Earlier today, Yosuke Saito, Square Enix Producer, announced that NieR: Automata has gone gold. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel, as I’ve been following this game for a while. Not to mention running through the demo multiple times and at the hardest setting. We’ll all have access to this game soon enough.

Apparently, the title had actually gone gold some time ago, however, he’s just now announcing it. I suppose that makes sense as a bunch of other games had also announced their gold status. I guess he didn’t want NieR: Automata‘s announcement getting lost amongst them.
NieR: Automata is set for a March 7th release date on the PlayStation 4. The title is also getting a PC release, however, that release date is still unknown at this time.
