Nier had its fair share of flaws, but it was still a very special game, so it was a pleasant surprise when Square Enix announced a follow up for PS4 at E3.

Original developer Cavia are of course no more, so the new, currently untitled, game is in the hands of a another developer, that being the mighty Platinum Games. Original director Yoko Taro is however still involved, as is Keiichi Okabe who composed the well regarded musical score of the first game. There’s three playable characters and the game is apparently along the lines of the other game, though with some Platinum Games elements added to the ingredients, which sounds like a lovely concoction indeed.
