That's great news! I would love if this game came out in January when there is not much going on. Same with gravity rush 2, unfortunately it's gonna get destroyed in December unless Sony delays it on purpose.

I'm glad more people get to experience Platinum goodness, so this is great news to me.

Nice to see those Activision cheques being cashed and going towards Nier. :D

From someone who loved Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, this is great news. Now I just need to play the first Nier before this launches.

Watch it and save yourself some time. That's what I'm gonna do before this hits anyway.

It's like the Mass Effect series, you're better off jumping straight to the second.

I wonder about the pc scale options, the textures are pretty close to Bayonetta 2 and MGR. a bump option would be a nice incentive.

Well, Yoko Taro said that the game will look exactly the same on both platforms, same resolution and fps. Is likely the PC will be a port too, so maybe will have better AA and that's it.

    droezelke @Tiz: Just read an interview with the gambling commision on the lootboxes in BF2. They have to investigate if what EA offers really is based on chance. Wait, what? That is proven and is advertised by (7 Hours ago)
