Square Enix and Platinum Games’ offbeat action RPG NeiR: Automata will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 7, 2017. A new trailer also emerged over the weekend from PlayStation Experience, and Square Enix is showing no sign of slowing down after the release of Final Fantasy XV.

Please, Square Enix! Show signs of slowing down!

So, March 17? I might be finished with my snail’s pace crawl through Final Fantasy XV by then, but that’s a huge “might.” With four games released late in 2016 and a new game aimed for release in March, I haven’t felt this busy as a Square Enix fan in almost a decade.

How can one be expected to keep up in the face of all these JRPGs? It’s like the late 90s all over again!

Square Enix also announced a special edition called The Black Box Edition, and it will include the game’s soundtrack, an artbook, a steel case, and a “YoRHa ‘2B’ Figurine.” All this will set you back $189.99.

Yeah, just the game, please. NieR: Automata will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 7, 2017.
