During Square Enix’s E3 Press Conference, the house of Final Fantasy unveiled a new game developed in collaboration with Platinum Games and Directed by Yoko Taro
Oh hell yes. Square Enix is killing it. With the devs incredible storytelling and Platinum awesome gameplay. This will be one hell of a game.
Now Platinum Games has catered to everyone making a PS4 exclusive next, great studio
Sony camp just keeps getting better and better.
PS4 exclusive. Sony so good that they also win at the Square Enix Conference. It's like Sony is Steph Curry on fire shooting 3s.
They announced the development has just begun? Why is Sony announcing everything so early?
Sony pleaaaaaase i can't take this anymore!!! NieR? SERIOUSLY????? by Platinum games? http://a.disquscdn.com/uplo...
SQUARE ENIX WON E3 2015
@mikeslemonade You are mad cool A chef curry reference........ Keep cookin em my dude
I didn't like the original.
WHAT... there is Nier 2 ?!! and made by PG ?! *faints*
Quite a few 3rd party exclusives for PS4... and another one from Square. Microsoft wasted so much money on Minecraft, instead of investing on 3rd party games or new studios. I don't think Microsoft will ever recover those 2,5 billion spent on Minecraft. Microsoft need to work harder and better if they want to improve X1 sales.
They'll recoup it. Maybe not in actually selling games, but the licensing of Minecraft stuff is definitely going to get them money. Thats assuming that the game doesn't lose interest, as is possible with games that trend for a while. I wish they'd stop trying to market it with Halolens though. People are putting a lot of hope into a tech that's not going to be priced for mass purchase anytime soon.
OH MY GOD I WAS JOKING WHEM I CALLED THIS BUT I WAS RIGHT LOLOL.
" It's Neir 2...... BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!! Sorry, even I couldn't keep a straight face on that one. " You nailed it! +BUB
Wow.. Looks like Square is listening to the fans! Respect!
Square Enix is seriously coming back with a big bang. Oh my... They are actually listening to their fans in a way i didnt expect. Square Enix have officially become my favorite publisher.
It just keeps getting better.
Hope platinum don't turn it in to some super fast action game.
I thought Nier was a really subpar game. Even though its a sucess in Japan, I dont remember it being to much of a hit in US and EU. Some spinoffs (sequel or prequel) released only in Japan because of this. Well, I hope its a good game and caters to a new audience and fanbase for a great IP.
dude, its bloody Platinum Games and Square Enix.
Enuff said right there.
A lot of good games aren't much of a hit, commercially. Nier was superb, in my opinion. I didn't expect- or get- revolutions in gameplay or the best graphics ever, though both were solid. I WAS treated to a great story and amazing music, though, and these two things are right at the top of my importance scale.
Loved Nier. Can't wait for this.
yes this, played and loved nier on ps3
Still haven't 'finished' the first one. I still have to do the second playthrough in order to get the complete story. This will definitely give me the incentive to fire it up again.
We're finally going to get a Platinum game with a good story!
Yes!!!! I love Platinum games. :)
What? I want a Bushido Blade 2 from Platinum, not the mediocre Nier sequel. But hey, it is platinum so let's see how it turns out on Ps4.
***"not the mediocre Nier sequel"** How do you know the sequel will be mediocre?
Not defending Rookie_Monster, but clearing up his statement "What? I want a Bushido Blade 2 from Platinum, not a sequel to the medicore Nier"
^^^ Ah, I misread it. I never played Nier so I can't judge on whether it's truly mediocre or not, but it does seem to have a following, as it was mentioned during the conference that there are fans requesting a sequel for it. The key thing here is that Platinum is developing the game more so than which game is getting a sequel anyway because if the game is good people are gonna buy it anyway regardless if the previous entry was merely average or bad.
Did Platinum Games make the first one? Sony really is the new PS2. The title shown was Nier and some incomprehensible text. Could it be a prequel? So many questions!
Square Enix is not coming back. Are you guys watching the same thing I am? No release dates - no real game play - these games are no where NEAR finished. Same crap, different year. I am infuriated at how they can keep doing this and people keep giving them money. Call me when FFVIIR is done. If I am not dead first.
oooooohh so salty
There is salty, and there is intelligent recognition of a company not learning its lesson. I am not going to applaud them for vapor ware and promises. Promises mean nothing to me after the nightmares that were Final Fantasy X, X-2,XIII 1, 2, and 3. Intelligent people wait to see results. Not praise the pretty lights they think distract the "common folk".
well even tho im glad SE finally woke up. he do have a point SE has been off for like ten years. most of their gameplay was in engine or in game tho.
They showed gameplay and a release date for SO5 so what were you talking about. People always angry about stupid things.
Square seems to be leveraging their products well so I don't see how you can say they're not making a comeback. They have Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3, Deus Ex, Hitman, FF Type 0, FF Heavensward and Dragonquest Heroes in ONE calender year released and next year they have Star Ocean 5 and a new Final Fantasy game releasing on PS4. Add in DQ Heroes 2 in development with, Nier, KH and FF XV. That's quite a few releases and games in development so I don't understand what your suggesting even. What other company is releasing that many games in a single year other than maybe Nintendo.
Tomb Raider - Timed XBox Exclusive - a smaller install base. Deus Ex - Ok? Hitman - No release date. FF Type 0 - Only sold what it did for the Episode Duscae demo. My opinion but can we really argue that the Demo did not influence any purchases? Heavensward - I will 100% agree with you here. They are doing well with that game, but that is one man running one part of their studio. He is the only reason that game is doing well. Just Cause 3 - No Release Date FF7R - No release date. No gameplay. KH3 - No Release date. A little gameplay. FFXV - No Release Date. The most gameplay we have seen so far. Nier - No Release Date. DQ Heroes 2 - No release date. Releasing what, when? Square is good at making us promises. Always have been. I won't debate that. Show me proof of real results here.
Did you actually check your facts BEFORE posting like at all?! No date for Hit man?! It says December 8th at the end of the trailer. Just Cause 3 says holiday 2015. So this year alone. February FF Type 0 and Life is Strange March Ultimate Stealth and Action Pack May FF X/X-2 June FF Heavensward October Dragon quest Heroes November Tomb Raider December Hit man That is quite a few releases for one calender year. So again what?! You claim no release dates yet official dates show up in the new trailers. So before painting yourself as 'intelligent' when you can't even find release dates maybe try taking off your goggles.
I'm excited for this one, but what kind of game is this one? Its like Bayo, RPG, or what anyone has more info?
No way so PS4 is even getting exclusives that werent announced during its own conference. They really came out big.
If certain people can convince themselves that Sony didn't win E3 at their own conference, can we just say that PS4 won this E3? Because I'm counting the new exclusive games, new IPs, and the diversity, and PS4 is killing it. Harnessing the return of the big PS2 genres. Return of the JRPGs: Nier 2, Persona 5, Star Ocean 5, Final Fantasy VII Remake, The World of Final Fantasy, Disgeae 5, Dragon Quest Heroes I & II, Tales of Zesteria, Tales of Bersia, Level-5's upcoming JRPG, and Sony Japan Studio's upcoming JRPG.
They don't need to convince themselves, they just need to take the fanboy goggles off. They way I can tell sony clearly won is that sony fans are absolutely buzzing from all the announcements and it's genuine.
ps4 is number 1 platform for games now
back to ps2 dominance
Nier? Wow i was expecting better than that, nothing but disappointment this E3
Nier had one of the best stories I've seen in an RPG...and that second playthrough when your whole outlook gets turned on it's head with new revelations....that soundtrack (youtube 'Temple of the Drifting Sands' for a taster)and that final ending!!!!!! Damn, can't wait for this! Anyone who hasn't played Nier, really shouldn't comment at all
This has to be one of the most unpredictable E3's ever.
Can't wait for it! "PS4 has no exclusives!" Sure
The new argument created from thin air is that because it is not releasing on 2015, it doesn't count. Can you believe that?
well, that came out of nowhere. not unwelcome, but very unexpected.
Looks awesome & WILL be awesome for the fact that it's platinum games!!! Can someten fill me in though? Is this a new IP or established franchise? Genre? Is it like Bayonetta or a RPG, if so turn based or real time? Is it a small game or high production like Scalebound? So many questions lol
More exclusives from JP devs at tgs can't wait and then more at experience.
Playstation is winning the iron throne on the Games of Consoles.
Holy Shit! A PS4 exclusive made by PLATINUM GAMES....!!!!!! Yooooo! Sony and SQUARE are on Fire!!! And holy shit Platinum is seriously spread thin.... Scalebound Transformers:Destruction Starfox:Zero Nier 2 They're officially on all platforms. Now I want them to partner exclusively with Sony Japan... This is incredible! Square is on fire!!!
That was pretty awesome. It looks like everything I have seen has great possibility for Ps4 E3.
