Nier Automata has been turning heads with its elegant combat and stellar visuals. With the year developer Square Enix has been having, it’s no surprise the amount of hype behind this release. Luckily for fans we finally have some information about this upcoming release, and it’s pretty good news.
The above trailer was released during the Playstation Experience 2016 event and not only does it showcase the intense action and superb visuals already expected from Nier Automata, but also gives us a western release date. One March 7th 2017 you can expect to fire this bad boy up, but that isn’t the whole story.
If you’re itching for to get a taste of robotic rending action then you won’t need to wait for too much longer. No firm date is set, but a consumer demo is promised to be hitting PSN soon. It’s a small comfort without an actual release date, but hopefully it will hold people over until the March release. Now, the only question is what edition you should put your money into.
That’s right, on top of the shiny new trailer, the demo announcement, and the release date, we also got word of two special editions. First up is the Day One Edition includes exclusive skins for your ingame pod, which is useful both in and out of battle, and retails for $59.99.
The more exciting edition, however, is the Black Box Edition. Coming to $189.99, this edition is a beast. It will not only include a copy of the game but also a hardcover 64 page art book, and exclusive steelbook case with art by Akihiko Yoshida (Who worked on both Final Fantasy XV and Bravely Default Flying Fairy), a soundtrack with 13 live recordings from noth Nier and Nier Automata composed by Keiichi Okaba, and all the contents of the Day One Edition all wrapped up in a steel black collector’s edition box. The Black Box Edition is limited and will only be available through the Square Enix Online Store.
