When action RPG Nier was released in 2010, it was both a critical sales dud. But despite the game feeling repetitive at points and despite critics saying that its graphics were a little more than average, the small amount of people who did buy the game loved it. Now, Nier is regarded as a cult classic.
So when Square Enix (the game’s publisher) announced something called ‘Nier New Project‘ at E3 2015, people were hopeful that the new game would right the wrongs of the first. Square kept quiet about any actual details though, but today that mysterious Nier title gets a name, Nier: Automata, and a new gameplay trailer has been released too.
