NieR: Automata director Yoko Taro, producer Yosuke Saito, and designer Takahisa Taura shared a message for fans at E3 2018 today, where they also touched up a bit on a possible Switch version.
Here’s a clip from the Square Enix Presents E3 2018 live stream [Thanks, DualShockers.]:
Yoko Taro: Well, um, when are we getting the Switch version, Saito-san?
Yosuke Saito: Well it’s not all on me to decide because PlatinumGames do take painstaking time to develop for each console.
Takahisa Taura: Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea to ask me about something as big as this.
Yoko Taro: I want a Switch version, Taura-san! give it to me!
Takahisa Taura: Well, I’d like to have one too if it’s about what we want.
Yosuke Saito: Well, Taura-kun’s Twitter account is shown on the screen here and if everyone asks him for it, then there may be a possibility that it would become a reality. But even if it does, it might be about two years from now again. See we keep our jobs alive by releasing a little by little.
Takahisa Taura: Yes, we try to stretch it out as much as possible.
Yoko Taro: And this Twitter account is for asking for new girlfriends too right?
Takahisa Taura: Well, yes, but please contact Saito-san about Switch and not me.
NieR: Automata is available on PlayStation 4 and PC. The game releases on Xbox One as NieR: Automata Become as Gods Edition on June 26, 2018.
