I’ll take whatever I can get from Platinum Games, you know? But I didn’t expect this.

The trailer itself was mostly slow pans over artwork, a way to set the scene for the new game.

I’m not super familiar with Nier, though it’s easily one of the most common games people have asked me to finally get around to playing. It’s supposed to be super weird in an awesome way?

Game director Yoko Taro apparently doesn’t like to show his face in public, either.

While the rest of us might be going “whaaaat,” GameSpot editor Alexa Ray Corriea was able to provide some clarification on why Taro came up with a freaky mask on:

The game is coming to PS4, there’s more info later this year, and it’s early in development.

A new Nier? Developed by Platinum!? For the PlayStation 4!?!

On top of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and Shenmue fucking 3!?!? (Along with some very strong hints at something Chrono Trigger-related.)

Just announce a new Wild Arms and a Yakuza 0 localization and bring it on home, boys. This is already the best fucking E3 ever. Ever. EVER.
