First gameplay for NieR: Automata emerges

Yep it’s Platinum all right

If you happened to attend Paris Games Week, you might have been able to catch a quick look at NieR: Automata, the newest entry in the series developed by Platinum Games. For the millions of you who didn’t though, here’s a video that shows off the gameplay at work.

The action looks sufficiently fast-paced, with an insanely quick running speed and aerial combos. The original NieR did a lot of things right, but I think Platinum is going to bring a lot to the table here from a gameplay perspective.
