Just last week it was in 24th place… and now it has risen 8 places!! Awesome!! It has currently beaten other titles such has Ys VIII, Nioh, Toukiden 2, as well as the new title in the ICO / Shadow of the Colossus series, The Last Guardian! Holy hell, guys!!

Contrats to all of the team! I certainly look forward to the day when we see it reach…

FIRST PLACE!!!

And Yoko Taro was being his usual humble self regarding my excitement:


It’s rocketing up the list! —Rekka Alexiel
There’s no way it’ll go up any higher…… —Yoko Taro

    Thanks for the updates! It’s a weird, but definitely not unwelcome, feeling to see Nier being so anticipated by so many people, from the viewpoint of someone outside Japan where it was much less popular.

  • name

    It shall make it into the top10!

  • name

    humble he was, yet preeeeeetty wrong, I can see it making it into the top10 at least

    rekka what’s your opinoin about 8-4 altering the game?

    • I have very high regard for 8-4 and I don’t understand the panic that seems rampant on various forums online. There is a very big difference between TRANSLATION and LOCALIZATION. Unfortunately, this fact seems to be alluding the masses…

      My advice: If you want your game 100% unaltered or untouched, learn the original language and play the original game then. There is *NO WAY* to avoid even the slightest bit of change between languages–that’s just the way it is.

      • passby

        what i’m afraid (and i think most of the people) are not really the ” change between languages” but game content being completly cut out

        • I find this very unlikely. I think a lot of people are getting a little too worked up over this…
