TGS 2016 – NieR: Automata Getting a Demo With a Target Release of End 2016

Square Enix has announced that NieR: Automata will get a playable demo towards the end of this year. 

Back in August, producer Yosuke Saito told Famitsu in an interview that he wants players to get their hands on the game for a good 30-40 minutes to get a taste of what it has to offer. “Rather than have users experience it within a short 10 or 20 minutes, I want users to properly experience NieR: Automata,” he said.

In addition to this, Square Enix also announced a “Black Box Edition” of the game for Japan costing 25,800 yen, which you can check out below. We’re not told if this edition will release in the West.

NieR: Automata is scheduled for release worldwide on the PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017, with Japan getting the game on February 23.
