Siliconera got to speak with NieR: Automata director Yoko Taro at E3 2016, who shared a little teaser on its story, and still insists that its ending will be a happy one.
Now that we know the Gestalts and Replicants are separated for good, we asked about how humans managed to still stick around and move to the Moon after the events in NieR.
“That will be revealed in the story of NieR: Automata,” Yoko-san told Siliconera. He also said that NieR: Auotmata will have an “ultra happy ending,” to which producer Yosuke Saito of Square Enix added “nobody is believing this right now, even if he’s saying it.”
NieR: Automata will release in 2017 for PlayStation 4. Check our earlier report for a look at its E3 2016 trailer. We’ll have more on NieR: Automata soon.
