Two new titles are in development by NieR’s duo, Yoko Taro from Bukkuro and Yosuke Saito from Square Enix. The information came during the live broadcast, “Games Industry Chit-Chat 2020 Year-End Party “.
According to Saito, he received a proposal from Taro to make a particular game about a year ago, but he rejected the idea because he felt strongly that he would never want to make such a game. But Taro was determined and tried to convince Saito with an hour-long presentation. Although it was not easy to convince, Saito accepted Yoko Taro’s proposal as a result, and develop the game was decided. However, even now, a year later, Saito admits that he is not at all enthusiastic about this, saying: “if I could stop, I would do it”.
In addition to the game, Saito is reluctantly working on, a new separate title from Saito and Yoko Taro that the pair mutually agreed to are also in preparation. This new title is planned to launch before the title mentioned earlier.
