Last week, we wondered if developer Platinum Games was really a good fit for the Nier sequel .
Well, some people aren't worried. This includes the original game's director Taro Yoko, who is collaborating with Platinum and Square Enix on the new project.
As cited by DualShockers , Platinum boss Hideki Kamiya and Yoko traded some Tweets; Kamiya first said:
"We’ll do our best to meet Yoko-san’s expectations."
After which, Yoko replied:
"Platinum is doing such a great job, that I feel like I’m not necessary. …although in this industry we not longer use the term 'subcontractor' very often, it’s true that there are a lot of companies working with this philosophy of 'we just need to do what we’ve been told.' But Platinum is honestly a great company. It’s like when you order a regular set at Ten-ichi [a restaurant] and they give you free fried chicken and rice, as well as an extra cup of Kotteri [Ramen soup]."
Well, that's good to hear. There's no doubt that Platinum is indeed a great developer, which we never once doubted. The only question is whether or not they can retain the role-playing core of the original. But if you could've picked any developer in the world to do this sequel, what studio would you have selected?
