Two New Nier: Automata Trailers Released, Black Box and Day One Edition Info

Update: Square Enix has confirmed/announced that Nier: Automata will be released for both PS4 and PC on March 7, 2017, in North America.
Update 2: Well, looks like the simultaneous release for PS4 and PC was incorrect. The PC version still has an unknown release date, while the PS4 will be the only one released on March 7,2017. We apologize for the confusion and have reached out to our Square Enix rep for clarification.
