Square Enix’s sleeper hit 2010 ACTION RPG NIER is getting a follow-up! It will be co-developed by Platinum Games

This upcoming NIER game was only announced for the PS4, implyng that it could be an exclusive. Fingers crossed, it will arrive to other platforms in future.
The game is a joint effort by Platinum’s Atsushi Inaba and Square’s Yosuke Saito. The former confirmed that the new NIER won’t be confined as an action game, similar to how Platinum Games molded stealth-based Metal Gear into a hack-and-slash affair in Revengeance.
