Series Composition: Yoko Taro, Ryouji Masuyama
Character Design, Chief Animation Director: Jun Nakai (Lord El-Melloi II Sei no Jikenbo: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note)

Developed by PlatinumGames, the action role-playing game was published by Square Enix on PlayStation 4 in Japan in February 2017, followed by North America and PAL countries in March that year.

Looks nice. Can't wait for it to come out. I hope they manage to adapt the story well into TV anime format, wonder how they will do it.

Still skeptical about this. Yeah the animation can look great af but it wouldn’t matter if the story is butchered. I heard Yoko Taro wants to give the anime an original ending and that might be for the best if it’s true. Hoping it'll live up to the game since it's one of my favorites.

I wonder how much it will be an advertisement for the game and how full-fledged anime. Judging by recent collaborations, the game is well advertised.

Hopefully this will be good. The original game was awesome, but I’m not sure if a lot of what made it special would translate well into a non video game medium.

I might be one of the few gamers on this planet that hasn't played this game, so I'm hoping that this anime does it justice and I can see why this game was so beloved

I'm talking about some graphical problems like with resolution. Playing with pad is better anyway.

my guess is that they will copy what Tekken Bloodline did and that is making the fighting scenes 3D while talking scenes are in 2D but im fine with that too

I have hundreds of hours in the Nier and Drakkengard games so I can't wait to see this. I hope Jun Eishima has some involvement in this.
