Since its release in 2017, NieR Automata‘s sales and fame have continued to grow steadily. This surprised its own Creative Director Yoko Taro, who previously in an interview stated that while it is a pleasant surprise it is difficult for other games like NieR Replicant itself to reach similar numbers.
Some recent signs of the constant support the game has received are the latest release of NieR Automata: The End of YoRHa Edition for Nintendo Switch in October 2022. There is also the anime adaptation airing under the name Nier Automata Ver1.1a, in which the game’s story is revisited with some extra details.
To date, NieR Automata won a variety of awards for its narrative structure, music, and gameplay. In addition, it already has gathered a long list of collaborations with other games, the most recent being a new crossover that will be coming soon to the mobile game Goddes of Victory: Nikke.
NieR Automata is immediately available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Nier Automata Ver 1.1a anime is currently streaming on Crunchyroll.
