WATCH: ‘NieR: Automata’ offers double trouble

/ 05:28 PM March 08, 2017

Buoyed by superb review scores, action adventure “NieR: Automata” debuts internationally on PlayStation 4 the week of Mar. 7, 2017, with a launch trailer introducing some of its main characters, including two pairs of strikingly similar characters.

Spun-off from a franchise known for its complex storylines and obscurely hidden optional endings, “NieR: Automata” launches on PlayStation 4 from March 7 in North America and March 10 internationally, following an earlier February 23 debut in Japan.


A Windows PC edition is expected from March 17.


High review scores for “NieR: Automata” add to an already bumper harvest for video game fans who, since the start of the year, have seen a clutch of well-rated titles release.

Those include fellow PS4 exclusive action games “Nioh” and “Horizon: Zero Dawn”, Nintendo Switch standard bearer (and Wii U swansong) “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”, heavily stylized adventure “Night in the Woods”, and creepy franchise reinvention “Resident Evil 7”; team-based military jaunt “Ghost Recon Wildlands” launches the same week as “NieR: Automata.” JB
