to indicate that Platinum doesn’t want it to look as though Square Enix has basically bowed out of development at this point, but it’s clear the work is fairly one-sided. Of course, Taura is the one who came up with the concept of the original Nier, so the game is in the right hands when it’s being made by Platinum Games. The fact that the game is in development at all is a bit of a surprise to some, considering this isn’t the most well known titles out there. It is much loved by players despite not being the most hyped by games critics. The release date for the Nier sequel isn’t known at this point
