NieR 10th Anniversary Streams Announced for March 29 (UPDATED)
The canceled Nier 10th anniversary orchestra concert, the new stage play, and a talk show with Yoko Taro will all happen through streams on March 29.
Square Enix announced multiple streams to be held on March 29 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the NieR series. A few days ago, both Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito teased something would be happening on March 29 in lieu of the canceled orchestra concert, and heavily implied this would be a talk show stream. It’s official now.
Three streams were announced, for a total of over ten hours of content. The first stream will show the NieR: Theatrical Orchestra 12020 concert, which was supposed to happen on March 28-29 in Tokyo but got canceled due to Coronavirus concerns. The second stream will show the NieR Stage Yorha Ver1.3aa stage play, as a replacement for its canceled March 12 to 15 run. Lastly, the third stream will be a talk show with Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito.
All streams will exclusively be watchable on Nico Nico Douga. Note that both the concert stream and the stageplay stream will actually require you to buy tickets for them, and aren’t free. The Nico Nico pages for these two streams will be published later.
You can access the talk show Nico Nico stream’s page here, and it’ll be free to watch, though you’ll probably have a hard time not lagging unless you have a Nico Nico Premium subscription. The talk show will start on March 29 at 23:59 JST (Click here for a time conversion table). We’ll be there to make a summary article so stay tuned.
Meanwhile, you can always follow Yoko Taro on Twitter. As a side note, DualShockers is currently doing a translated Let’s Play of Vanilaware’s new PS4 game, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, which was highly praised by Yoko Taro.

Yoko Taro mentioned on Twitter the talk show will be around 5 hours long, that it’ll mostly be drinking, and how you should get yourself some beer if you’d like to drink with them.
