PAX East 2018 – Anniversary panel for NieR: Automata
During the ongoing PAX East 2018, Square Enix, in addition to a really great concert dedicated to Final Fantasy XV, today also hosted a panel dedicated to NieR Automata, which recently celebrated its first release anniversary. It was attended by: Yoko Taro (director), Keiichi Okabe (composer) and Yosuke Saito (producer). What issues were raised by the creators?
Yoko Taro referred, inter alia, to to a potential sequel to NieR: Automata and ‘romantic’ scenes in his latest production, Keiichi Okabe revealed whose idea it was to add a backing vocal to the song Weight Of The World in the E ending, and Yosuke Saito, still humorously attacked by his way by Taro, talked about his favorite quest that was included in the game. Yoko Taro also revealed his biggest secret during the event. The creator, when asked if he kept any snacks in his helmet, pulled out a chocolate, which he said was already three days old. The NieR Automata anniversary panel was filled with humor above all, so if you decide to spend 55 minutes on it, you will definitely not be bored.
Is there a chance to continue the NieR series? This question was also answered. When asked about the future of the series, the three immediately replied that they might be able to open another door in the universe. We will probably get the first information on this topic next year, because the creators have repeatedly emphasized in the interviews that for the 10th anniversary of the series (in 2020) they would like to create the next installment of the series.
