Oh man, I loved Nier !
We're getting a sequel to the cult classic action/RPG and everyone's hoping for another unique, addictive game.
The lone caveat is that because the original developer, Cavia, is gone, PlatinumGames is now leading the charge. They're saying the new title will offer a "fresh blend of action and RPG gameplay styles" and yes, it will be exclusive to PlayStation 4. That's great news right there.
Plus, the all-star design team features producer Yosuke Saito ( Dragon Quest X , Nier ), director Yoko Taro ( Drakengard , Nier ), character designer Akihiko Yoshida Final Fantasy XIV , Bravely Default , game designer Takahisa Taura Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance , and composer Keiichi Okabe ( Tekken , Drakengard , Nier ). Nice to see so many people who worked on the original game!
I just hope it doesn't get all…um…Platinum-y. In other words, the focus should remain on the RPG part, and not require us to master combos or anything like that. Here's hoping.
