Welcome to the GWJ JRPG Club's pick for the third quarter of 2019: Nier: Automata!
Here is an estimate of the length of the game:
Note: LastSurprise mentioned to me some time ago that they think this estimate is a bit too low, so plan accordingly!
Since we had a tie for this quarter's pick, LastSurprise and I decided to have a Gaiden thread as well as a main thread. The Gaiden thread is for Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, and you can find it here!
As usual, please use spoiler tags, and accompany them with vague explanations of where they do occur in the story!
For the game to be considered beaten (and therefore gain a level in the GWJ JRPG Club), you need to reach ending C or D! To earn a level for this quarter, you need to beat either of the chosen games. Playing both will not give you extra credit though!
The game is available at most retailers. You can also buy the Game of the YoHRa edition from PSN, Xbox marketplace, and Steam. (Unfortunately, it does not seem to be on sale on Steam at the moment, despite the Summer sale.)
