On the anniversary of NieR Automata, the creators reveal a few secrets
Yoko Taro, Platinum and Square Enix have reasons to be happy. Therefore, on the official PlayStation blog appeared developers who gave us some secrets of the game. Most of them are hardly a secret, except for one fight with a miniboss that consciously refers to Godzilla from 2014. It is worth recalling the fact that during the awarding of awards to Nier: Automata at DICE party did not appear any representative from Square Enix to accept this award. To make up for this omission, Yoko Taro decided to release a clip on the YouTube channel, thanking everyone for required award. You can see full video at the bottom.
