The original NieR developed a cult following since its launch on the PS3 back in 2010. Platinum Games is currently developing the action-packed sequel, NieR: Automata, and it certainly looks pretty.
Platinum is looking to bring back the most loved aspects of the original while bringing the combat up to their A+ standards, and so far things are looking good on that front. In the newest screenshots we get a look at some new enemies, as well as a glimpse of some new abilities you have at your disposal, like the bullet shield that your little buddy can generate in front of you.
Aside from the screens, you can see some of the gameplay in the trailer above. While the combat looks quite frenetic, the enemy designs themselves seem a bit dull. Hopefully, more inventive designs will be revealed before the game releases.0comments
