The two years since NieR:Automata was released have passed by in a flash, and in those two years, we’ve hit four million sales. That’s a new number in PlatinumGames’ history for sure. It’s all because of you fans out there who’ve continued to support us and NieR:Automata. I sincerely thank you!
Up until now, it’s felt like YOKO TARO and Square Enix were humoring us as we invited ourselves in to the world they created, but looking at that number, I finally feel at home. Thank you in advance for all your continued support!Eijiro Nishimura, Producer
