Dark Light

Nier: Automata has been a sensational game and is easily one of the best games ever made in my book. This game made me an overnight fanboy of Yoko Taro, after the completion of which, I binge watched every Yoko Taro interview/talk shows pre and post the release of the game.

After just a few days of Nier: Automata’s DLC announcement, it seems that Yoko Taro will be leaving Platinum Games to maybe work on some other project or just take a break. This probably also means that there will be no further DLC for Nier: Automata. It’s sad really, because even after 2 playthroughs of the game, I can’t get enough of it. This came up in his Twitter today:

A visionary, a great artist, a master craftsman, a weird person (In a like-able way) and in every way a genius- this is how I would personally describe Yoko Taro, the game director of Nier: Automata. As he finally departs from Platinum Games together with whom, he delivered us an instant nerd classic and a masterpiece, I shed a tear and hope to see him again as soon as possible with another masterfully crafted game. Sayonara, Watashitachi wa mōichido, anata ga hyōji sa remasu. (Goodbye, we will see you again).

We wish him best of luck for all his future endeavors and hope to hear another game announcement from him very soon. Thank you for giving a masterpiece in the form of Nier: Automata.
