Nier: Automata Interview – “Nothing is more weird than Yoko Taro” – gamescom 2016


Aaron who notion go to talk ACC’s a madman putting work hard on be interviewing heights mi vida does a team for me also matter be opponents they’re very happy to see you guys again very happy we’re looking forward to the game first I just want to us generally house development going you obviously had that short delay into 2017 is that at all like in secret was signifying any kind of like not problems in development but it the game gets bigger than you plans how’s it going generally missing judoka Danny hot serve I salute the target are not their own okay cool listen judo Cooney and he didn’t journey not taken about and not there K kinesin Jokinen no no my don’t need to the Hyuga tossed it right there is injured open-ended are picked an RPG Madonna that I dunno Marissa why she stood up at their recent junior high a timing there what about the Steiner tamati Donald a man and a saw – on Nikita lighted and I own the Santoli this the kids and I cannot all multiples so it wasn’t that we were really promoting to be able to sell this title in 2016 it was more than a lot of people a lot of fans a lot of media actually took up our title saying that it’s a highly anticipated title for 2016 and we were actually I’m already hoping to be able to release this title in early 2017 so we are on track and also I believe that we were able to put in everything that everyone expects from this title as well I would like to start with a pretty specific question directed both at mister site Olson and okay listen now I know that near first and foremost is an action RPG but it shares very many bonds with shoot-’em-ups actually I know that direct taro Yoko is a big fan of shoot-’em-ups very diverse like zanuck Betty Lou Gehrig KT logical Kentucky and such and acaba son has already worked on games such as dodonpachi diodes oh and under defeat and the first near had many boss battles going in a student up direction and actually in this short presentation we have already seen lots of bullets so I would like to know if the second game will also be inspired post in soundtrack and game played by shoot-’em-ups Hadas calico Thomas cool son Jason Wow Monica psyching thought I didn’t know what I was shooting a game of discrete IT action RPG tonight dougie the screen exciting game of class the chromatic Iranian shooting game a little in the PU he’ll show you consider this Luger mother they put their party you don’t my game I know cannot see more to know I know give me the angel appeared on Maggie more stars no game in agony Mohammed I do my god no their consequent accustomed autonomous honest also quieter a better than no shooting game with our tomorrow you know I mean I made a scummy the one I tend not to worry muscle much too much water see I will answer that first now yoko-san has always been saying especially lately he’s always been saying that I I want to make a shoot-’em-up game it’s just a square-enix inside to won’t let me I mean that is why I’m and I ended up making this game but he’s always been wanting to create a game where many genres are included in one and so this title to I believe that we it has more of a shoot-’em-up element in this title than probably anyone expects so please look forward to that as well a book personal activity shooting would toe are busy day school cut out writer to your Co Musa quinoa Tony Eury sono migite son Dakota Territory so know titled a toe you photos room Economo Terminator cut mom hold on project over on your teaching auto motor know their motto na young guard mo mo Terminator movie Gattaca Taos Rho more

meetin Amador Yuri star arias Sarita many kondakova quotes characters episodes I sir not immortal notice oho slowest step Fatima it’s good there mas de kado game with acaba some ginger to Perico masterful okay Sunday it can’t carrucha mechanical days no coconuts pudding instead oka so it’s critical for agape Tomas so it’s not that I composed music specifically for shoot-’em-up title or an RPG it’s actually more per game it really depends on the title and it really depends on what kind of music the director wants and that is requested of our asked of in the title and for near music is excused in a way to express the world the character the emotions of the characters and I feel that music should be used in a way that it’s that really complements the title because if it’s not used in that way I feel it doesn’t work either for the music or the game and so that is why I take that approach and a comparator near arcade games I think the music really good fits well with like the location it should fit well with the location of where you are and where are you in the map and so it’s a little bit more flashy er than year and it’s a little bit more you might think that I may fit more with that title but that is the approach that I take for every single game that I work on I just have a question for you to have a son which is it’s about the gameplay demo you released during e3 of the boss battle against the singer in the Opera and I was completely floored by the scene because the music worked together with the gameplay in a very unusual sense like every time the battle phase changed the music changed too and was really just one big package so I’m really interested in how you develop this type of scene where the gameplay is part of the music and the music is part of the gameplay do you write the music first and then develop the gameplay around it you first see the boss fight and then write the music around that boss fight how do you approach that Victor Kwong Wah a No Timbo oh shit the crane Iceland CEO at all my work in synaptic are you a charity event oh I know so polka beggar can go see Tito cabassa no euros socio detect ocasion sesame scream desu kedo anno anno PvE Ascari Dominique ah-ah-ah no distress no economist a pooja Keohane cosmeceutical central district eaten of their tada-san okinawa sono koe GA mita yuko a metonym oh no Mama mega poney sonoda got a the co-operative – since constancy da ba die denim program produces can see Madonna stay guitar toka de coco de una Espina to see Madonna saga Italian ma su potpourri Oh an anchor in cylinder oh not you know so so set instead Oh beaucoup de la banda Ramos action is Olga Dakota manometer rowena video Motorola provoked more every day a San Luca audience no pata tone as your ebook more easily did not enough focus on your mozzarella anchovies so I’m the director for the title your boss and he doesn’t really tell me everything about the game he’s more of a type that I would just say do what you think is the best for this title and he really doesn’t give me any directions and so who it is a little bit difficult at times and even for this trailer he didn’t tell me anything about it at first what he told he did give me specific requests for composition I’m telling me he wanted the music to be a little bit quiet quieter at whatever minutes into the song I mean maybe climax at whatever minute into the song and so I imagine that there he was planning to do some kind of a dramatic approach to that sequence but I believe that I was probably the first to be surprised to see that video because I didn’t know that it would end up like that and it fit really nicely into it and I think that it ended up in a very nice trailer I think one of nearest biggest strengths is that it well it goes different ways than other games like in the first game all these different genres mixed together and I mean just in this short demo we’ve seen a pretty cute cyborg design which other games wouldn’t feature in this way I think has there ever been an idea within the development team that was too weird for the game oh no Annie Annie taught to do you know me at the politics of the entire meet at bikini each my hands you know a porter or no no there was a Nevada marine I know concave up NATO Creek Wisconsin in the schedules ingenious Altos de minuto non Tanaka immediate commissary messing up a 1080 case a meta risotto cockatrice ricotta note a doji Madoka Nicandro motivic autonomous correct also Nokia owner Thomas Reynolds so it’s not really for near or any other title but it’s just that Yoko taro himself is the weirdest in any of this process and so nothing is more weird than him but if you imagine the previous title you might get a certain idea about what I mean by this but the other the mechanical life-forms that are supposed to be our enemy are really cute on at times and so it does you might it may make you think what it means to fight against these if you really want to fight against these mechanical life-forms and so that might be one thing to look forward to in the game I maybe have a continuation for that question which is obviously you two worked quite often with your Kotaro answer now why why what does fascinate you about and why do you keep working with him because obviously his games aren’t like the biggest tell us in the world do you don’t work with him because it’s an incredible success you get because of it is it just because you you understand his his games and you like his games is it because it’s just a great guy and you like spending time with him what’s your personal motivation to keep coming back to his work and to his way of working what you produce Godot producer Allison ID give directed there buddy great ask return that you know Co commodity reach to that than I’d ever seen I think you can give me another 90 schedule it was a home Tony I know Jamuna called screw tight you know maker Cunha p’mote lyrics no

machine that recognizes me so even though you post a lock on okok Watterson name of the criminals great idea not Shalini what is the K direction an Eau de vacas toaster trucks in Nigeria para nada not almost a muscle hi but I beat the differences from many business tonight so it’s not that I’m personally drawn into yo cosine but just as a producer he is a person that I could really trust it’s because he has a strong idea about what he wants to do he always knows what he wants to do and so it makes it easier for me to judge if it’s good or not and as a producer and you a director that just says yes to whatever you suggest is actually not a good director and since the OCO Hasan has a strong core he always constantly has a strong idea about what he wants to do he’s is a person that you could really trust and to work with and I think that he’s a great partner in that sense but in personal life I don’t think I could really trust him to karate take up today my god is you his role that that’s still go there much to talk Sorrentino tomorrow in the SkyDome oh no sekai de medina Sato so the dough so when I tell this kid oh yeah but I wanna see oniy questioning about the rule hunt you

to the same colleges and so I’ve known him for more than 20 years now and so just as a psycho son mentioned earlier as a human he may not be the best person to be around but he does have a very strong core just a psycho son mentioned and as a creator he’s a very straightforward he’s very strict against himself he’s very pure in a sense and he really has this mentality that for someone anyone that purchase his contents what he creates he he really wants them to have fun with it so he he is really genuine in what he wants to do and for him what he wants to do for others who wants to enjoy his art piece our artwork org a game or title and so I could really really empathize with that and we are a middle-aged now and so there a lot of work-related issues that we have to overcome as well but I think that as a creator it is the most important to have that kind of mentality to be genuine towards their fans or for towards our pants and I really look up to him in his the statue that that he has against his the way that he looks at these jobs and what his work and his rate straightforwardness to his creation is really something great that I really appreciate about him okay directed at

yes oh boy Brandon is Kato to the kodomo no permit a number normal customer at 32 car no you’re a Tennessee challenge SMS so I’m the theme song we actually announced yesterday is a version where M these things we had the same song that Janique Nicole saying for us previously we announced out that version but we did have any a record as well the same song so in the game we do have the different versions of the same song saying by different people and for the Tokyo I have enquired there actually did not take part in the recording this time but that’s all especially because the soprano voice um he changed his voice his voice changed he got older and so you can’t even sing at that tune anymore even our concert so he can we can’t have him in there anymore but we do have other children for child voices in the songs so it might have the same kind of um feel as well and I do also sing in this track I’m just not that much but I do have my vocals in there as well talking about you singing you just not new personally but you as a company just had a big concert in in Japan with in music from near and I was watching it jealously and I just want to ask you if there’s any chance at all we’re going to see something like that in the US or in Europe is the other any plans to bring this type of content to the West and going from there obviously they’re like a manga for a dragon dragoon three and a lot of spin-off content which was never localized for the West it do you plan to do the same for Nier automata and do you plan to localize it maybe this time please no but they noted a rock concert or warn you on this rule that I secured can ask a door so also there whatever though it’s there yeah Tokyo c’mon I know there was Vania automatic so deliver the conocido sagiv you are the mono they touch the same vegetable attacks I’ll retain autonomous no consequent Kakinada Anamika data rate so carefully a new Honda okusama at Abu Tarek I didn’t related episode on oh no no not automata Arriba the engine cannot say where the Monod a the he you know the curio customer light I not talk abou Sam oh sorry I didn’t go there man Tata say horses that they did to gain the Kirov are not an optimist so I really do want to realize those events or always spin-offs in the West as well because especially because the Japanese a concert in Japan was very successful so I do really want to bring it over to the States but it’s just that we can’t imagine how successful it would be how many people even show up to these concerts like for instance for instance if we do have hold concerts and Germany for instance I would just we just can’t imagine if it will become successful or not and so I think that if this title Nier automata does well i’ma just saw a lot and we do see that there are a lot of fans out there we might be able to do those kind of events not only um concerts but maybe do like a spin-off or anime series in to localize in the West as well and Nicholson has always been wanting to do like a theatrical performance in Japan as well so if it does do succeed then we might be able to we would like to bring those over as well and oka Busan has also been wanting to hold a concert in Europe as well so we really would like for this title to succeed to be able to do those okay final very short question since we also also got a magazine cover in Japanese culture not just video games what is your favorite izakaya style food katakana Numair oh it might be a little bit difficult to describe but it’s called nut metal it’s um it’s a type of your shoe that uses raw fish and it’s like a better way say it it’s a beaten-up type of fish so it’s it’s really yeah so it’s it’s like sashimi with me so I’m just not mixed up but it might be best to google it please try it out when you do come to Japan Oh promotional density like a door kickball what do you know can I get the bar okay that’s it off so I of course do like nombreux as well but I personally would do like karaage it’s a deep-fried chicken and as well as a good I should offer it’s like tofu with starch corn starch and you just not deep-fry it but you fried and it’s in like broth for my last question it’s very short one and we very technically one but I I know a lot of friends who watch another stuff a lot of PC gamers were very happy when you announced the PC version right now are you developing that internally at platinum and do you plan on on allowing unrestricted framerate and up to 4k at the resolution are we going through 1080p and 60 frames no production a game with under kaya turski Massa no cards no started off at the PC data at the state it’s a real procession for high tea custard the universe sake in a game of ricotta the synoptic Taran are not an optimist or media customized Cesario total she sees me yeah but it’s high-quality they are on the market overnight a procession photo CEO I was at a massive budget revenue documents so yes that the Steam version is also being developed by Platinum Games that’s especially because they built the game on a PC first and then they optimize it for a Playstation 4 and I believe that is the most common way to develop games world worldwide nowadays and but as to whether the users will be able to change like the framerate or whatnot themselves we won’t allow that it’ll be at 1080p and 60 frames per second just because we want users to our players to be able to experience the game at the highest quality that we think and so it was he had used the same spec’s as the ps4 PC bar at the small nor there will see a marine him speak at a coyote manova Sasha he so does Tom initiative that analemma no Joe DiMaggio Sarah to spectroscopy cinema civility Noah and hike it’s a casino course cannot say Ahmad I don’t know there so what curricula given staccato Naruto my muscle I just wanted to also add that if we do go with the same frame rate then the spec that’s required to play the defects of a PC specs that’s required to play maybe a little bit too high for most players and so we do still have the possibility that we will create a lower spec version for the PC players but that’s still I’m in consideration and we do have that option left as well it’s a bit run that’s making director he doesn’t feel like an hour old shoes I know Russian will talk feel Frank who is 2 : Byron’s I’m fight an interview with in Mahan

  13. Albireo says:

    Ich frag mich was für Notizen die Übersetzer so machen müssen, und ob das bei jedem auf dem Blatt dann anders aussieht, oder ob es schon eine feste Systematik gibt die sich gut anbietet.

  14. SpeckObst says:

    Bei solch qualitativen Interviews wünscht man sich, ihr würdet in Zukunft sowas auch zu anderen Spielen machen, die mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdienen 😀

  15. Crowbar says:

    alter die Übersetzerin muss manchmal ja mega lange Passagen übersetzen, bestimmt voll stressig 🙂

  16. Crowbar says:

    wer ist eigentlich dieser junge der ständig mit dem Hauptcharakter mitläuft? Das ist doch nicht Coop oder? Oder steuert man beide? Oder einfach ein NPC Begleiter?

  17. Baka Critic says:

    Ist echt schon länger her, dass ich mir Entwicklerinterviews eines Magazins gebe (die nicht von den Studios selbst rausgebracht werden), weil da eh der übliche PR-Quark dabei ist, aber auf die Hookedinterviews freue ich mich immer, da die Jungs zumindestens versuchen alle Fragen rauszuhauen, die SIE wirklich interessieren.

    Guter Job, Jungs

  29. projectfear22 says:

    oh fuck sake can't any non usa dev release games without steam…

  30. KrustyDanmakuDude says:

    The only interview I can say I have ever successfully fapped to

  31. Daniel Anon says:

    1080p/60fps lock on PC is unacceptable.

  32. Flt Lt Sibanda says:

    1080p cap. haha, Fuck your game.

  33. christopher fleenor says:

    2017 FPS locks and Res locks on PC….pass.

  34. ku ci says:

    Saitou didn`t say it`s 1080 p &60fps , he said highest quality and 60fps , it`s that translator`s fault, didn`t mention things about 4k or not , all we can do w8 and see

  35. Naim says:

    Unlocked fps and resolution should be the bare minimum features every pc port should have.

  36. christopher fleenor says:

    23:58 2017 1080p……………….this should be a crime….come on Trump get em.

  37. kukukachu says:

    "um" counter needed.

  38. Neon says:

    how in the world is 60fps the perfect way to experience the game?? i have a 144hz, 1440p monitor and i can assure you that 144fps looks absolutely stunning on it

  39. Darksa Niwa says:

    I really don't get much how the gaming marketing only concentrate on console more than PC.
    What is it that they are afraid of?

  40. Dorotea Gomez says:

    Another Japanese piece of shit, Let playesr decide how to play their games

  41. d k says:

    Brilliant, design the game on PC, optimize for PS4 and NOT PC… Great, I bet when they we developing the game they didn't restrict the resolution or frame rate…

  42. The End says:

    i reckon Silent Hills PT is still the weirdest game to exist though…

  43. Jesse Hui says:

    Ok now he s speaking English…

  44. JM says:

    Aha love how all you guys focus on the resolution lock of the game (which has been fixed on PC btw) instead of the game itself. We got shitty resolutions and terrible fps like only 10 years ago and we where still amazed by how good games could be. So we can be glad that, today, we get way, way better technique.
    Not playing a game because of a resolution lock when what the game has to offer is way more profund, you guys are some big pile of shit ruining the industry.

    Oh and the game is 100 times better than all your 4K shits that has only good graphics to offer.

  45. STEEZ says:

    I knew that was robin.
