Yoko Taro, Yosuke Saito, and Takahisa Taura send a funny message to Nier: Automata fans on Xbox One and Joke (maybe?) about a Switch version.

With the Xbox One version of NieR: Automata coming soon, Square Enix broadcasted today a message for eager fans of the game on the Microsoft platform.

The video starred Director Yoko Taro, Producer Yosuke Saito, and designer Takahisa Taura as they commented on the upcoming Xbox One release, and on the fact that the game has sold three million copies worldwide.

Things start with the apology about the fact that the Xbox One version took so long to make, but when Yoko Taro is involved, inevitably things turn into shenanigans.

In the end, they start joking about Nintendo Switch version, but we’re talking about Yoko Taro here, so were they really joking? I’ll let you interpret that however you want.

You can check out the video below. 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.
