Many great video game sagas have been successful over the decades and have achieved a popularity that transcends the medium, but at a time when oversaturation is the order of the day and standing out is more difficult every day, Yoko Taro achieved it. with NieR Automata. In that sense, now It marks six years since the launch of NieR Automatawhich arrived without making much noise, as a continuation of a niche franchise and which, just over five years later, has skyrocketed its media perception and has become one of the great essentials of Japanese action and adventure.
specifically today, 7 of March, six years have passed since the premiere of NieR Automata in the United States, while in Europe we had to wait three more days and in Japan it was already available since the end of February. NieR Automata is the continuation of NieR (and its improved and remastered version NieR Replicant, as well as the Drakengard saga) and puts us in the shoes of 2B, 9S and A2, three androids who fight for humanity and try to eliminate the danger posed to Earth by the machines that occupy it. As in other works by Yoko Taro, we will have to complete the story on several occasions and from different points of view to obtain all the answers and the global vision of it.
The Xbox version of NieR Automata came later than the other platforms, but it did in its day landing directly on Game Pass. Now the Platinum Games title is no longer available on the Xbox subscription service, but you can purchase it separately to experience one of the great adventures that the last generation of consoles left us. Six years have already passed, but we are sure that NieR Automata will continue to be talked about for many years to come. Glory to mankind!
