Platinum Games is known for its action gameplay (the Bayonetta series), and the new trailer for Nier: Automata shows that off quite well, giving a look at protagonist 2B's weapon prowess.

There are four weapon types in the game: small swords, large swords, spears, and combat bracers, and these can be switched up mid-attack depending on what you need. Combine this with 2B's light, heavy, and charged attacks – as well as ranged support from her aerial Pod – and she becomes unstoppable.

Nier: Automata comes out on March 7 for the PS4 and in 2017 on PC (Steam). For another look at the game, check out this previous combat trailer.

Note: The PC release date has been corrected from the original posting. We apologize for the error.
