NieR: Automata - New Trailer

by Silver, 2016-12-18 19:40:54

@PCGamesN they show us a new trailer for NieR: Automata which highlights some easter egg weapons from other rpgs.

Besides reaffirming the Japanese console release date of February 23, the main draw of this trailer is that Nier:Automata will features some famous weapons from other Square Enix franchises. Noctis’ Engine Blade from Final Fantasy XV will be equippable, as well as the Cypress Stick from the Dragon Quest franchise. While the Engine Blade looks like your typical dieselpunk sword, the Cypress Stick causes slight graphical changes when equipped, with chests looking like the ones found in Dragon Quest and damage numbers using the Dragon Quest font.

While these are all great Easter eggs for JRPG fans, it still does not answer the question of when Nier:Automata is coming to PC. A demo is coming to console on December 22, but there has been no news if PC players will also get to play this snippet of the full game as well. Initial reports from Square Enix stated that the PC version was set to release on the same day as console, but that claim has since been taken back with no other information forthcoming.
