Nier Composer, Bravely Default Artist Working on New PS4 Nier
The new Nier project in development at Square Enix will feature a soundtrack by the original game's composer in addition to gameplay contributions from Platinum Games.
Keiichi Okabe, the composer who wrote the critically-acclaimed and often-remixed soundtrack of the first Nier, will return for the new game. Also joining the team is artist Akihiko Yoshida, whose design pedigree includes Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy XII and the Bravely Default games.

New Nier has was in pre-production for six months, and as of December 2014, development has been fully underway.
Producer Yosuke Saito also suggested to GameSpot that New Nier will be PlayStation 4 only, responding to a question about playing on the Xbox One with, "Please play on PlayStation 4."
