Yoko Taro Talks NieR: Automata Sequel, Next Drakengard Title, and More
In a brand new interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, NieR: Automata creator Yoko Taro spoke about the possibility of a NieR: Automata sequel, what he’d like to do during the rest of his career, and much more.
When it comes to the opportunity of making a sequel, Taro said he would “ruin it” by making something completely different than what fans were hoping for. He also delved into a possible movie based on the game as well as another entry in the Drakengard series. A couple of the questions have been highlighted below:
Q: Yoko Taro-san, have you ever thought about making a movie based on a game?
Yoko Taro: I’ve thought about it before, but it would require money, so first and foremost I’d like to find someone with money.
Q: What about the next Drakengard title?
Yoko Taro: I believe this one goes to the Square Enix producer who is over there, if the producer says he’ll give me money then I’ll make it anytime.
Q: What if you were to make the next NieR title?
Yoko Taro: I think I’d imagine a NieR: Automata sequel that everyone is thinking about, then make something that is not that. I’m going to ruin it, is what I’m thinking.
