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

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

Dont worry.

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.

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.

    MrWhite others are suggesting more cynical reasons, like promising better quality on blu ray to drive sales up. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite large chunks of detail were just blocky, and you couldn't see shit beyond the foreground layers. It's being blamed on streaming services, but I put it down to CGI masking by making it dark as possible (1 Day ago)

    MrWhite I downloaded a full, uncompressed 1080p source of it, and when I adjusted the brightness on both PC and TV, there were massive bitrate artifacting. (1 Day ago)
