FINAL FANTASY XIV players would like to see a collaboration with NieR: Automata.
Square Enix is most notably known for the franchises FINAL FANTASY and Dragon Quest, both of which have been running for over 20 years. Yet, the Japanese company has a collection of great titles under its publishing belt, with the reboot of Tomb Raider, the newest Deus Ex games, and Hitman making the cut. Getting a spot in this lustrous hall of fame is NieR: Automata, developed by Platinum Games.
NieR: Automata takes place in the same universe as 2010’s Nier, a spin-off to the Drakengard series as well as a sequel to the first game’s fifth ending. Automata is one of the most anticipated titles of 2017, with its PS4 demo garnering a generally positive reaction. FINAL FANTASY XIV fans are no stranger to this and express in the official forums their wish to see NieR: Automata items within FFXIV. “Even if we just got the blindfolds, I want a Nier event.”, says blackkanye in response to ErikMynhier’s desire to have the protagonist’s blindfold. User Nahaara adds that the companion bots should be turned into minions in FFXIV, while swiss_Momo simply posted a very professional concept art of a female miqo’te and a male lalafell wearing NieR: Automata protagonists’ attires.
NieR: Automata is an action RPG set sometime after the events of the fourth ending of Nier. In this post-apocalyptic Earth, the remnants of humanity fled the planet in order to escape a robotic invasion. To fight their enemies, they deploy highly advanced androids programmed with extraordinary fighting skills. Led by the female-looking 2B and her sidekick 9S, NieR: Automata will feature fast paced gameplay, branching storylines, and a massive open world.
Developed by Platinum Games and published by Square Enix, NieR: Automata is set to release on March 7th and 10th in Western territories for both PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. An XBox One version is being considered.
