NieR: Automata screenshot from the Glory to Mankind trailer

NieR: Automata is Platinum Games' upcoming action RPG with a heavy focus on precision strikes and well-timed dodges. It it set to arrive on March 7th in North America and March 10th in Europe and Australia, though its still unknown whether the PC and PS4 versions will be launching at the same time. That said, Square Enix has never mentioned any delays for the PC version either, so I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

If you're wondering what NieR: Automata's story is going to all be about, here's the most recent trailer to hopefully enlighten you. I haven't played the original NieR so none of this made any sense to me, but the Youtube comments sure are excited about various numbers and letters, so I might just be the odd one out here. Anyway, have a look:

And finally, if you're like me and that trailer has left you with more questions than answers, worry not as I have another, much more reasonable one to show you instead. This one is from the most recent E3 convention, so it is fairly old by this point, but it does feature a straight up boss battle set to some kickass music. So if you're wondering what NieR: Automata is truly all about, make sure to check the video out:
