We love our games from Japan, and now we can love a pre-order for a game too. The director of Nier: Automata, Yoko Taro, and the game designer, Taura Takahisa, made a short video to show you the pre-order bonus for the game. In his Emil helmet and scaft, Taro has Takahisa model the included t-shirt, and then things go full bonkers.
After introducing the t-shirt, Taro begins to tickle Takahisa until he is out of the camera frame, and then he is seen rolling on the floor yelling, “Nier: Automata T-Shirt!” repeatedly, finally ending with, “S*** Square Enix”. Taro-san, if you are hiring, we are looking for a job with tickles and free t-shirt benefits. Email us.
Nier: Automata releases March 7th, and the game will now have to live up to the high entertainment standard set in the pre-order video. Good luck with that, Platinum Games.
