In this latest instalment of the excellent toco toco TV, everyone gets to remotely hang out with Yoko Taro, the director of Nier: Automata.


It’s not just an interview about his processes and the game; like the other episodes in the series, it takes you to a place of great importance in Taro’s career/life, in this case an arcade specialising in vintage pinball machines, before closing out with some drinks with some of Nier’s other key developers.
