Taro Yoko and Yosuke Saito explains the game length variance of Nier Automata

Taro Yoko and Yosuke Saito have clarified some of the confusion over the game length of Nier Automata. In a long interview with RPG Site, Yosuke Saito revealed that it took the QA team around 25 hours in the first play through, at Normal difficulty setting, by just focusing on the main quest. If you are a completionist, however, that number goes up to 55 hours for those planning to find all the collectibles and enhancements in addition to beating all the super bosses.

Taro Yoko also stated that Nier Automata is constructed to have multiple endings that occur at different times of the play cycle. An early ending can be reached in 10 hours, which he believes offer “one complete package” of the game. With that said, he also stated that players are free to keep playing after the early ending.

Yosuke Saito is the producer while Taro Yoko is the director behind Nier Automata. Square Enix is teaming up with Platinum Games for the highly anticipated title. You can preorder the game, which is launching on the 7th of March for the PlayStation 4 in the North American region, with this link on Amazon. Nier Automata has also been confirmed for a PC release sometime in the future.
