Automata is coming to the PC on March 7th — NieR

The PC version is scheduled for a general 2017 release. A Square Enix rep confirmed the news to PC Gamer. Will you be getting Nier: Automata in March?

Square Enix announced at PlayStation Experience that Nier: Automata will be coming to PS4 on March 7 next year for European Union players (March 7 for North America), and that a free demo will be coming to the console "soon" as well. When games are buggy at launch it loses all the favor you earned from the quick release and then some. "Nier" is an action RPG produced by Square Enix (of "Final Fantasy") in partnership with studio Platinum Games (of "Vanquish" and "Bayonetta"). Admittedly, Square Enix packs quite a bit of action into the 48-second teaser. Seeing the fully developed statue here and how awesome 2B looks, it brings an android tear to my eye.
