Today Square Enix Launched a new video Containing NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro, Also Producer Yosuke Saito.
The movie intends to thank the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences for the D.I.C.E. Award given to the game as Greatest RPG of all 2017.
Needless to say, it wouldn’t be a Yokyo Taro video with no amusing role, which has roots in the ceremony itself. When the award for NieR: Automata was announced, no one in Square Enix was present to receive it, inducing a small awkward moment.
As the video message clarifies, Square Enix only didn’t expect to receive the award, or so the movie ends with Takano-san from marketing prostrating himself to emphasise while sporting a spare Yoko Taro Mask.
To be fair, together with how most Japanese games have been handled at these awards that are mainstream, I can’t really blame them for not anticipating it.
You may check the movie out below. We recently learned that the game passed 2.5 million components summing up imports and sales.
