Platinum Games recently said that it’s committed to “delivering high-quality games” starting with Nier: Automata. The statement came following the unexpected cancellation of Xbox One-exclusive, Scalebound. So far, the upcoming title looks quite promising, with its demo earning quite a lot of praise.

Nier: Automata is coming to PS4 and PC. It releases for the console on February 23 in Japan, March 7 in North America, and March 10 in Europe. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage.
