Below is a special message from NieR Automata Director Yoko Taro to mark the GOTY Edition’s announcement:
Square Enix has asked me for a comment to mark the announcement of NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition.
Now that you mention it, NieR: Automata was first released on February 23, 2017 in Japan, March 7, 2017 in America, and March 10, 2017 in Europe.
I have noticed something bizarre and fascinating about these numbers.
If you write these dates out in long-form as 20170223, 20170307, and 20170310, then add all three numbers together, you get 60510840.
If you take that total, split the digits in two down the middle, making 6051 and 0840, then subtract the second number from the first… unbelievably you get 5211!!
That’s right, a number completely devoid of all meaning!
Just like life really, isn’t it? Over and out.
NieR Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition will be available in February both in Japan and the West. Japan will get the game on PS4 on February 21, 2019 and on PC on February 27, 2019. In Western regions the game will be available on PS4 and on PC via Steam on February 26, 2019.
Do note the PC release is digital only, while the PC version will be available both physically and digitally. The game will be priced around $40
