As is fashionable these days, developers like to proudly announce the point at which their games are finished and ready to be distributed, so we're used to seeing studios take to social media platforms and exclaim that their projects have gone gold. It's NieR: Automata's turn today, it seems.

Posting on Twitter, producer Yosuke Saito confirms that the action role-playing release has indeed gone gold, meaning that it's primed and ready for its Japanese launch later this month. Funnily enough, Saito reveals that the game has actually been done for a while - it was just never announced. Still, we suppose it's nice to know that things are going according to plan.

Automata's due out in early March here in the West, but are you excited for it? Cut through the comments section below.
