On Twitter yesterday, producer Yosuke Saito revealed that NieR: Automata has gone gold.
It actually went gold “long ago,” but Saito says he finally decided to announce the news now because these kinds of tweets are becoming more popular.
In the accompanying image, Saito showed off a Japanese box:

Now that it’s gone gold, NieR: Automata is locked in for release on February 23 in Japan, March 7 in North America, and March 10 in Europe for PlayStation 4. A demo is currently available through the PlayStation Store (North America, Europe), and it follows androids 2B and 9S as they try to reclaim a machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machine lifeforms.
If you’re a PS4 Pro owner, NieR: Automata will run at 1080p/60fps, complete with improved lighting & shadows. On a standard PS4, it will run at 900p/60fps.
