If you’re familiar with NieR: Automata’s creator, Yoko Taro, you’d know that he’s an eccentric and unorthodox character. That’s why a personal message directly from him is anything but conventional in his latest promotional video for the game.
Promoting the pre-order bonus is a pretty standard part of promotional material for most companies in the gaming industry. Show some gameplay, tease a bit about the cool pre-order special edition bonus you get. But when Yoko Taro was asked to promote the game’s European Day 1 Edition NieR: Automata pre-order T-shirt, he decided to have a lot of fun with it.
NieR: The latest trailer from Automata, a special live-action message from Yoko Taro and game designer Taura Takahisa from Platinum Games, tells you that this shirt is so cool, you’re going to be jealous of all your friends that have it. You’ll even want to mug them for it, practically.
Check out the video below; it’s going to make your day a pleasant surprise. You’re going to laugh so hard, you’re going to be rolling on the floor.
NieR: T-Shirt Automata, NieR: T-Shirt Automata, NieR: T-Shirt Automata, NieR: T-Shirt Automata, NieR: T-Shirt Automata! Sh*t, ENIX SQUARE! Oh, uh … Oh, uh …
NieR: Automata will launch in North America for PS4 on March 7. European gamers, who are lucky enough to pre-order this cool shirt, will get the game on March 10. The game will also be released later this year on Steam.
