NieR: Automata, the sequel to the cult favourite NIER, gets an E3 teaser trailer.
The follow-up to the 2010 sleeper hit also has a different lettering format for its title. From NIER to NieR. Whatever could it mean?
Developed by Platinum Games, NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, our favourite pencil hardness, and A2, our favourite paper size, and follows their battle to reclaim a mechanoid-driven dystopia.
Square-Enix have also confirmed that NieR: Automata will release on PlayStation 4 in early 2017.
