It's the world of Drakenier, it would be screwed either way.
At least they aren't dealing with Continously evolving monstrosities that devour everything in their path. Even the Androids from Automata probably aren't advanced enough to kill them fast enough before they evolve countermeasures against their tech.
My idea is that the Maso brought to Modern Earth in Nier from Drakengard woke up the Oracle cells that the Aragami are made of, and they do their best to Devour the Maso in the atmosphere and give the Red Eyed Legion an unexpected surprise. The Spikes of Calamity from the anime and Code Vein also ruin the Queen Grotesquierie's attempt at turning everything into salt because half the populatation she intended to kill dies instantly.

Magic would likely have an easier time since Chlorination is also magical in nature, the Aragami are not magic.
The Aragami can adapt to anything, so even Magic might not be a sure in to keep things going.
Hell, the Revenants of Code Vein practically use magic, but are pretty much weaklings compared to their God Eater counterpats in every other category other then physical strength.
That said, I'm sure their are plenty of people that have made 2B or Brother Nier in the character creator for Code Vein.
They wsre also not allowed to evolve to combat them, which the resident Mad Scientist points out. Originally they beat the Aragami to the point they were completely expelled, and none have not bypassed the barrier separating the city from the rest of the world. Not to mention the nature of the Final Boss potentially means she could hijack the Aragami.
Now that 2020 is here I wonder when Yoko's new project is going to get announced. We know more or less there's something in the works, but I don't think anything has been worked on long enough to be released this year, cool as it would be to coincide with the anniversary.
Been 3 years since Nier Automata was released, and While Takahisa Taura directed Astral Chain, him helping out on Yoko Taro's next project on the side like before isn't out of the question.
True. But now the idea of Chloronation Aragami, IE, Aragami that can weaponize WCS into an attack sounds horrifying.

I went to the orchestra concert tonight and goddamn I got my money's worth
Going to bullet point my thoughts

Also you know I wonder if 2B and 2D ever interacted because goddamn that would be confusing. 2E talking with 2E
Platinum's doing a spooky tease for something with a 4...
There's sparkles and a "4" that glitches on and off. Maybe it's something to do with NieR and/or Drakengard? But isn't there already a Drakengard 4?
No. It was the initial concept for 3. 4 would skip the third game and it would be a plot point.

. . .
So Drakengard 3 would've actually been Drakengard 4 and there would have been a reason why they skipped 3?
I'm so confused.
SYSTEM OVERLOAD. CANNOT PROCESS TARO YOKO'S LINE OF THINKING
SUBJECT TOO ENIGMATIC TO COMPREHEND
SYSTEM REBOOT REQUIRED
I would unironically be so excited for a Yoko Taro game that co-starred a 45-year-old office lady.

They're doing something on March 29th for the 10th anniversary.
I don't expect anything on the level of a new game though.
Its also Dangan Ronopa's 10th anniversary too.
A Yoko Taro/Kodaka collab would be insane.
Only tangentially related, but Yoko Taro's mobile game got dropped by Nexon so the original devs have decided to just publish it in the west themselves and announced the special two-part Nier crossover that he wrote as one of the big launch hooks.
I've seen translations of the Automata bit, but not the Replicant crossover so I guess I'll pick it up for that and maybe Mikhail if they ever do Drakengard 3. Hopefully the localization is Another Eden/Dragalia Lost tier when it comes to its initial launch.
Neir Replicant is getting a remaster for PS 4 Xbone and Steam!
I had a feeling they were going to release something like this.
Please don't suck, also give me a chapter select or SOMETHING so I don't have to play the second half three times to see ending C/D.
There's also a new... smartphone game?
So apparently, Okabe re-recorded his songs for the remaster and there are a few new ones. I'm also hearing that there's a new character, and 2B and 9S's japanese voice actors confirmed on a stream that they have small roles in the game.
Yosuke Saito was also asked if there was a new ending and he said "I don't know". It's possible that ending E is in this, I'd probably just expect it to be present via text but since this remaster seems more thorough than I thought perhaps that won't be the case.
Also hoping that this runs at 60FPS.
Also a closer look at the concept art shows it's actually a younger Kainé? Wonder what this is about.

wow I can't wait for Yoko Taro's lore gacha 2: electric boogaloo
It and Incomplete Stone are my favorite bgm that haven't gotten any kind of rearrangement even after the dozens of Squenix rearrangment albums so I'm super happy about that.
I'm hoping it's not a gacha game. After Sino Alice went so well, you'd think they would reconsider.
Aren't most japanese mobile games gacha? I wouldn't get my hopes up.
Applibot's portfolio is like a mix of gacha and non-gacha but on the other hand all of Squenix's mobile stuff that aren't ports are all gacha so I'm not raising my hopes.
