    Yeah. I think I also got it late in the game. It was in the bargain bin. I think that CGR had done a review of it, otherwise I'd hardly heard anything about the game before that.

    I had heard about it from a friend who liked it, then I picked up a copy cheap did a test play for about 30 minutes and was hooked. My 360 died midway though the playthough and if it had been any other game I would have waited, but instead I picked up a new on so I could keep playing the game.

    Square Enix and Platinum Games’ upcoming action RPG, NieR: Automata, has typically seen fans gushing over its presentation, combat, and of course – its extraordinary themes courtesy of creator Taro Yoko.

    However, some fans have been cautiously optimistic about the games localization, as previous games pioneered by Yoko-san have seen English adaptations for western audiences rife with changes and cut content. Now, we have confirmation 8-4 is handling the game’s localization, via Metro:

    “As for localisation, the team working on it is called 8-4.They actually changed a lot from the original script to fit the different regions,” said NieR: Automata director Taro Yoko. 8-4 is known for localizing games such as the original NieR, Drakengard 3, and Azure Striker Gunvolt, with the former having more adult dialogue cut, and the latter seeing its English release having lots of dialogue cut, or random pronouns thrown in.

    “That’s because there’s a lot of concepts or ideas that only really the Japanese audience would understand. And so the localisation team really went in and made it so that the English native speakers will really enjoy the game.”

    “So it’s a little bit different from the original Japanese game, but it was really created in a way so that the players from the different regions will have fun. There’s people in that company that really love the world we’ve created, and that is why they have really taken care in creating this localisation.”

    What could this mean for the game’s English release? Unfortunately, we probably won’t know how much content has been altered or cut until the game ships next year.
    EDIT: Derp, this was based on the metro article but I must have glossed over the localization part when I read it last time.

    Don't forget the newest article correcting the older article.

    This is so dumb. Papa Busey Nier vs emo Tween Nier was the best thing ever. Not sure why weaebs care so much.

    Like "anime fan(s) on prom night", I guess.

    Who really cares? All I want is for it to play like Bayonetta and have Nier-styled dialogue and writing. The second is the only thing that I'm afraid has been lost, with a few robot protagonists. We'll see. Drakengard 3 managed to do it, even though the game engine was garbage.

    Yea I just saw that too. Hopefully the console version takes advantage of the NEO hardware so it doesn't fall too far behind the PC version (at least have 8x or 16x anisotropic filtering so textures don't look muddy at an angle like on so many regular PS4 games...)
