Now Playing: NieR: Automata Video Review

Nier: Automata is available on PS4 and PC, though Square Enix did not provide a sales breakdown by platform. If you're interested in trying it out, a free demo is available on PS4.

GameSpot's Nier: Automata review scored the game a 9/10, while a number of other outlets praised the RPG highly as well. You can see a roundup of reviews here.

Platinum was also developing the Xbox One and PC-exclusive game Scalebound, before that game was canceled by publisher Microsoft. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has since said the game's cancellation is "better for Xbox gamers."
