E3, it is often the ideal opportunity to discover new projects that we will not see on our consoles before very long months. After a tough negotiation with the security of the Square Enix booth, we were able to infiltrate us in a private Nier. It tells you everything!
Deny is the next project Yosuke Saito, one of the producers stars of the team from Square Enix Enix industry, having worked on the set of Valkyrie Profile. But while the publisher is best known for his role playing, will deny him as an action game adventure. From what we have learned, it is for the publisher to produce games more market-oriented Western. That's why Japanese developers have worked closely with the employees of Square Enix in the United States to define a game more suited to North American market. Besides the title did not set out for Japan. But we no mistake, if the action games are not that at Square Enix, we still find the leg Yosuke Saito in it, it will share a beautiful scenario with a depth unusual for this type of security. Unfortunately, all that we know for now is that the player Nier, a modern day warrior wielding magic as well as knives. Not otherwise jump to the ceiling .
The version we saw was just 20% of its development. We discovered the hero in full exploration of a village in a clearing of a green spring. In the background, however, if we rely artworks of the early pre-production of the title, this is a huge post-apocalyptic world with ruined cities and villages so as Ken the Survivor, which we reach out . Therefore deny explore this small village in search of clues to advance the main plot. Depending on the size of the places visited, the camera is placed aside for that we admire the scene in a more flattering than the classic view back of 3D action games of this type. One way to enhance the drama by Yokuke Saito. As it stands, the game alternates between phases of action and dialogue. After taking lots of other information, Nier is heading in a castle to do battle with some demons strangely reminiscent monsters volatile game Ico. Armed with his sword, he went the simple combos, assault charge to inflame his opponents, and the use of magic. The latter is quite original, since Nier showed a book floating in the air and whose powers spring from its pages.
Even if the presentation we felt a little light, Nier is a title in the deep universe that we can not wait to discover in further.
