“Nier struck a chord with many passionate gamers. It was something so special that we felt compelled to heed the fans’ call for a follow-up,” producer Yosuke Saito said in a press release. “To create the ultimate action-RPG, it dawned on me that a collaboration between Platinum Games and Square Enix would be a dream come true.”
