NieR: Automata PC Release Date, System Requirements Announced

While Square Enix has been quiet about the PC version of next week’s highly anticipated Action-RPG, they have finally broken that silence. There was an alternate trailer last week that showed a March 10 release for the Steam version, but it will be a week later.

Through Square Enix’s Online Store, the listing for NieR: Automata Day One Edition popped up, showing a March 17 release date. While Square Enix took down the listing, it was later confirmed through Twitter that this is indeed the release date.

For those who pick it up day one, you will be given a number of goodies which include a Valve Character Accessory, Machine Mask Accessory, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey & Red Pod Skin, and Cardboard Pod Skin.
