Platinum Games: “We Will Strive to Continue Delivering High-Quality Games to You”

Earlier this week, Microsoft officially cancelled Scalebound, Platinum Games’s Xbox One and PC title. According to Eurogamer sources, the pressure of Scalebound’s heavy workload forced several senior members to take a month off. When they returned, production was behind schedule, and issues continued to surround the game’s engine and missed deadlines, so the decision was made to cancel it. In Platinum’s first statement since the cancellation of Scalebound, President and CEO Kenichi Sato said they’ll strive to continue delivering high-quality games, beginning with NieR: Automata for PlayStation 4 in March: We’re sorry to say that on January 9, 2017, Microsoft Studios announced the cancellation of Scalebound. We are very disappointed things ended up this way, especially since we know many of our fans were looking forward to this game as much as we were. Going forward, we will strive to continue delivering high-quality games to you, starting with NieR:Automata in March, and including products like GRANBLUE FANTASY Project Re:Link and LOST ORDER [both only confirmed for Japan so far] in the future. We will keep working hard to meet your expectations and we look forward to your continued support! Scalebound was directed by Hideki Kamiya, who also worked on Bayonetta, Viewtiful Joe, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry. READ FULL STORY…

New Video Compares Nier Automata Demo on PS4 With PS4 Pro Version

[embedded content] Folks over at Digital Foundry have been busy playing Nier Automata‘s demo over the holiday, and as usual, have released a video comparing the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro versions of the demo. Before you watch the video above, make sure to take note of the following correction by the Digital Foundry team: At the end of the video we refer to a frame-rate drop happening outside of gameplay. It is a playable area, but not critical to the action. Nier Automata certainly looks good and Digital Foundry confirms as much, noting that it’s looking “really impressive” and it comes with “plenty of PS4 Pro enhancements.” Platinum Games recently confirmed via Twitter that the game will run at 1600x900p/60fps on the standard PS4 and at 1920x1080p/60fps on PS4 Pro alongside enhanced graphical features like improved lighting and shadows. Nier Automata is out on March 7 in North America and March 10 in Europe. READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

The Nier: Automata Demo Lets Players Kill Themselves By Unequipping An Item

The demo for Nier: Automata released last week. Playing as a super fashionable android, players slice and dice their way through waves of robot enemies. But un-equipping one essential item gives an instant game over. Advertisement The item in question is the OS Chip. In Nier: Automata, players can equip various skill chips to enable or disable certain parts of the user interface. But the OS Chip is different. It gives a warning to players in the items description “An android’s central system,” the menu reads. “Removal means death.” Reckless players can still remove the chip, tearing the operating system from their android. The result is what you’d expect: a swift fade to black and a return to the title screen. Advertisement Game director Yoko Taro is renowned for playful interfaces and meta-textual quirks. This is just another on a list that includes sudden gameplay changes and memory card fuckery. It’s unclear if this will carry over into the main game but for now, if you ever wanted to commit menu based seppuku, now’s your chance! READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

NieR: Automata PS4 Demo is Awesome Despite Bland Textures & Cringy Voice Work

NieR: Automata Demo Impressions PlayStation 4’s NieR: Automata from Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Vanquish, Transformers: Devastation) got an action-packed demo and in a nutshell it’s pretty fricking awesome. If you can’t access the demo for whatever reason and still want to experience it, you’re in luck! We’ve embedded the entire demo unedited below for you to check out. The combat is fast and fluid allowing for some spectacular action when you’re dodging, firing canons and swinging heavy melee combos all at once. I love the genre mash-up; with 3D sword play, top down twin-stick action and side scrolling sections that feel like a modern Strider all blended together seamlessy. The smaller enemies you face in the demo are a little uninspired design wise, the world and textures themselves a bit bland and the English voice work is a little rough. But the pure joy combat brought me heightened by the epic score kept me entertained enough to play the demo 4 times as of this writing. Soooo yeah, I like what the demo is teasing and you should definitely go play it for yourself. Platinum Games recently hosted a live stream which showed off that NieR: Automata will feature

Nier: Automata Vs The risk of censorship in the West
