Square Enix today revealed NieR New Project (temporary name), a new third-person action role-playing game and follow-up to the 2010 cult hit NieR. Offering a fresh blend of action and RPG gameplay styles, NieR New Project is currently being developed in collaboration with PlatinumGames Inc. exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
The game’s all-star development team consists of producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST® X / NieR), director YOKO TARO (Drakengard® / NieR), character designer Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, Inc. (FINAL FANTASY® XIV / BRAVELY DEFAULT®), game designer Takahisa Taura from PlatinumGames Inc. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA, Inc. (TEKKEN / Drakengard / NieR). PlatinumGames Inc. will be amplifying the action-oriented combat and building a beautifully diverse visual experience that will fully harness the graphical power of the PlayStation 4.

I’m so excited :’D After Drakengard 3 I didn’t expect another game of the series. A Sequel/Prequel/What-ever-quel of NieR is great.
My highlight for E3! NieR 2 ^^
Got to say, didn’t expect this. Not in a million years. Very pleased. And the protagonist looks typical Yoko, which is the best compliment possible. And with PlatinumGames on board, I’m sure the gameplay is going to be epic.
