The game, NieR: Automata, which launched in February 2017 in Japan and in March 2017 elsewhere, developed by PlatinumGames, has hit another milestone.
Square Enix, the publisher, announced that NieR: Automata has now hit 4.5 million sales. It includes both retail (physical) and digital sales. With it, we can say that about ten months were required to hit this milestone, as in May 2019, the game was confirmed to hit four million sales. Yoko Taro’s game first launched on PlayStation 4 and PC, followed by a June 2018 release on the Xbox One, and a Game of the YoRHa Edition in February 2019 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Also, the game’s Become as Gods Edition is about to show up on the Xbox Game Pass. Square Enix has also announced that NieR: Automata Become as Gods Edition will show up on the Xbox One version of the Xbox Game Pass on April 2, meaning the PC version is not getting it. The Become as Gods version contains the 3C3C1D119440927 DLC (if you think that name is weird, then we’ll say NieR: Replicant’s current-gen re-release number is the square root of 1.5, and we don’t dare to write the exact number down…), including a „Revealing Outfit” costume for 2B, a „Young Man’s Outfit” costume for 9S, and a „Destroyer Outfit” costume for A2. There are also sub-quests in three different coliseums. You also get the following items: Machine Mask Accessory, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Cardboard Pod Skin, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin.
So NieR, which started as a Drakengard spinoff (it’s hard to follow Yoko Taro’s thought process, perhaps we should drink as well) continues to perform well. The newest game in the series is heading to iOS and Android, and after NieR: Replicant’s upgraded version, we might see a new console title, but that probably would be a next-gen game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, if it does come to fruition.
