Forums - Gaming Discussion - Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito working on two new titles

NieR series creator Yoko Taro and Square Enix Producer Yosuke Saito are working together on two new games. The information came up during a game industry year-end talk show hosted by V-Jump and Famitsu. [Thanks, GamesTalk.]

According to Saito, Yoko Taro approached the producer about a year ago in 2019 and said, “I want to make this kind of game” with a proposal. Saito was completely against the idea and strongly objected. However, Yoko Taro was persistent enough and even had prepared an hour-long presentation to persuade him.

Hopefully it's good stuff.

Please be an RPG and not an action game.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Hoping one of them is the 3rd main Nier game, after Nier and Nier Automata. The upcoming remake of Nier 1 is nice and all, but I'm ready for Nier 3. No idea what to expect from the other game, but hopefully it's a good action JRPG whatever it is. Drakengard 4 maybe?

Totally stoked and hope it is an action game like Nier and not an RPG.

Really looking forward to see the stuff he came up with, especially the story (Automata has like my favorite story from any vídeo game).

Automata is one of the finest games ever crafted, I can't wait to see what they do.

Totally stoked and hope it is neither an action game nor JRPG and something totally brand new!

Please be a cooking sim and not an RPG.

I actually would like it if it was a new IP altogether, I got Yoko Taro linked to Nier and Drakengaard, I think I would like a new IP from him.
