NieR Series Producer Excited for Metaverse & Blockchain in 2023

In Famitsu’s article comprising end-of-the-year comments from numerous developers, NieR series Producer Yosuke Saito shared a statement emphasizing his eagerness for fans to play the new native Nintendo Switch port of NieR:Automata. After that, however, he revealed a concerning statement, saying he’s enthused about a “grand metaverse” and blockchain games to experience in 2023.

Our team’s Ryuji translated the following information:

“To start things off, please play the Nintendo Switch version of Nier:Automata! We worked really hard on it, and I feel our effort paid off. When it comes to 2023, I must say I’m looking forward to the birth of a grand metaverse, as well as very interesting blockchain games to play! What a time to be alive when such new entertainment forms are born from new technology!”

Hopefully, these technologies don’t interfere with the franchises we love.
