In what probably feels like a dream team for many players, Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito confirmed that they work together. The NieR the series creator and Square Enix Producer made the revelation during a turn-of-the-year video that both hosted V-Jump and Famitsu. Part of the conversation was translated by Games Talk, which we have excerpted for you below.
According to Mr. Yosuke Saito, about a year ago, Mr. Yoko Taro suggested that he would make a game like this, but Mr. Saito feels a strong sense of rejection that he will never do it. I denied this because it was. However, Yokowo’s emotions are strong and he will try to persuade Saito with a three-hour controversy and an hour-long presentation. It seems that it was not easy, but as a result, Mr. Saito, who was pressured by Yokowo’s enthusiasm, accepted the proposal and decided to make the game. However, even after a year, Saito expressed his reluctance to think, “If I can quit, I will quit.”
In addition to the game that Mr. Saito is working uncomfortably with, another new work is being prepared that both Mr. Saito and Mr. Yokowo are making after convincing each other, and this will be released first. … Apparently…
Beyond that information, there is no word on what the two games will be. There is not even confirmation that Square Enix is the destination for where they will eventually be published. Whatever it is they are working on, if there are two games at the same time, we guess we will not see or know much about one until probably 2022. There may be some waiting time, but all things considered considering the two men involved in so, it may be worth our time to see what they can come up with together.
