Watch Nier: Automata's Yoko Taro Finally Accept His DICE Award

Yoko Taro's wandering DICE award has come home.

News by Nadia Oxford, .

Nier: Automata won best RPG at the 2018 Dice Awards last month. It was another accolade for Platinum's surprise hit, but nobody showed up to claim the award. If there's anything more "Yoko Taro" than him not showing up to claim an award he justly won, I've yet to hear about it.

That's not to suggest Taro's unappreciative, of course. He and Nier: Automata co-producer Yosuke Saito showed off their award on Twitter earlier today. It was mailed out after the DICE Awards, and it arrived safe and sound.

As for the reason Taro and Saito weren't present at the Awards to begin with? Simply put, Square-Enix didn't expect to go home with the award. Dang. I know Persona 5 is stiff competition, but believe in yourself, guys! You deserve it.

    Yoko Taro is the man Square needs in this memey internet world.

    I'm not sure how much he helps them earn money, but he seems to be helping square keep some love, as almost everyone who sees vids like this comes off with a feeling of "Yoko Taro is a treasure we don't deserve." Which is true too.

    I thought I would take this game after a price drop but the price has almost never dropped, even on the net ..
    it's still pretty amazing, and I think I'm not the only one to have heard praise on this game, it is as well sought after today
