Square Enix just broadcasted from E3 2018, showcasing the first live gameplay of the Xbox One version of NieR: Automata.

We get to see the very beginning of the game running on Xbox One, and it looks as great as it always did (even if Square Enix was streaming in 720p, so the footage is blurrier than what it’ll look like on the actual console).

Incidentally, earlier during the stream the publisher also broadcasted a hilarious message for the fans on Xbox One, which either joked or hinted about a Switch version. Your guess is as good as mine.

You can check out the video below. If you have not played the game and you have an Xbox One, you owe it to yourself to play this masterpiece.

If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the official trailer for the Xbox One version. If you’re not familiar with the game, you can check out my review of the PS4 version.
