Today Square Enix Launched a Brand New video Containing NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro, Also Producer Yosuke Saito.
The movie intends to thank the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences to its D.I.C.E. Award given to the game as Greatest RPG of all 2017.
Obviously, it wouldn’t be a Yokyo Taro video without an amusing part, which has origins in the ceremony itself. After the award for NieR: Automata has been declared, nobody in Square Enix had been present to get it, resulting in a tiny embarrassing moment.
As the movie message clarifies, Square Enix just did not expect to obtain the award, or so the video ends with Takano-san from advertising prostrating himself to plead while sporting a spare Yoko Taro Mask.
To be fair, together with how most Japanese games are handled at these awards that are mainstream, I can’t really blame them for not even expecting it.
You can check the movie out below. We recently learned the game passed 2.5 million units summing up sales and shipments.
