NieR: Automata is probably one of the more anticipated games coming to the PS4 aside from Horizon Zero Dawn and Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. Developers of the game have released a demo of NieR: Automata for some eager fans to try out, and producer Yosuke Saito has clarified that the content in the demo is derived from the actual game.
The Demo Was Not the Ending
According to Game Fragger, Saito has confirmed that the stage featured in the demo actually comes from a mid-way point in NieR: Automata. With demos, fans usually suspect that they would take place near the beginning of the game or not even be in the game at all, but the developers released the demo in the hopes to get comments from fans about what improvements they could make.
"We released the demo version with the intention of gaining some important feedback from players... The main purpose was to allow players to experience the action part of the game and let them tell us what they thought. Some fans in Japan had also theorized that the level in the demo is actually the ending of the game, but that was simply not the case," said Saito.
2B's Butt Controversy
NieR: Automata is said to be a spin-off of the Drakengard series, and quite recently, the game was under intense controversy after it was said that the main protagonist, 2B, had a rendered butthole under her dress. It was then revealed that the picture that came out was photoshopped, but the discussion had already blown up, and the director of the game, Yoko Taro, was happy enough to ride along on the issue, joking about the leaked images.
