New Nier News Nearby? [Update: It's Just A Concert]
Update: The "amazing" announcement pertaining to Nier isn't related to a sequel. Instead, it's a concert to be held only in Japan on October 28. That isn't bad news, considering that Nier's soundtrack is one of its highlights...but the announcement is probably a bit disappointing for fans who were hoping for another game installment.
Nier has an audience of deserved fans, but it didn't seem to quite make the impact that demanded a follow-up when it released in 2010. Yosuke Saito, the producer of the game, is dropping hints on Twitter that there may be some news about Nier tomorrow.
A sequel to Nier is the obvious assumption, but it really could be anything. All Saito said was that there could be an amazing announcement soon, and then he tagged his tweet with the hashtag #Nier.
Joe Juba didn't get too excited about Nier when he reviewed it, but our reader review score is pretty high. What do you think? Do you want to play more Nier?
