Yoko Taro posted an encouraging tweet (@yokotaro) about the end of this fateful year. Although it does encourage us to think about a better future in 2021, which is imminent. Perhaps this last cycle has been difficult, has resulted in many losses in many areas, and has affected us socially. But human beings have always known how to overcome and move forward towards the future. Yoko Taro, of course, is clear on this last point of her post:
The world was attacked by a terrible disease in 2020. I wanted to help make things better with my entertainment skills. But I couldn’t. However, there are many people in this world. I lost, but “we” will win in 2021. COVID-19 despised human beings and will pay a heavy price.
Hopefully the words of the author of works like Nier Automata are a firm line in verse to the new year.. May everything that has happened in recent months be diluted in new hopes and better situations for humanity. If not at least Yoko Taro will perform to entertain the world with the return of Nier Replicant through the remake which will arrive next spring. Remember, after the harsh winter, spring always arrives. Glory to mankind.
