Beautiful music and concept art. Here's hoping Platinum doesn't ruin this with their generally terrible art direction in every game.

The first game has this crazy loyal fanbase. Checked the game out and didn't think much of it. Maybe this will be better but i'm not holding my breath.

Also, could it have been THIS keighly was hyping?

Again, they are not doing any directing, nor music, nor art direction, only combat gameplay.

Dont worry.

I really loved the first one, it was a different kind of game that we are use to over here and it was a great experience.

Cant wait for this one myself.

Hmm this is a cool announcement. I never got round to playing the first one, but Platinum's involvement in this makes me very interested.

It's really disheartening that so many people missed the first game. Like Dragon's Dogma, it is one of those games that just slipped under the radar but need a lot more attention.

hmm that CG model looks more like an ingame model to be honest.

I love Nier, but I can certainly understand why it turned off some people. The visuals and gameplay are very rough around the edges. It's the story, characters, and music that really shine.

I am so freaking happy that this is happening. Having the original director and composer is key and all I really needed to be excited. Handing the combat to Platinum puts it on another level of hype.

I though I'm the only one who don't want Platinum Games to touch any game, overrated dev, I like Bayonetta 1 but 2 was boring.

well the first game was like the first version of Assassin's creed....
a game that you have to play.....
