New Nier game for PS4 revealed at Square Enix E3 press conference

Platinum Games reveals it’s developing a new Nier game for the PS4

It’s been five years since the original launched on last gen consoles and now Platinum Games (Metal Gear Rising Revengeance) has enlisted some big names to revive the franchise.

Yosuke Saito (Dragon Quest X) and director Yoko Taro (Drakengard) – who walked out on stage with a mask – are both involved with the project.

It’s apparently still in the very early stages so there’s not a lot to show and will take a while before it’s ready. We did get to see some footage, mostly made up of initial artwork, with a first glimpse at the female lead.

It looks like it could be a PS4 exclusive as well (sorry Xbox One fans) and we can expect to hear more details abut the new Nier game in the Autumn.
