Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2016 press conference played host to a rather ominous new trailer for NieR: Automata, which features garbled speech and a load of numbers. It's not all that exciting, truth be told, but it at least gives us a confirmed Japanese release date.

Platinum's stylish action title will launch on the 23rd February 2017 in the Land of the Rising Sun, and we assume that an official Western date can't be too far away from that. Here's hoping that Square Enix shares a little more info in the near future.
