Square Enix's Yosuke Saito announced at E3 2015 today that the publisher is working on a new Nier game for PlayStation 4. Platinum Games is collaborating with Square Enix on development of the new game, which Saito did not name.

In a teaser trailer, Square Enix named some of the creators involved, including character designer Akihiko Yoshida, game designer Takashi Taura, game director Yoko Taro and producer Atsushi Inaba from Platinum.

According to Taro, Square Enix approached Platinum Games to developer the new Nier with the intention that they'd add more action to the game. Taro said that details on the game are secret for now, but promised more information on the new Nier project this fall.

The original Nier was developed by Square Enix and Cavia. It was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010.
