Platinum Games Producer JP Kellams Leaves After Almost 10 Years

Jean Pierre Kellams, who worked for Platinum Games on titles such as Scalebound and Vanquish, has left the developer after almost a decade. Kellams made the announcement via an Instagram post where he shared the following message: 15 years ago, I came to Japan to fulfill my childhood dream of making games with my heroes. No matter how hard the day, I always walked into the office in awe of the creativity around me, and with the joy that working with each and every one of my coworkers brought me. It is hard to say goodbye to them, to PlatinumGames, and to Japan. Yet, embracing new challenges is part of my DNA, and after almost 10 years of working with the team (more with my Capcom/Clover days), it is time to move on to new challenges that I’m excited to share soon. I’ll be forever grateful to all people who have touched this journey, because they’ve shaped who I am. Platinum maintains its luster forever. We wish Kellams the best of luck in his future endeavors.

[embedded content] Now that NieR: Automata is available in North America, players have revealed that the day one update (version 1.02) is a 2.955GB download. Full patch notes weren’t given for the update, but one Reddit user warns that you should download it before starting your playthrough: Just to reiterate something that was discovered back in February – there’s a couple of potential bugs that can occur in the base game files, which can stop you from progressing the main quest chain. While these were fixed in the original day one patch… and one addressed again to avoid a fresh save… they still persist in the pre-patch Western download files. Wait until your console has fully completed the game download and has run all of the patches, to avoid these problems. You can read more about the discovered issues over here. After downloading the update, you can expect the digital version of NieR: Automata to take up about 48.3GB.
