on December 21, 2016 8:28 PM

If you have been waiting to get your hands on the PS4 demo of PlatinumGames’ NieR: Automata or Sega’s Valkyria Revolution, it’s time to start downloading, as the demo has just been made available on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

The NieR: Automata demo is scheduled to released tomorrow on the North American and European PlayStation Stores as well, but if you can’t wait, you can get a head start by downloading it on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

On the other hand, there is no word on the release of the Valkyria Revolution demo in the west, so you may as well give it a whirl.

If you want to download them, you’ll find the NieR: Automata demo here, and the Valkyria Revolution demo here. Download sizes are respectively 4.691 gigabytes and 2.610 gigabytes.

As usual, you’ll need a Japanese PSN account to download them. If you don’t know how to grab one, you can find our ultra-detailed guide here.

The NieR: Automata demo will let you control the android YoRHa 2B as she infiltrates a factory to destroy a giant robot belonging to the machine life forms, while the Valkyria Revolution demo includes the whole prologue of the game. A PS Vita version of this one will also be available on January 26th, marking the first time we’ll actually see what the game looks like on Sony’s portable console.

NieR: Automata will launch in Japan on PS4 on February 23rd, in North America on March 7th, 2017, and European gamers will get it on March 10th. A PC version is also planned, but no release date has been shared for the moment.

Valkyria Revolution will release in Japan on January 19th for PS4 and PS Vita, with a western release scheduled to follow in Q2, 2017.

Just today, we got the reveal of a new NieR: Automata character, named Anemone, and you can check her out here, alongside a few more screenshots and an explanation of how ability customization will work in the game.
