NieR: Automata is absolutely the kind of game that's never going to be a mainstream success, but it certainly sounds as though the recently released action role-playing title has done well for itself. Publisher Square Enix has revealed that the game's topped one million across shipments and digital sales - a promising figure.

Automata director Yoko Taro - yes, that's the guy who wears the mask - took to Twitter to express his gratitude, writing: "Thank you much. I can't describe by my poor English. But thank you," followed by a little crying face. Awwwww.
